Pros: Optical quality, weight and size, mechanical construction, versatility

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: Great goal, his reputation to be one of the best goals achieved by Nikon is in my opinion deserved. Very sharp and also solvent on dense sensors, excellent colors, contrast and blurry. Very valid for both portraits and landscapes, ta and closed. You can also choose between the AIS version that has 7 straight slats (best for the more defined stars of light points in focus) or the optically identical versions Ai, K and PC that have 7 curved slats (better for blurring out-of-focus light points), what more can you ask for?

Pros: Excellent sharpness, construction of other times, light, compact and equipped with built-in hood

Cons: I do not see, except of course the lack of autofocus

Opinion: I use it on Nikon Df, with which it marries perfectly also from an aesthetic point of view. Very sharp, with a rendition of the excellent color and with a pleasant blur has nothing to envy to the most modern optics. It lends itself excellently to both the portrait and the street, although it requires a little attention in the focus. It is at great price on the market of the used (I took it from a nice user of the forum that I thank again).

Pros: Sharp already af / 2.5 and if closed by one stop becomes a knife. Blurred creamy and progressive, pastel colors and soft, soft ring, building "Old style".

Cons: Nobody.

Opinion: I have the version AI.rnLo was looking for a lot 'of time and I finally arrived home from a couple of hours. Tried immediately on D3 ... "love at first sight" superlative .rnLente, no difficulty in manual focusing thanks to the rangefinder D3.rnA f / 2.5 is incredible, closed scares. rnConsigliato to those who want a lens from portrait cheaply.

Pros: wonderful lens, perhaps one of the best medium-telephoto produced by Nikon optics, crisp, incidentally, microcontrast top, colors ultrafedeli

Cons: For me no, for those not accustomed to the MAF, if not forgive mistakes.

Opinion: I have this lens for 35 years now, and despite being switched to digital, I do not think will never part. absolute reference optics, all glass and metal, always returns true colors, sharpness at the top already wide open, etching and fantastic micro-contrast and blurred by fear. The MAF is a real pleasure, always fluid and precise in all conditions ... a must integrated removable lens hood. Optical born to portrait, gets along very well in every field of photography, I personally use it for macro and landscapes and is irreplaceable for me. If you find it used, do not let him escape, you bring it home to figures really negligible and will not regret it absolutely

Pros: A Series A lens, not only in a Nikon kit but also in a Mirrorless kit

Cons: In some shots you notice the UV permeability

Opinion: These 105 2.5 are still professional tools. The AIs and the first AISs are the most sophisticated (very high resolution and most closely controlled LCAs) and the MC treatment is already excellent and perhaps more neutral as the new color (from 1985 onwards introduced the SIC treatment) but which is a bit 'More saturated. Well I fell in love with this lens, I finally found a goal that TA is already very generous and I do not have to worry about diaphragm ... then ok, af / 2.8 there is a leap of quality, the resolution increases by at least 1.5 x To TA and maximum for this optic. At f / 4 the resolution begins to fall, the optimum should be between 3.2 and 3.5 overall. RnIn expert network, they consider it to be one of the best targets with Nikon, if not the best, Schneider Gauss optical design, with the Zeiss ZF and ZM, Leica Summicron 90 ASPH, Elmarit 90 2.8, Summarit 90 and Zeiss ZF 100 -Xenotar, with only 5 perfWell-treated to break down the flare, very high resolution (already at TA fixes over 60 lp / mm eaf / 2.8 passes the abundant hundred making it perfect for astronomical use) Great contrast macro, perhaps the best media half 1.5 m media brightness , And the only "esoteric" Nikkor canvas in European school. Great for portraits where the progressive transition between the focus plane and the blur part is masterful (the bokeh of this lens reaches the maximum between f / 2.8 ef / 4.5, where aberrations are now infinitesima and the PDC is still Reduced), but also in landscapes and astronomy, where it also returns point points to the edges of the frame (at f2.8 it has no coma). The fact is that the 105 / 2.5 primates together as a solution, macrocontrasto, flare / transparency, distortion and side CA and has coma and astigmatism susceptible to ALL Nikon, benefiting from lower brightness than 1.8, symmetry and German design Schneider style / Leica, it's oneOf the most perfect lenses ever built in history, along with the Micro 55 / 2.8 AIS, Elmarit / Summarit 90, and the ZF 100.rn The modern alternative is the Zeiss ZF.2 100/2, but you know what it costs. This lens is also great to match Sony's or Olympus-powered mirror adapters (which cost 10 euros on amazon) and are great for super-pixel-type D810, A7R machines that need super-resolved lenses, in fact, on a dense sensor Is even sharper than on a seldom (on NEx 5n goes in full aliasing). The same happens with the 55 / 2.8 Micro Nikkor. This is QUALITY.rn
