Re: Nikon 135mm f1.8 hopefully Blazing Fast AF? Who plans to buy?

Hi, everybody!

I can say this Nikkor 135mm AF-S f/1.8 VR is most awaited lens for ME since the information about patent on this lens had appeared. Before that time I waited Nikon to renew 135mm f/2.0 - add AF-S and VR. But I hoped Nikon could make something like Zeiss Sonnar T* 135mm f/1.8 ZA (for Sony), which is absolutely fantastic optically and has incredible min. focus distance - 0.72 m, which is very useful (at least for me). I wait the same marvel from Nikon!

The current Nikkor 135/2.0 DC has beautiful rendering but it is 1) highly overpriced and 2) outdated (no VR, no AF-S, stupid DC, high Longitudinal CA, sharpness could be better - for high-MP bodies).
Best regards,
Alex.
