Well, it's called the 105/2DC I suppose. Only compact lenses like the 50/1.8D get to be made into AF versions because the optics are so small and light. The AF motor would have to be huge to move all that glass in the 105/2.5 . . .
the 105 f2 DC is closer in aperture and size to the 105 f1.8 AIS. It certainly wouldn't fit in a pocket as easily as the 105 f2.5 versions.
Apart from the joy of using lovely bits of engineering (a bit like playing with steam engines), one of the main appeal of the MF lenses is how compact they are (though not necessarily light-weight!). Apart from my excellent but rubbishy-build 50mm f1.8D all the modern lenses seem like monsters in comparison, and the idea of a full set of good quality primes in a small bag or my coat pockets would be unrealistic with current versions.
Since Nikon no longer has an AF motor on all bodies, you now have to buy an AF motor with every lens, which is often redundant. And although I sometimes like using the image stabilisation on my Sigma 150-500 zoom, I could get by without it, and it is yet another thing that makes the lens heavier (what about Sony's approach of moving the sensor rather than the lens? that way you would get stabilisation on all lenses)
What it comes down to, is if I need a large rucksack to carry my kit around, I won't take it with me, however fantastic the lenses are.
