I have a extension tube that fits on my micro-nikkor 55mm f3.5 lens. It has an M2 on the side. Can someone tell me what the tube is used for on the lens?

Hi, i have an old Nikon F (1970) wint some "pre-AI" lenses: micro nikkor 55mm f:3.5; 300mm f:4.5; 135mm f:2.8; 35mm f:2. I would like to know if some of theese lenses may be used in manual mode only on a digital Nikon D50 without damaging the camera body. The lens mount is the same, but i don't know if the electronic plugs into the digital body may be damaged by the old lenses.

Hi Nigel: I'm not sure what you've got. I seem to recall that Nikon F's sold in Germany at one time were marked "Nikkor" instead of "Nikon" due to a trademark dispute. Maybe a conflict with Zeiss Ikon over the similarity of the names? I don't remember now.

Hi Gene: I'm not very familiar with the digital and AF models, but: generally speaking, you do not want to use FTn-era, Non-AI lenses on later, AI cameras. The camera's meter will not know what aperture the lens is set on, so at best you can only meter with the lens stopped down; but worse, in many cases, the flange at the back of the Non-AI lenses is too long and can damage the camera body when you mount the lens. If you were to try this combination, I think it would take no time at all before you decide that the inconvenience and risk is not worth the savings you gain from trying to use the older lenses.

I am trying to determine if any of my early Nikkor lenses (nonAF) used with my FTn metering system can be used with the Nikon D70 digital camera? Many thanks.

I have a Nikon F body ( I think ) marked "Nikkor" on the top plate, front right between flash indicator and winder. What is it? Any info would be welcome.

Hi Tony: Early Nikon mount teleconverters had pins and forks to couple the meter to the lens. Really early ones, from before the TTL Photomic meters, had an offset pin on the front to correct for the 2-stop aperture shift! I've also had one with auto diaphragm but no aperture coupling... that one was kind of a pain.

Before AI-AIS camera bodies, F's F2's, the PK rings as well as TC converters were used only in stop down mode? Or, were there prongs to link up with Photomic meters on mentioned converters & rings?

I have a NIKON F FTN with a 69 SN in near mint condition. It has the Nippon Kokagu 55mm 1:1.4 lens. I am thinking about selling it. I would not consider any price less than $400.00. If interested, send a email.
