135DC vs 85 1.4G
In reply to sting, Apr 3, 2012

I do not own and I also haven't tested the 105mm DC lens. But the AF of the 135mm DC on the D3s is much slower then the AF of the 85 1.4G lens. I have test both lenses. The AF speed an AF accuracy has been one of the main points between my tests of the 135 DC and the 85 1.4G lens. So I have finally purchased the 85 1.4G.

Nikon D3s, AFS 16-35/4.0G, AFS 35mm/1.4G, AFS 24-70/2.8G, AFS 85mm/1.4G, AFS 105mm/2.8VR, AFS 70-200/2.8VRII, AFS 200/2.0VR, TC-1.4E II, TC-2.0E III, SB-800
