I am doing the same as you Mr Click, working with the af problem in mind each time I prepare for a shot.  I checked the repair cost here in Australia and it was approx AU$600 so it will not get repaired.

I can't believe how things work out.  I ownded an excellent copy of a Nikkor 35-70 f2.8 and hardly ever used it as the 28-70 was the one I mostly used.  So I sold ithe 35-70 and just 2 months later the 28-70 focus plays up.

The options for this focal length are -

$2,045 - for a new 24-70 f2.8 (second hand for not much less)

$600 - repair the 28-70 f2.8

$350 - second hand 35-70 f2.8

I will keep an eye out for a good 35-70.

Cheers,
