    Nikon's RF cameras used the Contax mount. So the Nikon lenses would fit on the Contax cameras - but IIRC the flange distance was slightly different, the Nikkors had to be shimmed/adjusted to track properly with the Contax rangefinder and vice versa. You can put a Nikkor on a Kiev, too.

    Steve.
    Pre WWII they made them for Hansa Canon!

    Nikon's Rifle scopes are some of the best available. In some cases, surpassing Leupold.

    Nikon made lenses specifically for the Contax rangefinder tracking (as suggested earlier) they looked like they were for the Nikon but had a C engraved on them rare if you were a collector eg only 3883 in 85mm.

    If you shoot the Kiev 85 is pretty good and cheap
