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.

Pros: Sharpness, precision, image quality, speed of focus

Cons: At the beginning it is difficult to understand the function of Defocus

Opinion: Objective that I think is suitable for different photographic uses. I've been trying it for a few months for Still Life and Food, and I have to admit that it gives me more satisfaction than other so-called "food or stiil life" lenses. The only thing that is not easy to understand at the beginning is the special defocus function. The construction is excellent and on the d500 you leave well to handle.rnPrice - Quality ... scondo me right! There are lenses around that have a price totally disproportionate to what is then the quality. On this high-end lens the price is worth.rn

Pros: Strong construction ergonomics also pleasing to the touch.

Cons: insufficient compared to what I expected.

Opinion: One of the first goals I have used in the past with the Nikon D3, along with an AF-S 14-24mm f / 2.8 G ED. For me it was a great disappointment at the time, perhaps because I had too many expectations about that. At the same time, I also had a Canon kit (1D MK IV and 5D Mk II) with several L optics including 85 f 1.2 and 135 f 2, I expected 105 F 2 Defocus Control, wrong, something like a middle ground that would do it it looks like a potty at the yield of Canon 135 f2 L and 85 f 1.2 but I was illusing. From the very first results I immediately realized that the approach was unpredictable for both the focal length completely different from that of its intrinsic quality that I am very disappointed with. She gave me flat pictures, with no depth of volume and a blur that I could never let it go down. rnrnVisually direct comparison with more powerful optics has played an important role in forming my personal opinion on this lens, which I find unjustifiably exquisite with respect to what is in gglad to return.
