Nippon Kogaku Nikkor-S-C 1:1.4 f=5cm

f1.4, 1/320th sec, ISO 100

An historic lens even if its not the absolute sharpest or lowest in aberrations ever made.

This was the first commercially sold f1.4 aperture lens for 35mm format.

Still produces a beautiful pic in its own right and what some might call deficiencies can actually

be used in very pleasing ways, such as this image I think!

Here's the Nippon Kogaku Nikkor-S-C 1:1.4 f=5cm lens mounted on my nice Nikon SP Rangefinder

And here's the secret sauce! 

The silver part, is a custom made adapter and its mounted on a commercially made adapter. 

The silver part is extracted from an S mount rangefinder camera and this is the S mount mechanism portion. It's then threaded on the rear (bottom here) with L39/LTM compatible threads so it can screw into a standard L39/LTM to Sony E/NEX Mount adapter (the black part on the bottom). This custom adapter is crafted and sold by 'kosbik84' on ebay. He's from Kiev in the Ukraine. He then sells it at a very reasonable price I think. Its the only way possible I know of to be able to use any of the old S Mount Rangefinder lenses on my Sony A7RII. Not only did he sell it at a reasonable price, he also threw in an S Mount Russian lens with the deal.It was in ok condition too and I've already taken some pics with it as well.

Yahoo ... winner winner chicken dinner. Hmmm, is that copyright infringement??
