Just a bit of fun. Here are four of mine (in no particular order). What are yours, and why?
- Nikkor 50mm f/1.8mm AIS Pancake (0.45m version). Love the small form factor on my D780 and the sharpness and bokeh at f/1.8.
- Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AIS. You cannot get the same f/1.2 look on any other lens that I know. The shimmery halo effect, the glow. Also love how the character of the lens changes with every stop from f/1.2 to f/4. Damn sharp at f/8. Maybe the sharpest lens I have.
- Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 AIS. For the focal length and aperture it’s tiny and renders beautifully from f/2.5 with contrast peaking at f/4. The hooded version is also something fairly unique and means you will never lose the hood. And the build quality seems something else.
- Nikkor 135mm f/2 DC. Skin tones are really amazing, and the bokeh is crazy good. The DC is a novelty, but gives some additional control on how the front and rear bokeh can look. It’s build quality is so good as well, and again the built in hood is of high convenience. It’s also a damn good landscape lens. People often complain about the AF performance, but I never noticed any issues in my copy
