I know there's not many copies of this lens floating around, but it needs a show-off thread

Thanks for starting this thread. The 135mm f/2 DC is a gem when it's used correctly.

Part of a jewellery shoot with my daughter, Valencia, Spain.

Tried something slightly different for the processing in #1.

Is it just me or are a lot of these samples really missing a lot of the dynamic pop that we are seeing from lenses like the 50/80 offerings from Sigma?

I am a Sigma user but for portraits I honestly prefer the rendering of this lens over the other more contrasty lenses. It's something between the 85 1.4d & the 200 F/2 VR1.

I bet Nikon will get rid of those archaic and cumbersome DC features in the digital age if they ever update 135/2 line.

I haven't really used my 135mm f/2 DC wide-open much.

The lens design is over 20 years old so it's going to be flat compared to new glass, but comparing it to Sigma's "dynamic pop" is a joke. The new Sigmas IMO can be overly contrasty with dull colors at times. That said, if Nikon had a new 135/2 with Nano coating it'd put this old lens to shame color and contrast wise.

I'm a Sigma fan, but talking about Sigma pop is just fanboyism.
