This site will always be under construction
As I am NOT good at content writing and always have to struggle to write better as well as type efficiently with two fingers;
As this site is not created for me, but in time - for
ALL to share basic information for any discontinued products from Nikon. So, those of you who may have the specific skill in these areas (patching my weak writings, user experience and images for the lenses), you are always welcome to drop me a line.

No doubt about it - I have just found out a fact that I am actually one of the most lazy guy on earth.... But as creating a resource site with reasonably good content can be a very tedious process (simply based on my personal experience with the earlier MF-Nikkor Resources site which actually took me 3 months to get it ready (except for the most confusing 50mm standard lenses). So, it is like you are looking for reasons to delay something that ought to be done. But actually the main problem is, I still have not compiled enough of materials to begin as the numerous updates/upgrades of AF-Nikkor made life very difficult for me to source proper images of the related versions of lenses. Well, it can also be a joke where now, the both AF-based Nikon Pro models of Nikon F4 and Nikon F5 sites were already but the most important aspect of the lenses are not ready huh ?. So, may be some of you can make use of the AF-Micro-Nikkor lenses as a starting point where all the AF-Micro optic have already been addressed.

Lastly, can anyone kind enough to consider taking some good images of their own AF-Nikkor (scanned the manual if possible) in speeding up this info compilation process ?
