I would agree with that new contact set...
When I first used the 105mm VR Micro I had some of those AF lock up (it's the heaviest lens I have, using smaller primes). After scratching a bit my head, I saw that it wasn't tight enough as I could rotate it a few mm with my hand on it. Apart from rotation, it was tight in all the other directions.
So when I had AF lock, I rotated the lens by a smudge and all worked perfectly, pointing to a contact alignment problem with this lens.
For other reasons, I had a change of mount, contacts, and AF module in this camera, and since never had that problem again...
