I have recently purchased a Nikon 60mm macro lens from a work colleague. Prior to this was experimenting using either the Nikon 28-105mm or extension tubes. I feel that now I have a dedicated 1:1 macro, that the tubes and 28-105mn are now surplus to my requirements. Would you agree or disagree ?

Try the tubes with the macro lens.
Are you never going to take anything other than macro shots?
The 28-105 offers a lot more range and options unless you are never going to use that range.
It's not a question that anyone else can really answer.

I have a Nikon D7000 at the moment but once funds allow will look to go FF hence trying to ensure the bulk of my kit is FFcompatible. Lenses I have are:
Nikon 24-120 f4
Nikon 28-105 macro f3.5-4.5
Nikon 50 AF-D f1.8
Nikon 80-200 f2.8
Nikon 60 f2.8
Tokina 12-24 f4

Because it's not as useful as, say, 16 or 18mm at the wide end for a walk-about lens, and would be a source of frustration for me.

With that lot, unless there was a compelling reason to keep the 28-105 (i.e. it's smaller or produces better images than the 24-120) then I'd flog it.
