Greetings

I've got an M6 TTL and just recently acquired an M3 DS. Many years ago I bought a 8.5 cm Nikkor 2.0 with a Contax mount. I didn't know the significance of the "C" on the barrel at the...

My personal "holy grail" was originally a Nikon F (plain prism variety). Ideally it would be black. However, I've got a chrome one and I'm very happy with it. Later, it was an M3, but I got an SP...

Enjoy Dave,
That is why I still have my SP I got in 1972. I've got a VC 35/2.5 on it, and it's great!
I do like my D200, however. Perhaps a D3 next year.
Cheers

Hi.

I don't own an M8 (at least not yet, one can always hope), but I have 2 CV lenses: 35mm 2.5 on my Nikon SP and 50mm 1.5 on my M6. Both are great lenses, with the 35 being one of the best lenses...

On my D200, my widest is 18-35, which also fits the F100. However, 18mm is too wide for me on the F100. On the M6 and SP, I've got 35mm. I'm sort of a narrow focus person.
