Item Description
Hi Everyone,

For sale is my Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 Ai-s manual focus lens, which has been permanently adapted to Pentax K-mount by our very own PF member augustmoon. It focuses perfectly to infinity. This lens behaves just like an adapted M42 lens--you can use Av mode and the camera will meter normally without having to use the green button; however, the viewfinder gets darker when you stop down. It's extremely sharp and utilizes Nikon's CRC technology to achieve a minimum focus distance of just 1 foot. Like all Nikkor (non-Series E) manual focus lenses it's all metal with a very sturdy build—you'll be reminded of your Pentax-K primes for sure. This particular lens is in great shape—clean glass, very good body cosmetics, smooth focus.

Legendary Nikon lens reviewer Bjorn Rorslett rates it quite highly:

QuoteQuote:
Nikon released its major achievement, CRC (Close Range Correction) with this lens in 1968 and it got a well-deserved popularity in the years afterwards. [...] It gives very sharp images corner-to-corner even at the near limit thanks to CRC, but beware of field curvature if you are shooting perfectly flat subjects at close range. Some light fall-off towards the corners is evident at f/2.8 (ed. note: on FX) and gone by f/4-f/5.6. [...] The 24/2.8 MF Nikkor is a classic lens in the Nikon line and one that remains a dependable workhorse to this day.

Does it have to be used with stop metering? i.e adjust the focus with full open aperture and then stop down to desired aperture and take picture?

You can do it that way, but I find it generally bright enough to focus with stopped down to f/8 or so, which is about as far as you'd want to go to avoid diffraction. Basically, it behaves like any other fully manual Pentax lens.

PM sent.

Also, I need to get into the ballgame here as Iīm serously interested in the lens: If the lens works just like a K or M series lens with metering with the green button sequence in M-mode, how do you stop it down? I assume you mean stopping down like with a M42 lens or anything that doesnīt have the aperture lever coupling with the camera body? I see it does have the aperture lever, thatīs why my question. Hope itīs not too stupid.

Thanks,

Mats

That's a good point... I was under the impression that with M and K lenses the aperture stayed stopped down, but I guess it only stops down when you meter or take the shot. I'll mount the 24 when I get home this evening and see for sure how it behaves.

Ok, so after some testing it appears that the lens behaves like a screwmount lens, not a K- or M-type lens. This has both up and down sides:

Good: You can shoot in Av mode since the blades are always stopped down to the desired aperture. No green button metering necessary!
Bad: Viewfinder gets darker when you stop down. (But you can frame wide open and stop down before shooting.)

Thanks for asking the questions to make me clear this up. It'd been a while since I used this lens and it seems my memory was faulty.
