The 105 most mentioned is the AIS 105. It's ugly and works great.

I have the 105/dc; expensive but as good as it gets for nice blur in the background and clean sharp in-focus area.

I only have an f4s, and it has arrows to tell you which way to rotate the lens, and a green light to show acceptable focus.
