[sdiy] Odp: low input bias current opamps

The answer to A) is no, because of 1)  Recently I made some THT design and was just so happy about it until I found how many parts that I freely use in SMD are simply not made in THT, so the choice usually comes to one part if any.   The answer to B) is usually Mouser, but they have sometimes errors in describing parameters, or take different values to the table, like "typical" for one part and "minimum" for the other part. Sometimes I use DigiKey, mostly because they seem to have more refined parameters to search and I can type the quantity of interest, and then sort by the price. Mouser sorts only at qty 1 which is useless.  And obviously all manufacturer's websites contain parametric search, which is the most accuratre, but still I prefer Mouser because it gives me guidance of the price and availability.   And if it's for some S&H, why don't you stick with TL0xx? Are you sure your switching key has lower leakage than bias of TL0xx opamp? Or try LF347 maybe but it's inferior to LF444 in this application anyway.   Give LF444 a chance, get new ones, maybe they were handled very badly and inputs were damaged by ESD because of bad storage. They would still work but bias may be in range of nA instead of pA.

So, here are my questions:   A) Do you know of such a thing  B) How does one go about finding such a thing, generally?   Thanks in advance!
