In a nutshell, I never cared for the 60 f/2.8 AFD but love my 60 f/2.8 G.

I just bought another copy of the AFD because it has a bit more working distance and it has an aperture ring so I can use my Nikon extention tubes, but it is not as good as the ED for general use. I prefer it for macro for the reasons stated.

I didn't particularly care for Nikion's 105 f/2.8 VR but absolutely love the Sigma 150 f/2.8 APO.

I liked the Nikon but preferred the Sigma. I felt the Nikon could have done with a tripod collar. I like the extra working distance and have a slight preference for the IQ of the Sigma too. I also like it for portrait.
