Nikkor 135mm f/2,0

Fell... broken!

Found on an online sales site for “apacher”, this optic was offered in two pieces.
An impact had separated the front and rear parts, the guide and the diaphragm drive were twisted, a screw broken in the bayonet.
The rear lens had a few small impacts and a slightly damaged coating in the center.

Why deprive yourself of it, you have to be playful, it was a new challenge!

The bent parts were straightened, the optics dismantled, the helicals regreased and reassembled correctly.
The small impacts on the rear lens could not be improved and the damaged coating was completely removed by fine polishing, the other lenses cleaned.

Despite his mistreatment, the care provided brought him back to life and he is still performing very well.

This 135mm is one of the best in the AI/AIs range. In digital as in film, its performance is excellent.
An ultra bright, big, heavy, built only glass and metal which ensures from full opening.
