Is there any button or tab on the 55 that got moved?

I think my next lens is going to be a 55mm f/1.2 followed by some letters

keh has a 55 F1.2 AI . I think that is a factory AI?

They also have a 55 F1.2 S AI'D. Does that mean someone modified the lens to make it an AI?

Plus the have a 55 F1.2 S NON AI I don't think I want this one do I?

I'm confused. (no news there ) Which one do you recommend?

Maybe I should just get a new 50mm f/1.2

At any rate I'd like to hold out for an EX+

THanks

Love it! Would be strong in B&W too ;-) But I love the colors (favorite colors of mine), the strong lines and the shadows.

Quite lucky to be able to isolate the man, waited for him to walk into the field of focus, and oddly, the crowd seemed to disperse at that moment

With the 45mm PC-E, full tilt



Chin, beautiful work, and great timing. Especially because the guy has his arms crossed, you get the feeling that it is posed, but he moves his legs.

BTW, I forgot to congratulate you with the puppy! Post some more photo's, please?

I haven't posted a picture of Mr Rockstar lately. Here he is doing what he does best!
The bad new is, Rocky has put on a little weight and is on a diet. Last time at the vet he weighed 6.5# He should weigh from 5#-5.5#

Monty, I have a 55 1.2 S AI'd. I think Curtis has the 55 1.2 SC AI'd and likes it too. There's some other users here too with it, maybe Matt?

I think factory AI'd means some authorized place AI'ed it, it was one of the non-AI versions before.

There was an AI version of the 55 too, so that's just how it was produced. That should match one of these serial #s from the photosynthesis site: Ai 55/1.2 400001 - 425518 - Apr 77 - Apr 78. All other versions are older and needed the AI kit.

I lucked out with a 55 1.2 S AI'ed (not sure if factory AI'd or some individual did it, but yeah that's what it means, it was done after the fact). Its a lot of fun to use at 1.2 or 1.4 or even smaller apertures. Mine was from somewhere around 1966 I estimated and very well taken care of.

Here's the photosynthesis site for more research.

http://www.photosynthesis.co.nz/nikon/lenses.html#50fast

If nothing else I can understand the lingo now after spending a good amount of time on that site

I think the non-AI ones can damage the camera (although some people here say that's what they are using with a DSLR, I am not sure how).

Uh-oh! I'm having a problem today with my new pre-AI 55mm micro. Yesterday I put it on and it worked fine. Took pictures and everything. Today I put it on and it says "Lens not attached" and won't allow me to take photos.

Any ideas? I rubbed off the contacts. They do not appear dirty. I tried it both with and without the PK-3 and same thing. It won't activate live view and won't let me take a picture.

The D5000 is only designed to use non cpu lenses in manual mode ONLY. Have you tried it in this mode? Like Samy says above, some pre ai lenses can damage a camera, so they say.

DOOOH!! Sorry! This is my first pre-ai or manual focus lens and I just realized that I had the camera in Aperture priority. Didn't even think about it because it's rare that I get out of manual mode anyway. Thanks!

I'm confused. (no news there ) Which one do you recommend? First one, or buy Reagan's 50 f/1.2

Maybe I should just get a new 50mm f/1.2 Buy Reagan's.

This thread is moving like crazy, going to have to go back through the rest of the pages I missed later. I'll offer up a quick shot though. A portrait with the NIKKOR 105mm f/1.8 AI-s of a friend of a friend at a tapas restaurant in Kensington Market in Toronto.

NIKKI IN ROMANIA: POST SCRIPTUM!

No, this is not a blog post... Leighton calm down please! I'm not cheating you! It is a message just for people on this thread. The purpose is to tell you what are the lessons I've got in my time with Nikki and then to show some pictures I did with Nikki with some members of my family. I feel more comfortable to keep these things only for the readers of this thread...

Long story short... Because this trip was planned long before to know that Nikki will be here right in the second part
...Show more

Mihai, I haven't commented on your last couple of posts, but you can be sure that I have seen, and you did a great job.
And now you write a very nice evaluation about your holiday and time with Nikki (and you other lenses). Very good analyses!
I feel privileged to get such a good look on life in Romania but what you have shown us. Thank you very much!

AND I feel honored that you want to share your loved ones with us, and giving your mother the place she deserves!
My mother died at the age of 93 years old after having given birth to 11 children, and she was an amazing woman. She taught us to keep our eyes and heart open to people and the world and that we should try to let us be amazed about something every day. I sometimes forget, but I'm sure a good family is the base of happiness.
Thank you, you did a great job!
