I love the rendering of this lens as well as the sharpness. I often fight with myself between whether to take this lens or the awesome 105mm f/2.5 AIS.

I have the F2.8 version, they're pretty much the same. Wondeful build and renders lovely.

The 135mm F3.5 Ais is a Sonnar formula lens, tracing back to the 1940s in the Nikon line-up. I think it was the last Sonnar formula lens in F-Mount.
The Nikkor-Q 135 F2.8 is a fairly unique formula, not a Sonnar. The newer 135 F2.8 is a Planar, very similar design to the newer 105/2.5.

I just snagged an E version of the 135/2.8. Any idea if it shares a similar pedigree with any of the other 135mm manual focus lenses?

I got it to see how it compares against the 135/3.5 that I have.

The Series E 135/2.8 and 100/2.8 are both 4 elements in 4 groups- like the Nikkor-Q 135/2.8.

Be sure to post a thread with the results.
