Default Unusual Flower of Some Sort

I'm not much on Latin names and such but I do have fun photographing things "up close". I'm considering purchasing a Nikon 105mm micro f2.8 D or the Tokina 100mm f2.8. The price for the USED Nikon is about the same as the Tokina is NEW. I'm on the fence about which one to get.

The photo below was shot with a Nikon 35mm f1.8 wide open @ ISO100. Obviously it was cropped significantly.

Which lens would you get?

Lovely shot of a lovely flower. Suspect I would go for the Tokina mainly because it would have a guarantee. Very little difference in optical quality between macro lenses from major manufacturers.
