And, by the way, it was this very thread got me into the 2005 SP / 35mm f/1.8 set. Thanks Cal for showing me the negatives from his LTM version of the lens, it's comforting to see after such a significant cash outlay for the set. Will post some photos later to share. _John

John your 2005 SP with 35/1.8 was a sweet treat at the last NYC Meet-Up. What a great lens.

Another one with the 35f1.8. This is a visually quite interesting area, close to the cruise ship terminal and the new (and expensive) conference center here in Vancouver. A deep "pit" with the water fall and sloping lawns and hedges.

I just made even rarer version of the lens. I shimmed S-mount one to work on my Contax IIa. Film is still in the camera. Hope to finish it soon and look at the results.

Beautiful shot Richard! I love the glow around the lights, while the lens still retains plenty of detail (very different from the later Leica 35 Summilux).

Dirk, interesting that you noticed that. I got the 35 summilux before the Nikkor and now like the Nikkor better for the smaller size, rendering, and even though it's a bit slower still does as well with night shots.

Yes Richard, I am on a several years ongoing journey on finding the perfect fast 35mm lens - I had tried them all except a few exotics, I have on my list.

The few hours, I only have so far with the 35/1.8 W-Nikkor really impressed me a lot. This lens is truly special! I didn't have a night shoot with mine yet, but I will change that soon.

Dirk,

Hopefully at the next NYC Meet-Up I can get Klaus to do a few shots using my 35/1.8 Nikkor in LTM on his MM.

I think the Nikkor is a magic lens. I think the amount of midrange on overcast or rainy days is mucho detailed.

Plus one.

BTW the Thoriated glass on my Nikkor is slightly yellowed. Although single coated for vast midrange it still has this punchy contrast like in your image above. John (JSRockit) above reports a slight yellow cast on color shots on a M9.

Thanks Cal and John!

I am already in love with that lens!

Cal if you plan, to get a Mono, I strongly suggest you try this lens out on one - the detail is simply unbelievable until you have seen the files on the screen and did some prints.

I always read, how everybody loves this lens and found it's rendering in images always beautiful, but that this lens is SO special, I couldn't dream of.

Of course, I am a very fresh owner and enthusiastic, but I would judge, this lens is for me as significant in it's specie character than a Leica 50/1 or a Noct-Nikkor - very, special character and surprisingly very high resolution.

not to mention, how very tiny it is.

Beautiful Richard ... Great Lens indeed
Have to AGREE, similar to the pre asph Lux 35 in Beautiful Glow
but the nikkor handles low lighting Better

Dirk,

In the 50's resolution was the primary design criterion. I say the 35/1.8 is right up there with a modern ASPH lens, but what I think makes this lens so remarkable is the detailed contrast in B&W. It has that richness of a larger format in both contrast and detail.

I'm thinking that on my MM it will be a match made in heaven. Only around 1.5K were made in LTM. I would agree that there is something magic about the 35/1.8.

Richard - great stuff! Keep the night shots coming - I absolutely love that look!
I loved that look already with the pre ASPH Summilux, but the W-Nikkor is a lot more delicate and precise, drawing the night!
I repeat myself here: "If I only had known earlier about this lens …!"

Cal, this is so true! I went just through my first batch of shots from the W-Nikkor - those mid tones are M A S S I V E !
I have not a good hand yet on developing my B&W shots from the Monochrome - I might revert with the Nikkor for a while and shoot with the M8 and M9, which are a lot easier cameras in this respect.

There are two versions of the lens, ltm and Nikon bayonet. You can use the ltm-version plus a normal adapter on your M. The ltm-version is however rare.
I guess you can use the Nikon bayonet-version via an Amadeo-adapter on your M.

Helen,

I own one of the LTM versions, and I use it with a version 1 CV LTM to M-mount adapter. I believe these adapters from CV that are specially made for use with LTM lenses with infinity locks are no longer available, but I had the wisdom to buy a spare. I literally bought the last two at Photo Village when they were still available. If you need an adapter I have one for you.

Realize that only about 1,500 35/1.8's were ever made in LTM and that they are rare. I paid $1.7K for mine, but this is cheap compared to a 35 Cron V1. The 35 Cron close focuses closer, but the Nikkor is faster at 1.8.

BTW wide open the Nikkor can display this wonderful glow of veiling flare that is absolutely dreamy and wonderful under bright-bright conditions, but on wet rainy overcast days the contrast and midrange detail looks like a larger format in the form of mucho shades of grey.

