Hi fellow Nikonians,
i am thinking of buying this lens for candid/occasional portrait
for my Nikon F2 and Nikkormat FTN via the ebay.Quite a few available currently.
It seems like a neglected lens in comparison to 85mm f1.4AIS/AF, 85mm f1.8 AF and the 105mm f 2.5 .How does it compare in terms of sharpness and contrast to the others?

Thanks for any input,
Jasper

Oh!I had the chance to use my friend's 85mm f1.4 AIS for a short period and it was fantastic with the F2 but it is beyond my means
