Yes, yes, blasphemous it is. The 105/2.5 AIS is not going away any time soon - it's still 105mm and it's f/2.5.
I have a 135/2.8AIS on the way and a 135/3.5 AI or AIS soon and we'll see how those guys do.
I don find that sometimes I pick a lens to take based on the ability to post images in this thread as opposed to the much less personable Landscape, Best Nikon Images, etc. threads.
It happens. I don't own the 35/1.4 AI-S even though it is probably my favorite MF Nikkor as I had more suitable needs for my kit. I certainly expect the day to come when most of shooting happens with bodies and lenses with the labels Mamiya, Fuji, Leica, and Zeiss ZM. I'll never sell all of my MF Nikkors (or all of my Nikon bodies) as there is so much to be said for the vibrant, welcoming community of people here in this thread. Here is to hoping that Nikon does something innovative and not iterative in the future of the mirrorless segment soon so that I can have a nice Nikon mirrorless body for posting in this thread. As great as the V1 is for less than $300, super long lenses, poor low light imaging, and massive DOF aren't exactly my cup of tea.
