View Full Version : W-Nikkor 3.5CM F3.5 in LTM
First time poster here. I recently acquired one of these tiny little lenses. Has anyone ever used one? Can anyone steer me towards any reviews or articles regarding this lens? I need basic 411, such as number of elements/groups etc.
The version I own lacks click stops for the F stops. Was this common on older lenses?
At one time many -- perhaps most -- lenses did not have click stops for the aperture control.
Most of the early Nikkor lenses didn't have click stops, especially the heavy chrome on brass lenses. The later black aluminium came with click stops.
I won one of these last night in Nikon S-mount. I'm looking forward to receiving it.
The optical formula of the LTM version is the same - 4 elements in 3 groups. Take a look at the link below.
I've got the 35mm 2.5 Nikkor for LTM. It's a nice lens with surprisingly good contrast. I hear the 3.5 isn't quite as sharp. Stopped down, I'm sure it'll be fine, likely comparable to a Summaron.
