Nikon 5cm (50mm) f/3.5 MICRO-NIKKOR

(1956-1964)

5 elements in 4 groups

7-blade diaphragm, click stops to f/22

focus to 3 feet, mount extended

focus to 1.5 feet, mount collapsed

34.5mm or Series VI filters

Few people were silly enough to buy this lens when it was new because it was slow, and no sane person attempted close-up photogrpahy with a rangefinder camera. Since few people bought it, few were sold, making it a collectors' item today.

Help me help you         top

I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links to Adorama, Amazon, eBay, B&H, Ritz, Calumet, J&R and ScanCafe when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

If you find this page as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.

Thanks for reading!

 

 

Mr. & Mrs. Ken Rockwell, Ryan and Katie.
