    FS: Nikon Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 lens in box, PK-3 Auto Ring

    In lovely condition, a Nikon manual-focus Micro-Nikkor macro lens, 55mm f/3.5 with the PK-3 Auto Ring coupled to meter and diaphragm. The lens serial number is a hoot: 888883. In the original box with the original soft foam, lens manual, manual Nikon Close-Up equipment brochure, and the dealer's and customer's copies of the warranty registration. The lens has both caps, the glass is spotless aside from a couple of specs of dust, and the lens barrel is excellent as well. The rear cap has a few scratches. From what I read, the PK-3 extension allows this lens to magnify up to 1:1 and couples with the camera's meter and diaphragm, eliminating tiresome exposure calculations. Finally, I'm pretty sure this isn't an AI lens. Frankly, all my 35mm gear is Minolta and I'd like to have a nice macro lens: how come my wife only finds Nikon macro lenses? It doesn't seem fair, some how...

    Anyway, I'd like to get $80 for the lens with it's PK-3 widget, plus shipping. I take Paypal and USPS (United States Postal Service ONLY!) money orders. I contribute to APUG. Thanks for looking, now go find something small to take pictures of!

    Anyone interested in this before it goes to another venue?

    This is a "K" version (pre Ai) of the 3.5- 55mm Micro (most likely from 1975) just before the lens was updated to Ai.
    After the Ai version the lens was updated to a 2.8 max aperture.

    The 55 micro in all it's iterations is considered on of the sharped Nikkors and certainly one of the sharpest around normal fl.
    Nice price for this also I am tempted.

    Did it go to ePrey yet?

    Wow. These are great lenses, I have the version just before this and use it quite a bit as a standard macro lens. The deeply recessed front element makes it sort of self-shading. I paid this much for mine 13 or 14 years ago, with the bubble, and thought I was doing well - this one's a friggin' steal!

    I haven't moved the listing yet but will soon if no one here wants it.
