Time to dump my nikon 70-200 f2.8f vr?

I have been having some infrequent focusing problems with the lens the past year or so.

It goes dead sometimes.. I have to manually get the focus close then it starts working..

This is not a consistent problem, just hate it when it happens.

Time for Ebay?

Problem is I am getting up there in age and also my wedding business the past few years has been falling off, which is not a big deal for me since getting sick of the clients lately.

I don't feel like going for another expensive nikon 70-200.

The new sigma looks nice, but the weight is an issue I think since I dumped my pro bodies D3s a few years ago for the D750 which is much lighter, carry two cameras at all times.

So its either a sigma or a tamron or if its the best choice I would go for the nikon.

Or I just live with my lens since looking online they are not going for all that much now.
