    This all part of another nonessential, GAS driven, poorly thought out project of mine.

    I'm still putting together my bargain Nikon kit, my go to lenses with my Pentax and M42 gear are 135mm and 28mm, which I don't have in Nikon.

    I'm looking for first, a really cheap third party 135mm/2.8 (Kiron,Vivitar,Focal, Sears, J.C.Penny,Whatever) Pretty much a situation of the odder the better. I like the look of old glass on B&W. My only requirement is that I'd like to stick with made in Japan.

    Same requirements on a 28mm/2.8.

    Other primes, not sure whats out there in old/MF/odd/cheap.

    Since I didn't/don't need another system and this is just another GAS adventure, I don't have a lot of budget to throw at this.

    I have a Q Nikkor 135 3.5 that's been AI'd if you can live w/ 3.5. Shoot me a message if you're interested. I think I sent you a message on it, but I may have accidentally deleted it! Regards, Steve.

    I have a 135mm 2.8 Quantaray )Sigma glass) w/built-in lens hood in nearly mint cond. that you can have for $25 + post. Oh, and it's AI and takes 52mm filters. The Sigma glass will give you a brilliant neg. It's multi-coated, too.

    Steve,

    As great as that old Nikkor is, 3.5 is kinda slow. Speed is life.

    Thanks though.

    I have a Nikon mount 28mm 2.8. My best guess is it's made by Miida, and it is made in Japan. Glass is good, and the blades look decent, but there is one issue: the nose piece is missing, along with the name ring. There is a 2% chance it's a 24mm, but it seems to have the same AOV as my Canon 28mm, so I'm pretty sure it's a 28mm. If you're at all interested, PM me.
