Just wanted to give you other options if you go manual focus, if you can find one you could get the voigtlander 125mm f2.5 but its a little longer. for reference see: http://thepictorial.com/reviews/clash-of-the-titan-macros/

From what I have seen the 105mm dc makes good portraits and is not as contrasty as the Zeiss but that is a matter of preference. There is one lens that could be a cheaper but a good option and that is the manual focus Nikon 105mm f2.5 Ai/Ais if you don't need the macro, in excellent condition at keh.com for $235-310 with free shipping.
