Pros: sharpness, bokeh, size, weight, handling, construction, price, robustness...

Cons: absolutely nothing... well, minimum focus distance could have been a bit shorter maybe.

Opinion: This lens consistently yields good to excellent pics, if I may say so. Of course, photographers make good pics (or not), but this lens sure helps a lot. I have three version (105/2.5 AI, 105/2.5 AIS and the very similar, but obviously bigger 105/1.8 AIS). They are +/- equally excellent, with following nuances: - 105/1.8 has a flatter field and is best against bright lights, but full aperture is rather weak (sharpness and bokeh) so it is in reality a f/2.5 - 105/2.5 AI has a slightly better bokeh (rounded blades) - 105/2.5 AIS is most convenient for street/travel (sliding hood) All three are quite sharp at f/2.5, so handheld shooting in low light is an option (e.g. details inside churches). Top sharpness is provided from f4 already, until f/11 (included). Very nice range. The version I do not have is the earlier sonnar version (the above all have a 5-lens xenotar formula, AI and AIS sharing exactly the same); the sonnar has a good reputation for portraits but is less of an allrounder. Of all manual focus lenses, this one is maybe easiest to focus on modern camera bodies. Nikonians, and especially Df huggers, complain that those Nikkor 105/2.5 never come off their cameras.

Pros: Parfait,netteté,bokeh magnifique, solidité,on sent a peine son poids.il est dans ligné des best de nikon

Cons: Rien à dire.....

Opinion: Un vrai bijoux pour les portraits.c'est de l'auteur de la fameuse photo de la jeune fille afghane de Steve mac curry.je le recommande fortement pour les portraits.il est superbe sur mon Nikon d700,un super couple.agreable au toucher,du verres et du metal... Je l'utilise pour les shooting portraits ,parfait. Mais il se débrouille très bien aussi en paysage. Un vrai bonheur...

Pros: Metal and glass... And what glass! Great for portraits, the blurry is Impressionist.

Cons: He's a certain age so he doesn't have vr, but they're the cons that you obviously know you're going to meet.

Opinion: I start that I own the Ai version, it differs from the ais only because of the lack of the built-in lampshon (the latest ais models also have a SIC coating, while all ai and many ais are NIC coating), and to have a better focus (personal opinion). It's really a gem. The blurry is extremely pictorial. For the figures he is in (I paid him 60 euros in good condition) it makes sense to buy it.

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).
