    What lens mount is it? Nikon made that lens in bayonet mount to match their rangefinder camera (similar to Contax mount) and also made one for Leica/Canon screw mount. I once had one in Leica mount but it never focused correctly; it's a good lens though, I think I just had a bad one.

    I've got one of these in LTM, the Nikkor-Q. Performs brilliantly for me.

    According to tests carried out by several people the lens is very good indeed. Have a look at the test done by Ken Rockwell, that says it all.

    It's a very good lens, I had one and the only quibble I had was the focal length - either too long or too short; I sold it and bought the 105.

    I've got an F-mount Q version with seven aperture blades and a shockingly beautiful blue coating, like this one:

    http://www.destoutz.ch/lens_135mm_f3.5_944851.html

    It is a stellar performer with a special look, which I think comes from having such a simple optical formula (only four elements) that also happens to be one of Nikon's oldest (it predates even the Nikon F). Unlike the 105/2.5, the 135/3.5 never reached legendary status due to its pedestrian maximum aperture.

    I have to admit that I'm a wide angle junkie and I almost never use lenses longer than 50mm, but when I do, the 135mm f/3.5 is the lens I grab. Mine no longer accepts filters due to a drop, so one of these days I'm going to get another of the same vintage.

    When you ask about Nikon lenses it would help if you could include a serial number. This way the exact model could be looked up. Asking whether a 135/3.5 Nikon lens is good is like asking whether a Ford car is good. What model? What year?

    I no longer have a record of the number, but my example was a Nikkor-Q pre-AI, ca. 1969-70. Very good lens.

    Really? Just how many lens formulations did Nikon make of the 135/3.5?

    They made it in two mounts, two or three generations of single coatings, non-AI, AI, and at least one generation of muticoating. I don't know how many optical tweaks may have occured, but they were all the same design.
