The 20mm UD is a special purpose lens, I find I really have to work at it to use it well, it's so comprehensive.
Hope you find a nice one. Mine the barrel looks like it went thru the Vietnam war but the glass is A-OK. Got it for a song.

I love the 105/2.5, also have an older version. Such a sweet signature. I have the 85 range covered by the awesome 85/1.4 Planar with my Contax kit so never got the Nikkor versions though I've been tempted. Picked up a 200/4 AI recently from someone on this site for only $50 a couple weeks ago. Focusing a bit stiff but workable. Just shot a roll couple days ago to decide whether to spend a little more dough to have it re-lubed to help the focusing stiffness, negs look good but I've yet to print or scan any. If you think the 105 is too long then 200/4 would be even more so. But I was surprised at how useful it really was walking around and taking some shots from my car at the longer traffic lights (yes, I know, should not have the F2 around my neck while driving...), I'll share some from that roll soon....

I'm sure that 20 is gorgeous. I have trouble myself that wide. Have the 21 Biogon for my Contax G2 but struggle to get images I'm truly happy with. Gotta keep trying....
