    Looks like it could be an early 35/1.4 with the metal screw in hood, mine looks very similar. Or a 35/2 or a 50/2.

    I believe that that was my error. That is the focus ring. Old Nikon lenses could be focused with one finger. Newer ones cannot. I just tested 2 old and 2 new lenses and could focus the old ones with my index finger. The older zoom lenses could be zoomed with one finger as well.

    I don't think it's big enough for the 35/1.4; when was that introduced anyway? The 35/2 has the lettering on the outside of the filter ring, so definitely not that. So, 35/2.8 or 50/2.

    With any of my 60s Nikkors that have been relubricated, I do.

    Lens is a Nikkor-S 35/2.8... With respect to using an index finger to focus, just tested that theory. The only Nikkor I can't easily focus that way is my 85/1.8. Mainly because of the grease being a bit coagulated. My 55/2.8 is as easy to focus as my 50/1.4 Nikkor-S. So, it can be done with post 1973 Nikkor lenses with the rubber grip.

    the older Nikon manuals such as the one for the FMand FE show how the camera should be held. now, that I only have one functional hand left.I prefer the heavy mass of the D800so I can shoot single handedly.

    I prefer a heavier camera body. I have never used an autofocus or auto everything 35mm slr camera. All mine are manual focus and manual exposure. I have used an auto exposure F3 and was very satisfied with the results. But, for critical exposures, I still bracketed. My absolute best technical work was using the F3 and 55mm Micro Nikkor to shoot slides that were projected to be 6 ft tall. Ektachrome 64T, over or under 1 stop (don't recall), unreal detail.

    I used my MicroNikkor on my daughters Dsomething and was quite surprised. First, the camera was lighter than the lens. Second, once I zoomed in on the exposure the results were passable.

    I seem to recall Nikon in an ad mentioning how the mass of its cameras helps steady them. An oblique slap at Olympus, I thought, who had mountaineer Sir Christian Bonington shilling for them in ads that made a deal of the light weight of the Olympus cameras. (Glad the weight works for you.)
