Quality Control Issues

  • Excerpt: The lens produces stunning images when manually focused. The AF system however is very finicky and the sample I got front-focused horrendously. Even +20 compensation did not resolve the problem. Also, while the construction is nice and sturdy, the built-in hood is a bit short for the 135mm focal length. The hood is also very flimsy and does not provide confidence that it will last. I ended up returning the lens and getting the Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

Disappointed

  • Excerpt: I've had this lens since September and I've finally decided to send it to Nikon to check it out.<br /><br />The focus is just not right. <br /><br />I took it to a local photo store and they said it looked good to them but I'm just not happy with it.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus
