Lenses for (converted fx) infrared use?


I have been scouring the web for info on lenses that work well for infrared photography. I have a 720nm converted d700 and am struggling to find info on modern f glass that works well.

so far I have ruled out the following for my usage;

20mm 1.8g

24-70mm 2.8g

28mm 1.4e

70-200mm f4 vr

85mm 1.4g

300mm f4 pf

of the lenses I have the ones that are usable from f8 and below are

16-35mm f4

28mm 1.8g

50mm 1.8g

105mm 1.4e

105mm 2.8g micro (poor at landscape distance though)

I would really like a 24-85, 24-120 or 28-200mm but I can not find any modern info on these lenses and what apertures they are good at. A lighter short tele would be great as the 105mm 1.4e is a beast to haul in the field.

I would really like some options in the f/11 range if possible.

Does anyone have any personal experience that can help?
