Nice shots Kevin. If I recall, the Nikkor is not a huge lens to handhold. I don't use my Kiron 105mm at all anymore because of the weight/camera shake issue.

Need to cut down on the coffee (or head back to the gym) :smile:

Yessir...that 105 2.5 was the lens in the near focal length back in the day. It was compared to the 90 2.8 Tele Elmarit with good reason.

Nice stuff Kevin. Does the effective 2.8 wide open aperture double with the focal length on adaptation to the mu-43 body? Some on this forum say so... Doesn't look like it to me...

Hadn't really used it since i bought it last year, and certainly not on the e-p1... was very plesantlly surprised.

a bit of CA at wide open... but Apertures new CA tool helped that.

must try it next on the 5d to get the full retro full frame effect :)

i am sure dof is tighter on full frame... but was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to focus.... the right focus usually just popped in - easier than on shorter lenses

I actually got 12 keeper shots out of about 60... a pretty good ratio... especially as i haven't shot in weeks

Which version of the 105/2.5 is this? The original came out ~1954, a Sonnar forumula lens. Around 1971 (or so) Nikon switched it over to a double-Gauss (ish) design. Also picked up multi-coated optics ~1973.

Nikkor 10.5cm F2.5 in LTM, on the M8, wide-open. This one is the type 2 in LTM, dropped the lugs for the bayonet mount Sunshade.

I have 6 of these, four in F-mount, different optical revisions.

That would be the single-coated Sonnar version. Some of the earliest ones had more aperture blades (8 or 9?, I forget).

Yours is optically the same as my rangefinder versions.
