Discount Nikon Nikkor 105mm F/2.5 AIS with Built In Lens Hood and Rabbit Ears - Fast Prime Portrait Lens with Lens Caps
Here we have a lens that's a legend in the vintage photo world. This Nikon Nikkor is one of the most famous and well respected classic Nikon lenses of all time, the Nikkor 105mm F/2.5 AIS fast portrait lens.
This example is in good condition cosmetically and is mechanically perfect. It is the AIS mount version of the 105mm lens, which means it's usable on nearly every Nikon SLR and comes with a built-in lens hood. It is being sold at a discount due to the filter threads being dented. This blemish does not impact performance or image quality, but we cannot call this a perfect lens. Accepting this caveat, the below description is accurate.
The lens elements are exceptionally clean, with no fungus, balsam separation, cleaning marks, or abrasions. The aperture is free of oil and super-responsive, with blades that snap fast and accurately. The aperture ring clicks nicely into its detents, and the focus ring rotates with exceptional smoothness. Filter threads and mount are in perfect condition. There may be minor dust specs commensurate with age, but these are infinitely small and do not impact image quality.
The Nikkor 105 F/2.5 has been used to capture an unfathomable number of amazing images over the decades, among which are some truly famous images.

The Nikkor 105mm F/2.5 is one of the most incredible portrait lenses around. Shooting wide open, it creates some of the most pleasant bokeh you'll ever find. Stopping it down results in unbelievably sharp images.
