Nikon 135mm F2 Ai/Ais ???

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Johnnymg, May 31, 2005.

  1. Anybody use one of these bad-boys?

    Interested in comments and how it might compare to the newer DC version.

    TIA

    I do have one of them floating around, but cannot remember into which cupboard I last put it. So shooting with it on D2X has to wait.

    You can however expect far softer rendition at wider apertures than with the corresponding DC lens. The 135/2 gives quite sharp images at f/5.6 or so.

    The AI version of this lens has a very short, sliding lens hood, and very stiff focusing action. I would opt for the AIS instead.
