Roskilde-bloggen # 2720: Zoom-NIKKOR 35-105 1:3,5-4,5 Ai-s - macro-lens.

Det är ett arvegods och jag har aldrig använt det analogt.
This lens didn’t seem to get wide acclaim from professionals of that time. This was the first Nikkor lens to have a variable maximum aperture, and some may have had an issue with that. At the wide angle view, the widest aperture is 3.5. This darkens a bit as the lens is zoomed out towards the telephoto range, and at 105mm the functional maximum aperture is 4.5. Today, that system is typical of kit lenses and consumer-grade zooms, and is in no way considered a flaw. It was certainly a compromise, however. Yes, a professional probably had a 35mm f2, a 50mm f1.4, and a 105mm f2.5 in the bag, but at the cost of more weight and less convenience.
