This is a ridiculously nice lens, ideal for both portraits and landscapes. Wide open the subject is pin sharp, the superb bokeh just wipes out the background into a dreamy blur of colors and shades. Stopped down to f7.1 it is Nikon's sharpest landscape lens at this focal length range.
Most likely the best auto focus Nikon lens ever made. The only other that compares is the twin to this lens the 135MM F2. I don't even own this lens, but I am going to buy it. I rented this lens to cover the Napa Valley Film Festival.
This is the only Nikkor lens I have used that reminds me of the Leica glass I used to use. The results are unique. No it is not the "sharpest" lens made and the DC feature is somewhat obsolete with the advent of Photoslop, but pictures delineated with this tool at f2.0 are unlike any...
This is the finest portrait lens I've ever used and I can't stop gushing about it. The picture quality is fantastic and it's increasingly more exciting to use everyday. Compared to a handful of other lenses I've tried and used, this is by far the best.
Superb images Tough build
A little big and heavy.
All the good you hear about this lens is true. It is built like a tank and outstandingly sharp. It can be pricey, but it is well worth it. Defocus Control is fun, but I don't think most users will use it much.
Well built, very sharp, built in hood.

The 135mm f2 AF-DC Nikkor lens is a perfect example of why Nikon has a reputation for catering to the demanding requirements of professional photographers. While the company does produce many cameras and lenses that are easily accessible by amateurs, there are also those pieces of equipment that are...

Best lens you can buy for portraits instan sharpness
Why are people walking away from DSLRs? Because the pics don't tell them anything. In lenses with very few elements (glass), if they' re good quality, produce the most realistic "3D EFFECT". Lively pictures, full saturated colors. The main subject really pops-out, the picture comes alive.
This is still one of the sharpest lenses produced by Nikon. Great portrait lens. The defects control takes a little bit of getting used too. Especially wide open. Practice with this lens. Learn how to use it and you will never be disappointed.
The Nikon 105mm has been the benchmark for all 35mm portrait lenses and this lives up to the tradition. I don't care that much about the DC function, I do care about the sharpness, angle of view, working distance, minimum focusing distance of the lens.
