Based on the focus ring it looks to be the original "F" version from the early/mid 1970s. So I don't think it mounts, you need the AI conversion kit for it to mount properly on the modern F mount.

Thanks I'm not so good at that, so it'll probably be then

Sadly, there are no Nikon AI conversion kits available for the 16 f/3.5 so for you to mount the lens Ronny, the aperture ring would need to be cut down. If you don't feel comfortable tackling a job like that, and I can understand if you'd rather not, Georg may be able to direct you to someone in Europe who will do the job for you. I'm sure there are camera technicians there who provide that service, as there are in this country. It looks like quite a nice copy of this lens. Good luck sorting it out.

I suppose it is a reasonable price.
This is supposedly a great lens as Curtis and others has showed here.


That is the lens I've been shooting of late. All the photos of musicians have been taken with that lens, though I have one with the conversion kit installed. I'd be sorely tempted to buy this lens which is in cleaner condition than mine, but I mistakenly bought another 135 f/2.8 lens in pristine condition but it is a K version. It has almost exactly the same form factor and is like new, so I don't think I need to upgrade the Q.C. lens.

Yes, it is a really fine lens though sadly, there are no conversion kits so it would need to be cut down for use on a DSLR camera. Our film fans would fare a bit better...

Or you can buy a F3 and shoot away to your hearts content, no mods required.

If you look at the large images I wouldn't call it "pristine". In fact, I'm not sure I'd give it an excellent rating the seller is giving it. Look closely, you'll see that it has some sort of blemish on the front lens, and the body has some scratches on it as well. But overall, it's in very good condition.

I agree with Ray, that is an excellent set of images. The 105 f/2.5 is a great lens producing wonderful colors, excellent contrast and fine sharpness, all evident in your work here. Very nice Leighton...

I'm with you, it's EX+, but NOT mint. Look at the nick in between the 55mm and 1:1.2 in the first image. When I think of mint, I don't expect to see ANY marks as big as that. Maybe I hold to high of a standard.

Any experts have recommendations on my quandary regarding the 35mm f/1.4 AIS? Should I hold out for a vesion with a serial number higher than 479XXX?

One thing that isn't visible is mold, mildew or some form of fungi! My way of catching this, sadly, is my severe allergies to these, imagine that, being so close to the nasals!! Also, how about haze as well! I have been there many times!

I'm no expert on the 35mm, Ray has one, maybe he'll weigh in on it. BUT, if I had to choose between the 35 and the 135/2 it would be the 135 all the way!

Hi Leighton. Sorry my question is not clear! It was not 35 vs 135 (I *WILL* get both one day). I am wondering if buying a 35mm f/1.4 with a serial number lower than 479XXX is a good idea. According to that link I posted, above 479XXX gets more aperture blades, and Super Integrated Coating. I can't find one higher than that serial number now so I am dead in the water buying one until I get lucky. I just want to confirm that waiting is the right thing to do.

That 135mm f/2 AIS lens is real beautiful!

Very nice series Leighton. Looks like that rain was really coming down. Hope it was a warm rain at least. Did you keep the gear dry?
