One of my favorite lens, until I owned this lens always used to wonder why members are in awe but only after using the lens you find out the reason why.
I have been testing very many lenses, in particular, I had tested this against Nikon 135mm f2, Nikon 85mm f1.4, Nikon 105 f2.5 etc and this lens stood out by miles.
Amazing sharpness (tack sharp at F2), outstanding colors, very compact. The lens is so compact that it will always form part of the bag. Filter size is only 55mm. Ticks all boxes for me.
I did a comparison between Nikon 135MM F2, Nikon 85MM F1.5 & Tamron 90MM F2.5.
Mino 100 F2 out performed the other by a long margin. Mainly on colour, sharpness & compactness. Tamron 90MM F2.5 was the weakest link in this star studded line up.
