Probably the all time classic, the sonnar 180 2.8
Super cheap, produced in the millions in east germany.

There's a 200mm variant of this lens too in M42 screwmount, also made by the former post-WWII Carl Zeiss Jena. Fine & dandy image quality. Drawbacks: large, heavy, long minimum focus distance (~2m) and lacks a tripod collar.

No :p Kubrick modified a Nikkor 180f2.8 for his Arriflex 2C. That's all. I said Ijust use the latest model. I use it on a Nikon camera and In my opinion this lens have an interesting bokeh.

I sold all of our Nikon equipment, except the ZF 2 lenses we use for motion.

The only thing I miss is the 200 F2.

It is a magical lens and I'm not a long lens guy, but once you zone in on the lens, the look, it's just rocks.    It's impossible to explain but it's the only long lens that allows me to get into the humanity of a subject.  The rest just look too detached, even the Canon 200 f2.  (don't know why).

Agreed. I love that lens.

I think Nikon's got a whole series of shortish teles that render people beautifully: the 85 f1.4, the 105 f2.5, the 135 f2.0 and the 200 f2.0. But of those four the 85 and 200 are just magic.

Hi,

Another great JR picture. JR always has some great stuff, but his works on sports and athletes are the ones I like the most.

Best regards
Erik
