nikon 80-200mm
double post
there were a couple of questions on the alt forum recently about "alt", the fact that the lens was old and MF was determined to make it alt and OK to post on a Nikon camera. Hope this is in the spirit of the forum.

There's already long "Nikon MF lens on Nikon Camera" thread, so no need to start a new one:

If this is a discussion on "Alt" lenses for Nikon cameras, there are adapters.



Schneider 50/1.9 Xenon via Deckel adapter.

Wide-open, zoomed in, close-in. Shot at sunset.

although- a 1948 Nikkor 5cm f2 Collapsible using an L-F adapter on a Nikon DSLR, I think anyone would agree that is an "Alt" Nikon lens on a Nikon camera. I'll have to get them out again.

So, this thread is for non-nikon (native and adapted) F-mount lenses on Nikon bodies?

If so- I have a series of adapters made by Nikon, for Nikon lenses to be used on the F-Mount. Two of these ( BR-1 and N-F) allowed use of S-Mount lenses on the Nikon F, the third allows use of Leica screwmount lenses. The latter made for enlarger lenses for use on bellows, but can be used for LTM used close-up. I have a 1952 25cm F4 Nikkor-Q, made for the Nikon "Viso-flex" that I should try on the Df.

Nikkor 25cm F4, Manual Aperture, using an N-F adapter.



This lens was introduced in 1952, about 600 made, discontinued in 1956. It is Nikon's first lens for the reflex housing for the Nikon rangefinder camera system.

You obviously don't know much about Sonnar formula lenses.

It's called field curvature. In the first shot, The back of the yellow flower is in focus. That's the kind of field-curvature you are up against with these old lenses. At the edges- point of focus is much closer.

just Saying.

Focus is on the middle flower. You can see the curvature of field with the leaves at the bottom of the image.

Does not fit the "alt" definition, but is uncommon.



The only Nikkor zoom lens to carry the "Micro-Nikkor" designation. Probably as far as you can get from the 25cm F4 regarding optical corrections.

I can see when the leaves are sharper than the flower, hotshot. Call it what you want,
it looks like you totally blew that 1st shot. That was enough for me. O,YMMV

This is with the Xenon, wide-open at F1.9. This is a rotating sign, the "disks" of it are staggered, so "Three-D".



This lens is "very 50s German".
