Excellent MF lens

  • Summary: I collect old manual focus lenses and already have a sharp, old 300mm f4.5 nikon kogatsu lens. The lens in the present review is newer, but was beat up with scratches on the objective lens and other signs of heavy use. The price was relatively low so I bid. Despite the scratches, the images are quite sharp on my Canon 7D using an $8 Nikkor - EOS adapter. I suspect there is a minor loss of contrast because of the scratches but will have to perform more detailed tests vs.

Great value for the money.

  • Summary: Like many Nikkor lenses of this era (this instance is from 1965), the Nikkor-P 300mm f4.5 is big, heavy and cumbersome. Compared to the Miranda 300mm f4 of the similar vintage, which I have, the Nikkor is longer and more heavy. However, the image quality is great and mounted on a tripod and with a Micro 4/3 body "mounted" on the lens it works just fine as a manual-focus lens. I took some great photos of the full moon, and of a family member's graduation with this lens.

  • Summary: This Lens fits My D1, D1h,D1X Camera Bodies. The Lens I bought may not be Non AI. This Lens does have the small secondary F stops indicative of AI. This is a VERY sharp Lens.I have used this Lens with a 7 Element Doubler (2X Converter). There is no sharpness loss in many shots. The Lens has enough weight to help stabilize (hold steady) when the shutter trips. The weight also provides a sort of ballast (resistance) against any shutter vibration.
