This lens was made in about 1970, it's one the sharper lenses wide open that I have. Sometimes I take just this lens and nothing else. It never disappoints in image quality. 

 

This is one of my favorite knot holes. Shot at F2.8.

I love shooting details and the sharpness of the 135 F2.8 doesn't hurt anything.  I shot these images this afternoon at a local museum that has a lot of neat old outdoor exhibits. Ton more out here: http://www.pbase.com...etroleum_museum

Very nice details. I like the bits of light going across the wood in #1.

Thanks, Dennis.

great shots.

for many years the 135 was a must have in every standard kit.

35, fast 50 and a 135.

I've never used this lens for portraits but if I was into portraits, I'd sure be willing to give it a try. I'd bet it would be top notch.

I used to have the 135 2.8 AI. It's a nice lens and I used to use it with a Nikon 3t or 4t for macro work. Now I have the 135 2.8 Series E and I think the E is even sharper.
