Re: Nikon AF DC-Nikkor 105mm or 135mm 1:2 D for Nikon D800?

With DX a 85mm has the same FOV as the 135mm on a FX camera. That was too long for me to use effectively indoors much of the time. When I got a FX camera I sold the 85mm and bought the 105mm DC lens.
I would concentrate on the FOV and working distance. For most subjects the optical quality aspects are going to matter very little and not likely appear in the finished print. It is a mistake to judge solely based on what you see on the monitor. Crop areas and make a series of 8x10 prints with each lens and then compare the results.
