Pros: Colors and of course the blurred ...

Cons: The blurred in defocus unmanageable, not having fully understood it in use

Opinion: Purchased in the remote 1996 and used both on the 90X and on the F5, I could not make me like it in its specificity of use: I always ended up using it without correction (distortion, better) and therefore smooth was a decent 105 but at the price of a rank lens. Light, well made, a Nikon as expected. To make me reconcile, the thieves took care of it and took it away. Amen.

Pros: Quality, yield, construction and obviously blurred

Cons: AF not always precise (solvable with mirrorless Z series obviously manual focus)

Opinion: It is a very particular lens (like the older brother 135mm), I do not recommend the use to those who are beginners must know how to use and understand, for those who love portraits and blur is a lens that despite its years also holds the 45mpx of modern machines. It has its own poetry and complexity, it can also be used with AF of old SLRs, but frankly I am better with modern mirroless for the simple reason that at very open apertures from f / 2.8 to f / 2 it has very little depth of field and the f / b focus is always around the corner, while with the focus peaking of the ML you can also use at f / 2, unique in its kind with the DC ring (defocus control) that you can intervene by increasing or decreasing the focus in front or behind the subject, moreover using it in the wrong way deliberately (not always) but sometimes you can pull out special effects that make the portrait unique, personally owning them both, I think that in 105 you notice more the DC effect of the ring even if it is easier to get defects such as aberrazzioni or images more Soft. It is definitely a lens that if you try it you will not leave it anymore, certainly it is for a more studied and posed photography, the sharpness is of a high level, below f / 2.8 it softens a little but for those who take it for its blurring it is a softness that does not mind at all, and after more than 10 years I still keep it with me in my kit. As for the blurred is really creamy, and very pleasant, usable also in other areas beyond the portrait type landscape, still life etc. Highly recommended, maybe a little more versatile than 135mm. final result passed with flying colors also in 2023 lens that must at least be tried!

Pros: Particular Optics, colors, construction

Cons: Af in the use of de focus.

Opinion: For years I was considering the purchase of a DC nikon, undecided between the 135 and the 105 also having the 180mm I opted for the smallest for versatility and perspective vision: the scheme of the 2 DC nikon is practically that of the nikon 85 1.8D (from various readings on the history of these optics) and in fact the color rendering is the same but the project is more accurate and can be seen from the materials used, from the fact that a TA has no particular chromatic aberrations if not a little coma up to 2.5 (something common to almost all af-d and this is no exception), however from the first shots this lens does not suffer from purple fringing like my 85 in contrast areas; 20mm difference compared to the 85 make the blurred more creamy and decisive to ta and you notice, as you notice the weight of the lens a little more important in the materials used; the de focus is very particular... it is a matter of varying in an "incorrect" way the spherical aberration, in the front position it tends to blur the foreground more and become hard in the blurred behind and to blanch a little, rear on the contrary does the exact opposite, obviously this behavior is not exempt from problems such as accentuated coma (in the maximum excursion of the very accentuated de focus) and the af calibration that is missing with front and back focus in the out-of-specification use limiting in fact the use in manual focus or accepting the out of focus used in af.

Pros: Simply Spectacular

Cons: Poorly digestes AF of the d610

Opinion: So I've wanted this lens ever since I bought my first Nikon, after so many years I found a used one at a fairly new honest price. Sharpness, incisiveness three-dimensionality construction just plain proud. But alas not having AF ultrasonic you have to rely on AF of the Reflex and here that begin the pains. Then when it works all in all and fast and accurate but alas at a time was Impallava and I had to continually change framing to make it focus. Once I risked (if there had not been my partner) to miss an important shot in a wedding is not a pleasant experience. I tried it and tried it but it seems to be a problem with these lenses with DC in fact I replaced it my despite with 85 1.4 D that works instead a marvel. If you use it on a PRO SLR instead I assure you that you will not have problems and I highly recommend it.

Pros: sharpness, particular focus, construction, aperture ring aperture, maneuverability

Cons: I can not find it, it's worth all his money

Opinion: Taken used, like new, with packaging, etc., I use it on Nikon Df with great satisfaction and not only in the portrait, field in which excels for the ability to make very particular focus once understood, through experiments, the operation of defocus. And in fact, even in the landscape ensures a superb yield in terms of sharpness (even at the corners), transparency of the shadows, color rendering (that typical of the Nikkor). The best performance is between f: 2.8 up to 8. The construction is excellent, of other times, nothing to do with the sensations provided by the materials that today go for the greater on AFS optics. For me, which almost always shot in manual, the ring of the diaphragms is a pleasure. Highly recommended.
