Olympus EP2 | 105mm | f/2.5 | ISO200 | -1.0EV | Auto WB
Nice shot... it is a great lens
Oh that’s nice! Beautiful child and captured so well.
Do you mean Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 as I see the title being 105mm f/2.5????
nope we mean 105/2.5
Nikkor lenses at 105mm focal length
a classic lens
Wow.. thanks for the info
I do have Nikon 105 f/2, and Nikon 105 f/2.8.. but I didn't know about the classic one
Very nice informative site.. again thanks
that is a great site - they have sections on Olympus

Wow, 105mm at f/2. That kicks!
Here's the lens we're talking about (specially made for this thread).
This 105mm f2.5 is modified version by Nikon which is based on the design of Carl Zeiss RF 85mm f2.0 Sonnar.
The Nikkor 105/2.5 was introduced in the early 1950s, and was originally a Sonnar formula lens. Around 1973 the lens was redesigned, based on a Planar formula. The original Planar lens was single-coated, then multicoated. All of the Ai and AIS series lenses are the multicoated Planar-formula. The latter is probably slightly sharper, the Sonnar lens is quite sharp, and the "Sonnar Look".
I use a Nikkor-P 10.5cm F2.5 in Leica mount on my M8, will be using it on the EP2 was well.
Above are wide-open,
This is at F4:
I have it in S-Mount, LTM, and several in F-Mount.
lovely pics, brian. the sharpness is amazing.
The rangefinder version of Nikkor-P f=10.5cm 1:2.5 ...I also use it on my M8
I have to try the 10.5cm F2.5 on the EP2. I've been using the Nikkor 8.5cm F2 and Nikkor 5cm F1.4 on it most of the time. The latter will focus to 18".
This thread has got me thinking to get a PK>:43: adapter for my Sigma EX 105mm f/2.8 Macro...
Will have to wait a few weeks though, I just ordered a M>:43: adapter... I may just use combination's of a +1,+2,+4 set on my ZM 50mm f/1.5 instead... it will be a smaller and lighter solution for sure.
I also use the 8.5cm F2 and 5cm F1.4 quite often, especially on M8 as the built-in viewfinder can handle both lenses close enough. However for using 10.5cm on M8, I have to use the external Nippon Kogaku zoom view and calibrate the field of view, both magnification and parallax, with a digital shot before using.
a couple from today - actually on a proper 4/3 camera ( oly510) - but results on a micro 4/3 should be similar
I have the 105mm 2.5 so it's encouraging to see that folk find it works well on m43. This and the AIS 50mm 1.8 I will certainly keep and at some point find a use for.
I bought this and couple of other lenses (one of which is 55mm f2.8 AIS) without knowing much about them from someone who was selling it on craigslist (He didn't know much about these lenses too). And I must say, this lens is super sharp wide-open. Here's my favorite photograph from this lens:
Another one from last weekend:
Could I see more samples of this lens? I recently just won it off Ebay. How's it's performance throughout the aperture range? I owned it previously, and thought it was pretty sharp, though I'd be interested in it's performance with a M43 camera.
