Help Desk / Re: Doubled subscription fee
« Last post by Akira on Today at 23:32:43 »
Ann, thank you for sharing your experience and thoughts.

Although the doubled subscription fee doesn't seem to be caused by the insecurity of NG, I'm also concerned about the issue.

I found that the automatic subscription of NG in my PayPal account was checked and I forgot about that and renewed the subscription manually, which seems to have caused the problem.

I unchecked the automatic renewal of the subscription.  I confirmed that my NG Supporter status will be kept for two years (until 2021), so the problem is practically solved.

What the Nerds Do / Re: New-Nikkor 135/2!!!

You are absolutely right! However it is AI, not an AI converted "New Nikkor" (K).  It is not the first time I have seen native AI lenses with K serial numbers.
- the focus grip is like an AI lens, the grip on the K version is more finely divided, and slightly darker/glossier
- it has the maximum aperture index post, at about 6:30 o'clock on this image. Only AI lenses have this:

Roland, thank you for the details.  If I understand correctly, the function of the aperture index post is rather an afterthought.  It was originally added to the aperture ring to interlock with the EE control unit DS-12 for F2AS.

The ser. No. 179161 suggests that it could be one of the very late K version converted with the appropriate Ai kit.  According to your website.  ::)

This brickwall represents the current chaotic situation of Japan...

The age of biology is coming, civilisation can now perceive itself as an ecosystem within ecosystems containing ecosystems. It is OK, Akira. We all are Biology. Origin unknown, path after death unknown but our bodies are sure recycled, made from recycled (plant-, animal-, mushroom-, bacteria- ...) bodies before us and on our plates ... so ... here we go, moss eating concrete, city body in decomposition, very nice!!!
