    I want one those for slide copying. I bought a step-up ring to use an El-Nikkor for that purpose, only to discover the filter threads on the lens were completely f***ed. I've had that El for years but never thought to look at the front thread!

    Rumor has it the 55/2.8 is extremely sharp all the way out to infinity, would you concur?

    I've heard the same which is why I'm interested in it. I'll track one down eventually.

    +1. The 55mm/F2.8 Ais is a permanent resident in my backpack, along with the PK11-13 rings. The lens, as many have suggested, does just as well for 35mm landscape/nature work as it does for the "micro" shooting for which it was intended (?). Unless I know in advance that I will need the extra speed, oftentimes, I leave the 50mm/F1.2 Ais at home...
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Funny how things work out, there's a 55 f/2.8 on its way to me.

    'grats... Will probably be replacing the one shown on my F4 with a nicer copy. Yeah, I know it's my original 55 micro, but it's well-worn, so it's time to get one that's in better shape.
