Nikon 100 2.8 Egreenspun.com : LUSENET : Nikon Ai / Ai-S Lens : One Thread
I just saw the title and figured out to post the first post, congratulations!!!!!!!!!
I just found out a few month ago a pearl in the cheap Nikon lenses, the 100 2.8 E, I have been using it for a some time and the results are great. I was woundering If any one else tried it and what are their impresions.
Good luck with this new forum. Diego K.

I don't have the 100 mm E, but use both the 28mm E and the 75-150 E zoom. They are very good performers and are compact, which is usefull for travel photography!

Sounds like you are confirming what most people who have _used_ the lense say, that it is great.

Got a Series E 100mm f/2.8 recently. It was a bit pricey but I think the investment is justified. The lens is in first class condition and looked like it was sparingly used. I'm currently using this with a Nikon FE and the results from the first roll that I shot are terrific. Very sharp images.

Ive owned the 100f2.8E in the past, it a decent lens but its got 2 weaknesses. 1. its a bit soft at 2.8 due to only 4 elements. 2. its color correction and contrast is weak because it is not multicoated. This dosent mean its a bad lens, but when I later replaced it with the 105f2.5, the difference was obvious. One good thing is that because these are always in demand, if you decide to upgrade, there will be a good resale value.JC
