Gorgeous lens Roberto. You definitely have come to the right place to show off that beauty. Rafael has ventured into this territory as well and we've had a number of discussions on these oldest lenses. My evolution has taken me from AI and AI-s glass into the world of converted pre-AI lenses, but I've not gotten into these really old lenses. That probably comes in part because there are no AI conversion kits available for the oldest lenses and I have a strong aversion to cutting aperture rings. I certainly have no judgment of those who do take that route...Show more →
Great Lens Roberto, I have one bought a long time ago and would be interested in sample photos from yours. The ai ring is still available as you show.
I have a strong preference for the original ai ring for old lenses, but for those that never had a conversion kit (mostly the ones with no screws in the bayonet mount), unless the lens is truly like new, or a special serial number, a well cut aperture ring is fine.
There is a facebook group of true collectors, not users like us, with members like mr. de Stoutz and Sover Wong. Members of this group often buy a factory ai converted lens and want to trade the ai ring for the original non-ai, I recommend joining it.
