I borrowed a 135mm /2.0 D AF DC from a friend, and boy is this a nice lens! I enjoyed playing with it for an afternoon, and using the de-focus (more a focus plane-shift control, really) was fascinating.

So I take a look-see, and notice there's also a 105mm version of this lens. I note that these are relatively old lenses (from 2006 and 2001, apparently), and neither has AFS or VR. Intriguing.

Has anyone compared these two lenses back to back? Any differences (other than focal length)to note?

(I already have a 105/2.8 G ED-IF Mico VR, so I was more interested in the 135 DC, unless it's noticeable worse.)

Thanks for any enlightenment.

Arthur
