This lens is legendary, and deservedly so. I use the very first edition (1959 design) on my digital rigs with superb results.

This lens is still a legend. The build quality of the early 70ths is the best I ever seen.
If you want a high-speed portrait lens for full-frame go for it you will not regret !

Hi Randle, I have recently bought a Nikkor 135mm f3.5 non-Ai lens from ebay which was quite good fun to play with and surprisingly sharp if I can focus (manually) on the spot. What makes this 105mm f2.5 such a good lens? I saw one the other day on ebay.
