Haldunk, nice flowers, but this thread is for Nikon Manual Focus Lenses on Nikon branded bodies, please refer to the opening post of this thread, way way back on page 1, post #1

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/0#8774868

In the meantime, there's a similar thread in the ALT forum, where they mix and match brand bodies and brand lenses

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/board/55

Do come back with any Nikon branded body/lenses though.

Steven, both lenses work wonderful. Thank you so much. Here's a few example from your Nikkor 50mm 1.4 on Nex7. Now, I am looking for an old non Ai 85mm 1.8 lens.

Jose, they really liked their public art, it seems.

Peter, thanks. I use that lens hand held, and I just store those pesky mounts on the camera so they don't get lost. When I use the 300 or 400, it goes on the tripod mount where it belongs I have a feeling that chemistry is going to haunt my dreams for the rest of my life

Laura - like the new goats, not too sure about the "back to school" images ( I still dream about not finishing assignments!) and I have to assume that you put the long lens on just to show what the bag could accommodate otherwise you''d have the tripod shoe on the lens. Not so?



Curtis, you were on hiatus when I made the announcement. I'm desperately trying to hang on as it's not as easy this time around, especially the chemistry. Math, no problem, there's also an English Comp book in that bag, but it's so small you can't see it at the top of that pile.

Wow! I'm impressed Laura and I imagine other students are as well. It is never too late to dive into academic study. Hope you're enjoying yourself. I've been a bit of a lifelong students, though my days of being enrolled at a university passed over twenty years ago. But there are many ways to be a student, not least of which discussions like this. You were the first to give me a lesson on extension tubes and doubtless those conversations contributed to my later exploration. We can do that for one another. So yes, we tempt each other to buy

I just received notification that lens number 33 will arrive shortly. I won an auction on E-Bay for another pre-AI lens, this a 24 f/2.8 N.C. AI'd. The fact it was AI'd wasn't noted in the description or made obvious by the three photos included in the listing. But I noticed the rabbit ears had holes in them and the bottom of the aperture ring was clearly from a Nikon AI conversion kit. There were a number of bidders but I'm happy with the price I paid. Here's what the lens looks like... another beauty with scalloped focusing ring.

Thanks Chuong, Tony and Laura.

Choung, in fact the second shot was not a crop, I used the short distance focusing of the Micro 55/3.5.

Its really all Ben's fault. I was quite content with my kit of AI and AI-s lenses until he showed up with his 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd. That was the first converted pre-AI lens I bought. I immediately fell in love with the build quality and the scalloped metal focusing ring. From that moment in time I've bought only pre-AI lenses. This will be my ninth, though only eight can be mounted on my D700. My only two criteria in making these purchase is 1) the lens must already have the Nikon AI conversion kit installed, and 2) that the lens be in EX or better condition. More recently, I've been looking to get the last version of the lens, which typically carries a "C" designation, meaning it has the latest coating added. Except in rare situations, this means the pre-AI lens has the same coating as found in AI and AI-s lenses. This led to my purchase of a second copy of the 50 f/1.4, a clean, non-converted S.C. If I ever work up the courage I'll switch the aperture ring from the S copy I own so I'll end up with a pristine S.C. with the conversion kit.

This is all in fun... a hobby gone wild... I recommend it to my friends...

Nice work with the 16/3.5 Roland!

It's almost like we need to form our own splinter MF Nikkor group - just for the 16mm FEs

OK......I'll bite.

My fault huh? You may remember that - at that time everyone was gushing over the 50mm f1.2 - and I suggested the 55mm f1.2SC as a worthy alternative - as did Mihai. Somehow that turned into you buying 8 lenses in 2 weeks.

I'm thinking one of us may have a problem?

Truth be told, I like pre-AI lenses at any focal length. You're right Ben, I wasn't interested in the 24 f/2.8 N.C. when I first began experimenting with these lenses. That is before this particular facet of the addiction got hold of me... Now, just about any pre-AI lens in EX+ condition that has the AI conversion kit is subject to scrutiny and possibly a bid. But that is conditioned by price, since I'll certainly not pay $500 for a 35 f/1.4 N.C. AI'd any time soon. I also doubt I'd pay a premium for a 28 f/2 N.C. AI'd. I'm still looking for good deals, but frankly, I think I have just about all the pre-AI lenses available. Of course, if an 85 f/1.8 H.C. came my way... but then, wait a minute... There IS a copy of that lens soon on its way... Mmm.
