The Nikon 135mm f/2 AIS (3rd generation) lens was introduced by Nikon in 1981, and provides the ideal answer to photographers needing a fast telephoto lens while shooting in lower light conditions. The Nikon 135mm f/2 AIS lens offers a long focal range and a super fast f/2 speed in a marginally portable lens. The 135mm f/2 AIS is longer and faster than just about anything a reasonable person would wish to carry on them. This lens is perfect for portraiture photography when you want to have tack-sharp focus on your subject while selectively defocusing the background. The 135mm f/2 has excellent bokeh, and its signature look has become a favorite amongst professional photographers around the world.
