Nikon Nikkor-S 50/2 transitional model (rare)

Asking Price

Item Location
Prague, Czech Republic (EU)

Item Description
From my Nikon days I still have one last lens in my "collection". It is the somehow rare transitional Nikkor-S 50mm f/2.0 lens with earlier 9-bladed aperture (cca 1960-61). The lens is in excellent condition with original vintage Nikon caps and suitable Nikon lens hood.

This lens is same as the earliest "tick-mark" Nikon F lenses sans the tick marks. But the lens still have 9-bladed aperture compared to the later 6-bladed variant of Nikkor-S 50/2, which was very shortly replaced with cheaper and simpler Nikkor-H 50/2.

This Nikkor-S 50/2 would be mostly appreciated by Nikon F collectors and enthusiasts, it mates well with early 1960 64xxxxx Nikon F camera bodies. Image-wise the early Nikkor-S 50/2 is the best 50mm from Nikon ever made, somehow similar to Leica Summicron 50/2 in the general image appearance and feel (contrast, "roundness", dimensionality...).

Condition of this lens is excellent, focusing is light and smooth, aperture precise, dry and snappy. Optics is clean, MC layers with no blemishes.

I would prefer to trade this lens for either 58mm Takumar M42mm lens (58/2.0, 58/2.4) or early 8-element Super Takumar 50/1.4 or for some other interesting M42 lens.
