Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 Ai wide open test shots

Hello! I recently was gifted an old Nikkor 200mm f/4 Ai by a friend and had a lot of fun with it. Actually it inspired me to look more into the Ai and Ai-S lenses and have really enjoyed manual focusing while photographing. I am very much a beginner, been shooting for only 2 years now and want to encourage anyone out there that picking up a MF lens can be a great experience.

That said I bought a very used and scratched up Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 Ai with really spotless glass. The original owner had etched in a serial number and i'm guessing was a professional. The following are from the last few days testing it around the house and I can't believe how sharp it is wide open. i'm really impressed and this 100 dollar lens is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
