Creamy backgrounds.

Ivan Barrera, Amazon

  • Summary: Wonderful lens. Once the DC feature is figured out, the softness and odd focusing of some of the pictures turned into beautiful pictures. Of course 135mm is a fairly good zoom for a DF camera, and I think it's great for casual portraits.

My favorite lens

Timothy , Nikon

  • Summary: I don't normally write reviews but this lens deserves five stars! So here we go. I have owned it for three years. Other primes have come and gone from my collection (105 2.8 VR, 85 1.8 D, and 85 1.8 G). This one will stay. If you have the working distance this lens will produce for you.

Best portrait lens!

  • Summary: I own a number of Nikkor lenses that I sometimes use for portraiture ( 70-200 f/2.8 VR, 85 f/1.8 ) but when I really want to flatter the subject with a beautifully blurred background this is the lens I choose.

Amazing bokeh, tack sharp, light weight

Milleama, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Love this lens! It's not too heavy. I use it for outdoor portraits It is sharp- even sharp when I pixel peep. It's focuses quickly although I have yet to try it out on a fast moving toddler or in low light. I pretty much shoot wide open withouth any issues.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

One of the Best

Clarence Simpson, Amazon
20 May 2012
  • Summary: This Nikkor 135mm DC lense is one of the best lenses that I have used for abstract and impressionist photo-art work. Once you take the time to learn the lense and its many engineered potentials, you will carry this lense in your bag at all times.

'Go-To' Portrait Lens

Adorama
12 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I work as a headshot photographer and use this lens every day. This lens is crisp and clean (as most nikkor lenses) and has incredible bokeh. The DC adds a subtle beautiful enhancement to that bokeh. My other portrait workhorse is an older manual focus 105 2.5.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Heavy
