Around twenty years ago I bought some used Nikon/Nikkor equipment from a buddy not far away from Oslo. Including the price he said that for free I could get a Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 AI (8023XX) with a damage on the filter ring (impossible to attach a 52mm filter, he said). I took the lens and made it possible to use it with 52mm filters. The picture you see is taken today with that lens, Df on tripod, aperture 8 with a Nikon pola filter. In my opinion a really great performer!
One picture taken is far better than none!

I have stated this before, but bears repeating: the 105/2.5 is synergetic to the Df. A perfect match. As it were the designers had envisioned the future camera ....

I agrée, the 105mm f/2.5 is a gem  ;) (even in B&W)
