Re: Is the Nikon 105mm D F2 DC a desirable lens?

It is a single purpose lens, portraits full stop. You can use it as a general purpose 105mm, but there are better alternatives for that.

I like exotic optics, the images have a certain charectar. But each to his own. I will no sell mine, having owned it for less than a decade. The build qaulity is rock solid, so I expect it will perform for years.

Here is one from yesterday, F2.0, one stop anterior defocus. I could have softened the ladies features in post, but I preffered the elegantly aged, wrinkles and all look.
