    Help Identify This Nikon Lens

    Hi Apug, Was watching a documentary and was curious as to what lens the photographer in it was using. I Was wondering if anyone could identify the lens from some pictures.








    Those are just about the clearest shots of the lens in question, Thanks in advance!
    Minolta X-700, Nikon FM3A, Mamiya RB67 PRO-S

    From its bulk, and the shape of the (proper-ish?) hood I'd say 35mm f/1.4. Can't help with cam...ooops, coffee just finished
    I photograph things to see what things look like photographed.

    I'd say it's a FM2.

    Agreed. It's got the ISO window on the shutter speed dial (the FE2 doesn't), and it has a 1/4000s shutter speed (so it can't be an FM).

    I am officially changing my guess from the 55/2.8 macro to agree with s-a and say its the 35/1.4 too. The rings of knurls on the rubber focusing ring are 4 deep like the 35/1.4 not 3 like the 55/2.8 macro. I also believe I can just make out what looks like 1.4 on the lens in the photo he's taking of the aquarium fish in the second photo. So this one: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/35f14ais.htm

    Could be. I think he'd use a different hood though and that second photo would be quite the close up, can the 85 focus that close?
