Yes, the old lenses were special.  I already have too many good lenses in the 85-100 mm range, including two from  Ziess, so I cannot justify buying the Nikkor 105 f2, but I also have something interesting from the '70s, that will give any of my lenses  stiff competition in both sharpneness and bokah. Oddly, it is a Vivitar Series 1 90mm 2.5  Macro made by Tokina and that I bought for an F2 over three decades ago.  You can pick them up on ebay for ~300.00, and they are a wonder.  Check out the article below:
