Re: AI-S lenses

I really love my Nikon 85mm f/2.0, my Nikon 135mm f/2.0 (oh the Bokeh), my 105mm f/2.5 and the tiny and sharp 20mm f/3.5.  I also hawe a 135mm f/3.5 non Ai which is different enough to be a keeper.

the 85mm in particular is compact, renders beautiful colors, sharp and fits my Fuji X-Pro1 perfectly.  The 105mm f/2.5 is sharp, sharp, sharp and I use it quite often.  The 135 g/2.0 has utterly creamy, smooth and luscious Bokeh and is stunning for portraits and I mean stunning.

I sold all my G lenses, even the stellar 14-24mm 2.8 G and I also sold my 135mm f/2.8 because I didn't like the color rendering as much as the 135mm f/2.

these newer cameras like the Fuji X series, make all these old pro metal Nikons completely relevant and useable again...  My old skills in terms of manual focus are coming back fast.
