Greetings from Oslo, Norway
« on: January 25, 2020, 00:04:32 »
Hello,
I have been lurking for a while. I am getting into photography again after a number of years without a proper camera. I am using a Panasonic gx80 and bought a Nikkor-p 105 mm f/2.5 on a whim. What a wonderful piece of optomechanics! And I appreciate how manual focus and aperture slows down the process of photography. I have subsequently bought a few more vintage Nikkors, all in near mint condition: A 85 mm f/1.8 K, Nikkor-H 300mm f/4.5 and in the mail a Nikkor-S 5cm f/2. These will be used with either a plain K&F F-mount/m43 adapter or a Viltrox 0.71x power booster.

The stabilized image sensor in combination with focus peaking and EVF with 10x magnification makes focusing quite easy.

And who knows, I may eventually get a matching full frame body - film and or/digital.

Cheers,
Harald

Welcome Harald!  The 105/2.5 is a legend on this forum as you will find.  Just wait until you get to experience it at the proper focal length without being wrangled through conversion elements! ;)

Thanks for the welcome!
Well, whaddyaknow, just today when I picked up my Nikkor-S 5cm f/2 in the mail, I also happened to buy locally a Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5. It is such a joy to use. Lovely lens!

Cheers!
