Thanks Johan. The 135 f2 is one of my "someday" lenses. I've heard about them for years, and someday I'll own one.

I have never used my Nikons III underwater but when I need to shoot in bad weather, I rely on its waterproof watertight body that is capable of withstanding depths of 50 meters (160 feet).

I also rely on the 35mm wide-angle lens and the 80mm telephoto lens because both lenses can be used under and above water.

Somewhat battered SP with a Zeiss 35mm f3.5 on it. I made January into a Nikon Rf compatible 35mm lenses and shot my way through a variety of 35's and Rf bodies. Just another "project" with no particular reason - just for fun.

Meet the F-family, from top left to right

Nikon F100 & 35mm f/2 af-d - fantastic af camera, light setup with this lens
Nikon F5 & 28mm f/1.8G - first choice (camera) for outdoor shots
Nikon F65 & 28-80mm kit lens - collecting dust
Nikon F2 & 24mm f/2.8 - my favorite camera and lens at the moment
Nikon F & 35mm f/2.8 - also a favorite camera and lens, so classic
Nikkormat FT2 & 50mm f/2 - pure fun to use, when I use it
Nikon FE & 35mm f/1.4 - beautiful and light camera, I use a 35mm f/2.5 E lens when I want a very light setup
Nikon FE2 & 105mm f/2.5 - my first film camera, sentimental and a very good camera, great with the 105

New to me 50mm Nikkor S Auto. She's found a new home on my F. Seems to be happy there.

Lovely combo Tom, especially the lens. How do you like the 35mm Planar? (from the post-War Zeiss lenses I have only the Biogon 21mm)

Finally I have a Viewfinder for my Nikon F2!!
A Standard "DP-1", though the meter is erratic...
That's OK, I have a light meter, and I am well versed in the "Sunny 16" guidelines.
The Nikon F2 is still considered the best manual 35mm SLR camera ever made, even after 45 years since it's introduction in 1971.

[IMG]More Nikon Rf gear for March 2016 by T&T and Mr B Abrahamsson, on Flickr[/IMG]

Another set for Nikon Rf Month, my two wide Heliars in Nikon F mount. Adapts well to the S2 with the Voigtlander F-S adapter. Uncoupled - but with either 12 or 15 mm focal length - the depth of field is more than enough to cover up mistakes.
Shot with my Sony A7, Metabone F adapter and the incomparable Zeiss ZF Macro Planar 50mm f2.0

Battered Nippon Kogaku Nikon F SN64XXXX, perfectly working after a complete restoration (by me ) with NAI 24/2.8

And an odd couple: Nikon F3AF with AF-Nikkor 80/2.8 and an old S2 with the S-C 50/1.4:
