Shown below is the older version of the 200mm Medical Nikkor f5.6 attached on a F2A.
Original design concept was based on easy to use by unskilled personnels - after all, this lens was primarily use by industrial, scienticfic, dental and medical applications - thus, you can't expect all the executing staffs to be an photographic expert. It uses either AC or DC power packs, supplied with 6 screw-in auxiliary lenses, sync and power cord. Providing 11 sets reproduction ratios ranging from 1/15 x down to 3x life size. And 4 pilot lamps incorporated for focusing accuracy. Focusing distance is fixed once the reproduction ratio is determined.
Believed to be the first version. Mounted on the Nikon F body (Can any guru confirm this ? I am not sure...). More info on these older versions
