I now have 4 older Nikkor manual metal lenses and each is an engineering masterpiece. The glass, the metal milling and the smooth operation feel just right, as lenses should. Solid, well made, compact and quality sum them up rather well.
Using the Quenox adapter with in-built lens for M42 to Nikon F-Mount with Mamiya SX AUTO lenses provides some interesting results. Both in colour saturation and bokeh. In this video there are 3 sample pictures for each of the 28mm f 2.8 and the 105mm f 2.8 Mamiya SX Auto lenses. I just wanted to
Nikkor-Q 135mm f 3.5 (Converted) – The following are sample pictures from the lens in various conditions. This, in my opinion, is the best lens I have and it cost only €49 second-hand. As usual the images are direct from camera, no crop, adjustment etc., Only exception is the blur for a surfer’s face… Alex.,
Older lenses actually give more information about their properties than modern lenses. This can give a photographer more control and increase photographic opportunities… In this video I show some of the differences and the advantages. Enjoy Alex.,
