135 and 105 behave almost identically
In reply to ChicagoViews, Sep 3, 2008

I compared the 135 and 105 before buying the 105. They behaved near identically in terms of sharpness, contrast and bokeh. It really is just down to which focal length you prefer. At the time I had a DX digital, and the 105 felt better. Perhaps now I am on FX, the 135 would be better, but to be honest there isn't a great deal in it.

A hot topic with the 135 and 105 is that they tend to front focus slightly at closer distances.