For the upcoming beauty contest that will be part of the NYC Meet-UP I will be entering a black paint Leica II (Model D) that features chrome knobs and no strap lugs. I will mount the 35/1.8 Nikkor, an extra TA Rapidgrip (LOL), and a Zeiss 25/28 VF'er. Surprisingly the LTM 35/1.8 is rather small and this rig remains small even though I added a huge Rapidgrip. Surprisingly the Rapidgrip looks like it was engineered for the tiny screw mount. Also the framing is easy to image with the 25 and 28 frames present. I know you have a weakness for LTM's. LOL.

BTW John C. has a black paint 2005 SP with the 35/1.8. What a beauty. This camera won last year's top prize in our beauty contest.

If I remember right, the rear element of the S mount version doesn't fit the Amadeo adapter, Erik. There are a couple of custom M modified, Millenium 35/1.8 copies around though.

Cal, for the 35/1.8 a regular LTM adapter will work fine. For the 35/2.5 LTM you need a type I adapter.

Also would like to mention that the 35/2 UC Hexanon is a modern coated copy of the 35/1.8.

The CV hood vignettes, Cal. This is a slightly wider Heavystar hood that works ok with filters.

Helen,
I'm coming back to the area in the next few months (maybe sooner) and you're more than welcome to try out my Nikon RF mount 35mm f/1.8. It WON'T work on a Leica using the Amedeo adapter because of the very large rear element striking the focusing cam follower in the Leica body which gives a false focus. If you're comfortable with scale focusing, it works fine but then that precludes using the lens at its magical f/1.8 aperture.
Cheapest solution would be to find an S2 and a Nikon RF mount lens. A superb combo but the S2 only has the frameline for 50mm. Doesn't work without an accessory finder for me because I wear glasses but I can also fudge the composition and shoot loose with the 35 on the S2 and get fine results.
One thing is that the controls are backwards from Leica so it takes a bit to get used to with regard to focusing. I'm sure the lens and you will make a fantastic pair.

Due to the interest in this lens I thought that you might all be interested in the history of the 3.5cm f1.8 Nikkor.

Erik, through my several years of suffering, looking for this beauty, I learned , that the W-Nikkor 35/1.8 in Nikon S mount doesn't fit on a Amedeo adapter to Leica M due to it's large rear element (but never fondled it, so this info is not confirmed by myself).

Now, that I hold the LTM lens in my hands, I can certainly understand this, as the rear element indeed is … L A R G E ;-)

Helen, you really don't need to splurge for a Nikon S, but in my opinion, it doesn't hurt, to get a nice Nikon S body of any taste + W-Nikkor to hold you over until you find a LTM sample or just fall in love with the S.

Several times over the last years I was so close >< to doing just that.

I am the happiest kid now, that the search and suffering is over …

The W-Nikkor is the bomb - the cluster bomb that is:

… I was late with my post I guess ;-)

Helen, if it helps, to spend more of your money:

When I just couldn't wait it out anymore, my W-Nikkor search brought me through the same comments, mentioned above about the Konica UC-Hexanon.

When I found a nice UC-Hex copy, it immediately became my favourite 35mm lens, and I have used a few - I still love the UC-Hex much, much more over pre ASPH Leica Summilux, Summicron and also the ASPH.

The UC-Hex is all around the nicest 35mm lens for Leica M (it also is a LTM lens, so a wonderful fit on a LTM body as well) +++ it is the nicest black paint finished lens, I have ever used.

Thanks Andy and Erik - too kind ;-)
Take that W-Nikkor out Erik!

I am now hoping, the Walz filters, I ordered find their way to me still this year (US Postal has some serious issues due to Christmas shippings in continental US it seems).
I am also looking for a hood alternative to the beautiful Yama hood, Andy kindly supplied with the lens.
My big sausage fingers seem to always end up shifting the aperture with the little space between lens hood and body (that W-Nikkor is TINY!)

Does anybody know, if Nikon sold a specific lens hood just for the LTM version of this lens (fitting for the 43mm filter thread)?

I suppose, if such a hood really exist, it might be as costly, as the lens itself :~|

Ken Rockwell advises, to get one of the Nikkor 50/1.4 43mm hoods and just use that - any vignetting ?

I used it with a B+W MRC filter and then the hood. The filter seemed to help give a bit more space for fingers. You are right though, it is very tight to adjust aperture with a hood on. It's too bad... The Hama shade looks so nice on this lens

Ahh - that makes sense Andy!
Can you specify more on the B+W filter?
I found, that the currently available B+W 43mm filters don't fit the thread pitch of the Nikkor 43 and Leica 43 filter threads (Summilux v2).

I use a B+W E43 MRC filter of the latest built on my UC-Hex, which would not fully screw onto the 5cm and 3.5cm Nikkor lenses.

The vintage Walz filters, I ordered do have a different 43mm thread, specifically matching the Nikkor lenses.
