It was tough, but I decided. I let 10.5 go and kept 135. (I reasoned that I need to reduce amount of the lenses I already have because I bought analog camera as well and I already have 105 1.8 )

Now I´m in search for 50 1.2 ai or ai-s. I´m slightly leaning for ai version even though in the past I had an ai-s which I liked a lot. I wonder now - why I sold it? :-D

Years ago I remember deciding between the AI-S 105/2.5 and 135/2.8. Both were the same price. The 135mm has more reach, the 105mm is slightly faster and a bit more compact, otherwise their performance and handling is similar. I went for the 135 as it gives me more reach and better ability to blur out the background. I found it very useful as the longest lens in my compact travel/hiking kit, 105 felt a bit short.

Ai has 7 blades, Ai-s has 9.  Key factor to consider.

... and which I did not find discriminating, in that particular case.
