Would that be a Helios 58/2 or is there a 55 that I don't know about?


Good point - here's the original listing in which it states a 55/2

The photos aren't large enought to clarify completely but I think you're correct that it's a 58mm

Nikon FC-E8 Fisheye Converter. Once I get in the needed step down rings I want to see how spherical panos look on my Nikon1 V1 camera. Hopefully I can get good enough quality with only 3 or 4 shots vs 8 with my my 10.5mm on my my DSLR's.

To answer your question, I believe that when they went to the MM mount, it changed to the 1:2 C-Planar. I could be wrong though.

AFAIK S-Makro Planar 60/2.8 and Makro Planar 100/2.8 C/Y were only AE.


That's what I thought. Thanks, gentlemen.

Here's a stupid question: alt = alternative? Kinda confused because I saw a Nikon "alt" lens used in a Nikon body amongst the posts.

... do you know if they ever made the S-Planar 60 Macro in MM or was it just the C-Planar?

I believe manufacturing of the 60/2.8 1:1 moved to Japan and was renamed Makro-Planar, but retained the AE mechanism. My version is the original S-Planar (engraved "Lens made in West Germany").

The older manual focus lenses are generally considered alt, regardless of manufacturer. There is also at least one member who posts Canon L lens shots on Canon bodies, but he is impossible to discourage.

Carstenew and Helimat, is this correct in terms of the alt forum, an old manual focus lens Nikon on an a7 is alt, but on a Nikon camera, it is not?? thanks

They both sound like Alt, to me.

"Old manual focus lens" is Alt, regardless!

Picked up some second hand Minolta SR lenses & a couple of old FD mount one.

Minolta Rokkor-HG 35mm F2.8 (Pretty much perfect, little bit of oil on blades)
Minolta Rokkor-PF 58mm F1.4 (Blades were stuck, fixed but can't get all way down to F16).
Minolta Tele Rokkor-PF 135mm F2.8 (perfect condition)

FD mount:
Tokina EL 28mm F2.8
Canon FD 50mm F1.8
?? Ross MC 80-200 F4 (Can't find any info about the Ross brand/lens)

Both alt. It isn't really fair to penalize Nikon for keeping long-term compatibility AF is where the line is usually drawn for Nikkors.

Good news for those awaiting their OTUS, mine has finally arrived after a 2 months wait, that means the second ( ? ) batch is pouring worldwide !
Extremely smooth focus ring, not convinced about the rubber ...will certainly catch dust like some USB keys, grip when cold ( ? ) and the " open window " above the markings is a gateway for dust or worse
Will test this WE if wheather allows ...

Not a lens but I just bought a Minolta XD11 from Texas, apparently not been used in about 30 year so hoping it will be mint as described. Can get rid of the plastic X700 if it works

sweet! hope the internals are still good after sitting for all that time. it's definitely a step up from the x700 in pretty much every way.

Just bought a trio of Tokina's: 12-24 f4, 16-50 2.8 and 50-135 2.8. Had the 16-50 and 50-135 Pentax equivalents and they were fabulous lenses. So far, both seem to equal their siblings on my D7000.
