A fun thread to see what folks have done to rebirth old lenses which require a conversion to be used on modern Nikon bodies. I asked John White in Ann Arbor, Michigan to convert two of the four I have. A NIKKOR-H Auto 1:1.8 f=85mm, and a NIKKOR-P Auto 1:4.5 f=300mm. The conversion is done on a milling machine and once completed it appears the lens was manufactured as seen. John does a nice job as one would expect from a retired automotive engineer.
So, one from the 85mm, before I even cleaned the old filter on the front which was horribly dirty.
Please: if you want to post a photo, let's try to post only one at a time. Then we can discuss each example. And, at first, we will see if anyone else has some of the pre 1977 lenses, then expand as necessary. I will get the 300mm up some time soon.
Oh, yes, the Exif data shows an f/1.0 lens...LOL I think this was at f/8.
