Thoughts on Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di AF 1:1 Macro USD lens (2012 version)

Opinions on this lens versus the Nikon 105mm 2.8G? Local store has one used for sale for $300. According to DXO, it's quite sharp (at least as sharp as the 105, with similar specs in terms of CA, distortion, sharpness, etc).

Just wondering if I should go for it or get a used 105 for around $600.

I can get a 2 year warranty for an extra $40 which I will probably do if I get the Tamron.

This is NOT the 2016 version that can be tuned in the dock, but from what I read (the one at the store is the 2012 model), there was no changes to the optics so optically, they are identical.
