Is the Nikon 135mm f/2D AF DC-Nikkor Lens right for you? Learn all you need to know about the Nikon 135mm f/2D AF DC Lens in The-Digital-Picture.com's review!
Nikon's DC-Nikkor family is only two lenses deep, comprising just this one and a 105mm f/2. A full-frame lens, this 135mm f/2 ($1,080, street) converts to about 200mm on a Nikon D80.
I bought this lens to shoot portraits, I already have a 50 1.4 and 85mm 1.8 but I wanted something with some more compression and even smoother bokeh. Paired up with my D800 the photos are spectacular.
Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Heavy, Slower focus
The lens produces stunning images when manually focused. The AF system however is very finicky and the sample I got front-focused horrendously. Even +20 compensation did not resolve the problem.
Blurry Focus, Slow Focus
I don't normally write reviews but this lens deserves five stars! So here we go. I have owned it for three years. Other primes have come and gone from my collection (105 2.8 VR, 85 1.8 D, and 85 1.8 G). This one will stay. If you have the working distance this lens will produce for you.
I've been wanting this lens ever since I got into shooting with Nikon, I've worked with an old canon FD 135mm f/2 SC on my film cameras for many years after switching to nikon DSLRs, I've missed having this focal length handy.
My main portrait lens. Everything look great with this, razor sharp at f2, smooth bokeh, fast, built like a tank. For me the choice between the 135 and 70-200 was the size and weight : I don't want to carry all day long the zoom beast for street portrait photography.
compact, sharp, incredible bokeh
purple fringes, no VR
Thought I'd bring this review up to date and reconfirm what most have already stated. This 'fast prime' remains a phenomenal lens. An absolutely wonderful piece of glass to have and use.
DC of course, Excellent build quality, the built in velvet lined lens hood is a nice touch., Fast aperture, one stop better than the 2.8's, Fast enough autofocus, Sharp enough to draw blood if you want.
Some sample variations that were front focusing. I found two that had this problem. I don't think I would buy this lens used without being able to check for this abnormality., Auto focus is a tad noisy if you're used to AF-S lenses., Pro Quality=Pro price. It always seems to be that way with Nikon.
