Review Nikkor 135mm ƒ1:2,8 on a Nikon Dƒ
One of the main reasons for buying an expensive Nikon Df is that you may mount most Nikon lenses from the last 50 years.
I found and shoot this old 135mm, ƒ1:2,8 Nikkor tele lens for less than 120 € incl. package at ebay – cool price, but does this lens will perfectly work on a Df?
As you can see, there are no spots, fungus or scratches on this old lens, only a few ones at the outer side – lucky me getting such a fine lens.
So now, have a closer look at my example pictures.
As you can image, there’s nearly no distortion – sure it’s a telephoto lens – you may fix this super light distortion in your post processing via Lightroom later. By the way – there’s no post processing in those review pictures.
Anyway – the nice thing with this lens is, that you get a colorful picture with nearly no vignette, it’s clear and sharp to the edges. I have to admit, that I love the bokeh too. So far a great lens on a new Nikon.
The lens in combination with a Nikon Dƒ works perfectly – the manual focus is a bit tricky as usual, but you should have no problems to get your picture razor sharp. The funny thing is that you have to turn the focus ring over 270° – from 1,3m to nonfinite – that’s a long rotary and nothing for a quick shot.
Whatever the case, the Nikkor 135mm works perfectly with a Nikon Dƒ, it delivers a cool vignette and colorful pictures with a fine bokeh, it is great for the most situations. Just a fine lens that you can easily use with your Dƒ – the best is the road price for a used one at ebay.
