AF prime macro search

D5200-Does anyone besides Nikon make a 70mm or 100mm prime macro lens that has a working Autofocus with the Dx format cameras. Full frame lens or DX format would be fine. I won't use autofocus much with macro but would like to have for portraits, etc. Any input is welcome. Thanks in advance.

    70-100 range. I`m not finding any that will autofocus with the 5200 except the Nikon. Any links would help.

    @Ragnar The Sigma 105mm F2.8 HSM OS will also AF on the D5200, but it is about the same price or more expensive than the Nikon version. Go with the Nikkor IMO.

    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    The Nikon 105 F/2.8 is the best macro I have owned. I concur:

    I have the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 and it is also a real sweet macro lens

    I have also used a Tamron 150mm macro during a workshop and the pictures were good.
