Just got this 2 days ago!!!
Already finished a roll of tri-x yesterday. Waiting for a chance to develop and see that the camera speeds are ok. Already checked the lens on the M240 with adapter and it is a beauty even wide open!

Trying this combo for the first time. Running some HP5 at the moment, but will most likely try some color after.
Just got the lens back from CLA, so it will be interesting to see the results this time around.

Its beautiful! I am afraid to use my reissue case. It came new, unused, with my black 2000 S3. Its just too pretty and valuable in my eyes haha. I'd rather use a unique one of a kind Zhou case he sent me that fits the S3 perfectly.

The problem is, they do not come cheap and there are almost NO junks available for me to find and fix. Hoping to be a productive part of the group.

For people who know me from online or read my blog, please say hi! Ric.
Hey Ric,

Didn't make the connection that you were the one doing the Classic Nikon Maintenance Blog. What a valuable resource. Thank you for doing it. Has helped me service a number of lenses for my rangefinders.

Best,
-Tim

Finally I've found an early All black Nikkor 50mm f/1.4.

As you can read in the books by Bob Rotoloni, these are rather special light weight lenses. These "early black" lenses weigh one third less than the normally produced lenses. The first series is from 1953, before the appearance of the black Nikon S2, about 400 pieces. At that time the Nikon S was produced. The black Nikon S is extremely rare, only a few were made, so why the early all black Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 was made? Only because of the lower weight?

It looks nice on the black Nikon S2 however.

Erik.

In the winter i got a Voigtlander SL15mm for super cheap, of course it had to be adapted to my SP2005. Finally i got the adapter from Amedeo. Very nice adapter!

It’s the Voigtlander zoomfinder. Covers 15-35mm. Quite nice.
