Hi Dino,

Yes, that's quite amazing. Although the max setting might be way too much for my taste. BTW: What do you mean by 'dodge in the middle for a milder effect'?

This might be of minor relevance, but if I compare the most interesting images on Flickriver shot with the Nikon 135mm f/2.0 DC lens with those shot with the Nikon 135mm f/2.8 AIS lens there is a safe winner...:

Nikon 135mm f/2.0 DC: http://www.flickriver.com/lenses/nikon/135mmf2dc/
Nikon 135mm f/2.8: http://www.flickriver.com/lenses/nikon/135mmf28ais/

Of course it's possible that the f/2.0 is much more popular than the f/2.8. Or that only the more capable photographers are willing to spend that much money for a lens? ;D
