What made Nikon and the other companies choose such a specific focal length as 105mm?
With 8.5cm (85mm) and 13.5cm (135mm) lenses already in their rangefinder lineup, The Nikkor-P 10.5cm (105mm) was a natural fit between the two, 100mm would have been a bit close to 85mm. The same focal lengths then translated to the F mount and have continued ever since...

Or about half the field of view of the ubiquitous 50mm "standard" lens of the era?

The f1.8 version of the 105mm never caught on like the f/2.5 models. Bigger and heavier than its less wide-eyed sibling, but still an excellent performer.

A question for the thread: How many 105 lenses does one need?

This must be a trick question.

One needs as many 105mm lenses as necessary :D

For me, that is a pretty substantial number :D

Most of them are 105/2.5 versions (S- and F-mount), plus various f/2.8 and f/4 Micro-Nikkors, Bellows-Nikkors, the tiny 10.5cm f/4 T, the mighty 105/1.4 AFS, and of course the 105/4.5 UV-Nikkors.

The Df is synergetic with the 105/2.5 (AI). My girl friend Ruth in her kitchen, very low light level in winter.

A question for the thread: How many 105 lenses does one need?
It's a great focal lenght and serves more purposes.   I use now the Nikkors 1.8 Ai-S,  2.0 DC, 2.5  Sonnar and Gauss versions,  Micro 2.8 Ai-S  and AF-D  and 4.0 Ai-S   (and the 100mm Rodenstock Heligon f/1.6  and Carl Zeiss Visionar f/1.6  come close)

This is with the Sonnar version (from 1969)
