I have just replaced the Nikkor 135/2 with Carl Zeiss 135/2.
The results blew me away. much sharper at f2.
The Zeiss has neutral colors as opposed to a more warm Nikon

Wonderful Bokeh maybe the best I ever saw on a manual focus Nikkor
and still usable free hand for some portraits or street photography.
I would prefer the AIs over the older AI version there are a little differences
in the finishing and its worth the price.
Second pick if you are on budget would be a AI modified Nikkor Q 2,8/135.
Great mechanics and a piece of wonderful craftsmanship – a little softer
wide open but usable one stop down at f4 with still a amazing rendering !


I’m not sure about the rest of the specifications, but the image you have is a picture of the 135mm f/2.8, not the f/2. The latter is a much bigger lens!


I was thinking the exact same thing! I have the 2.8, but I used to own the f/2 and it was an ungainly beast!
