    I fully agree with your conclusions and assessment of this lens. I just want to add to the topic. Lenses of the E series were produced by order of Nikon by Cosina Japan Ltd. This is the reason why the lenses of this series do not have the traditional name Nikkor. But the lenses of this series are quite good, especially considering their cost, and have a good, reliable design.
    Best regards, Georgiy.

      Kaleinar-5n will be more interesting.

    This glass is offered in very good condition for 200 USD ...
    What do you think: is it worth taking for this price as a portrait on the D90?

    What limitations will I have with this lens on the D3100, auto-focus is not relevant, usually I bring the circle in the viewfinder?

      There will be no metering, the aperture will be controlled only with the help of a ring on the lens.

    Will the circle in the viewfinder work at 3100?

    Arkady, tell me, is it possible to install a chip on such a lens for more comfortable work with exposure metering and focusing (d3000 camera)? Thanks for the review.

    Arkady. Everything seems to be correct. But in the examples of the photo for a typical portrait lens, there is not a single portrait: ((

    Arkady, you probably misspelled the comment, not AF-S, but AI lenses.

    Arkady, thank you for a super useful resource for amateur photographers !!!
    Question. Is it needed for, weaving, for a portrait if I already have 85mm 1,8d and 70-210 f4 (I bought it after reading the review)
    Question 2. How convenient and fast you can focus on this lens. I tried to twist the lens with my hands on the green dot at 85mm and 50mm also 1,8, on these lenses it’s not very convenient to do this, especially at 50 mm
    Question 3. What is better in terms of the price-quality ratio of niccor 135mm f2, 105mm 2,5 or 100 mm f2,8?
    I'm waiting for the answer.
    Thank you

    Unshaken is more relevant, independent of those who want to (here we will not give a finger) trying to go ahead and forward by seeing the moderator on the OLX website.

    although the topic is old, but where the examples on the D700 are “RAQ -> JPEG”, I think it should be “RAW -> JPEG”

    After the purchase, I did not take it seriously until I began to get it out of my bag more often.
    Regarding the dimensions and sizes - a fluff, it feels like you are carrying only a carcass.
    Gives a nice soft picture.

    I bought this lens (first version). Personal impression - Kaleinar inferior to him.
    Can someone tell me which hood is right for him?
    Will this not give vignettes?

    Today, on occasion, I got this lens and how good it is! I just did not expect it. Yes, the review says that it is sharp with an open but damn it! It is sharp with an open even on the D800 when viewing pictures at 100 percent increase! The edges of the picture are even good and clear!
    I did not expect this. Great purchase, I can safely recommend it on any compatible camera!

    Bought it recently. Works with a Fujifilm xt20 mirrorless camera. An excellent, sharp lens for an amateur with good contrast. The Nikkor 105 f2.5, touted by the author (see the link in the review), can now also be exclusively an amateur lens. However, in comparison, 105 has no chance compared to 100. Yes, optically 105 is somewhat better than 100. However, the weight is 200g versus 600g, the price is 4-5 times less and the quality is quite sufficient for an amateur clearly determine the winner.

      Sure sure. So tell me - the price. Otherwise there are a lot of smart words just to justify your poverty. Or greed.

        Both lenses have the right to life. 100/2.8 Nikkor, judging by the photo, is quite a good ernostar, light and small, but not too sharp. 105/2.5, which is double-gauss, is much sharper, but subjectively I don’t like it from the picture. But 105/2.5, which is Zonnar, is a very pleasant glass in all respects.

        Sure sure. But weight and size have nothing to do with this. If you want to carry a brick, that’s your right, but others may have a different point of view.

    Well, as I wrote. Camera jpg, reduced in accordance with the requirements to 1mb, dimensions reduced to 1920x1280
    For comparison, the distances are about 950m to the obelisk, about 3 km to the arch.
    A lens with which you can run 15-18 km. Small, light and sharp. They want to film. No car is required in addition))).

        I ran around Paris with 2 lenses: this and ttartisan 17mm f1.8 without a tripod. I like it. All other lenses were left at home, incl. and Fujifilm.
