Kiron 105mm 1:2.8 F-Mount

Bought a small box with Nikon slr camera's and 2 lenses.
The camera's(Nikon f401, f601 and f801s) are for sale again with one lens. I bought this box for one reason. The box included a Kiron 105mm 1:2.8, wich was, according the seller, in good condition...
Well it makes photo's....but...
The focusring is not in good shape feels like i'm only moving air most of the time, but it goes eventually. It doesn't seem to move completely tot 1:1 and infinity is totally lost... Sometimes the diapraghm hangs, but a small but gentle slap with a finger makes it go in the right postion...

But.......... i LOVE it....
Why?

See Below:

Iso 400 - f4 - handheld @ 1/320 and 1/250




I knew the rep of this lens and despite it's flaws, the images it produces are perfect for what i want.
Shall i get it repaired, it will set me back 150 to 200 euro's, or shall i just go and save money for the Nikon 105 1:2.8 micro VR?

cheers, Peter.
