    Hi, i could buy this lens for little money.
    I have read that this lens can damage digital Nikon dslrs.
    Could it damage a mft body too?
    Might buy it for portrait , and for
    macro with a reversed 50mm

    You should be OK. The F mount adapter has a decent flange-distance so there will only be an issue if the lens protrudes significantly back into the camera body.

    There are some sample images over here - no indication if the 135mm images are AI or non-AI though -

    re

    OK so the 135mm should work.
    Was looking at a Nikon 180mm too , very sharp .
    But is 180mm not too long ?

    If you want something a bit shorter, the Nikon 105mm 2.5 non-Ai/Ai/Ai-S are all very sharp lenses wide open on M43. For a bit less, you can get a Nikon 100mm 2.8 Series-E for a bit cheaper and is also very sharp (I own this lens).

    Maybe you're looking at two different lenses. but wow, 100€ is a lot of money for a 135mm f2.8, even if it does say Nikon or Nikkor on the front. Seems to me you're paying for a great name and sharpness that you won't necessarily use for portraits. How much is a Canon FD 135, a Konica AR, or Olympus OM 135 in your marketplace?

    Might buy it for portrait , and for
    macro with a reversed 50mm, so sharpness might be an issue.
    Canon FD is 50E
