    The latest issue of AP has a Clifton Cameras / Sigma advertisement that features the 105 mm F 2.8 EX DG OSM MACRO 'from £329'.
    Given the current price of the Tamron 90 mm F 2.8, this must be a possible alternative. I recall reading good things about previous models in AP. Park Cameras list it at £339 in a Canon mount, but are 'awaiting stock'.

    I had a version of the Sigma 105 with a slightly asymmetrical diaphragm. Apparently this was common.
    The various versions of the Tamron 90 have always been well regarded by the standards of their days.
    I use a105 Nikkor. f2.8. Its about time that Nikon updated the vintage 200mm macro. If they did so as a Z lens I might be encouraged to buy a Z camera. Apart from that I am sticking with my DSLRs.

    I do not find the lack of IS a factor when shooting without a tripod. My shots are probably not true macro and I use faster speeds so camera shake is not an issue. I do shoot a lot of flowers and butterflies with this lens.
