    What does it mean, "(Sonnar Type)"? Is this somehow different from the legendary 105 2.5 Nikkor we all grew up with?

    Here's the story of the transition from the Sonnar type to Gauss type:

    And the prequel:

    Both versions are great lenses.

    Yep that sums it up pretty well. The newer version is not better or worse. Just different.

    I would like to update this last lens to a. AI/Ais version for consistency purposes as my other two lenses are newer-generation.
