    Okay, I stand corrected: I just mounted mine and measured the closest focus distance, and it's exactly 29.5"...so, basically two and a half feet, or .75 meters. I knew it was less than three feet, but I was off by a bit. Thanks for prompting me to check that.

    In the old days we measured focusing distance from the focal plane mark on the top of the camera. This can add several inches if we include the length of the lens to the mounting flange and the film to flange distance.

    I measured from the lens mount. So, add an inch or so.

    edit- a great source for Nikon info http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography.../htmls/models/
    I also have several versions of the Nikon 105/2.5 and, like others have said, the pre-AI Sonnar-type is the best for portraits.
