I don't have 105mm F2 DC but I have the 105 F2.5 AIS on the way to me. I also have 85mm F1.8g which I use a lot. Lovely lens, CA is the main problem with it.

I can post my impressions onceĀ I receive it probably within a week.

User ratings of 105 F2 DC are amazingly good. The only negatives I was told about this lens was the CA in some uses and that it was in need of an update.  But I think you'd be happy with it.

I am using a D800E though so 105mm on APS is really about 165 and that is getting a bit longish.

But then you have analysed your keepers so you already know which is best.
