Re: AI-S lenses

50-135 f/3.5 AIS zoom is as sharp as a prime. It makes a great portrait zoom on a full frame camera, and an excellent landscape lens too. In terms of sharpness it is probably as good as 70-200 f/2.8, for 10% of the cost. The bokeh is excellent, the color transmission is excellent, and, apart from being MF, it has only one drawback -- it is susceptible to zoom creep. But given its optical qualities and a great build, this is a fairly minor drawback IMO.
