(Nippon Kogaku) Nikkor 3.5cm f2.5 LTM version

As i sold away my Nikon S2 setup, i kept this little nikkor lens in my dry cabinet. Yes, its a LTM version and one lens that i am reluctant to let go. It served my lust for a separate nikkor setup and still provide one of the very best image quality.

I bought this lens in September 2011 but i could not find an entry on this lens in my archival...
As far as i know, this little lens has the same optical spec as the S mount version. As per kenrockwell described, its a 6 elements in 4 groups, symmetrical design with two cemented doublets on each side of the diaphragm, 2 additional single elements in front and back. 8 reversed curved blades

Fit on my leica M2, its tiny..its light and its not easy to change its aperture...


Talk about its performance, its an amazing lens with superb IQ

While going thru my dry cabinet, i found this lens in one corner and took it with me to SEA aquarium and in low light condition, i shoot mainly wide open at f2.5.

Ask me if i will sell away this lens? Definitely no! At a fraction of most lenses price..this lens display a true character for itself. Sharp, high contrast and great tones especially for B&W film shots...
