I took out the Nikon FG I have 'taken over ' from my Wife, loaded with some short length of very old 1995 dated Kodak P3200 film --I rated it at 400 ASA and processed for 9 mins @ 20.C in my Home-made Microphen formula -- there was a
'Fog Level' as expected but OK to see the lens results under a x6 maginifier -- one I took at full aperture on the 50mm f1.8 Nikkor was not successful -- not focused accurately. The 28mm and 105mm lenses look good on these tests. My Wife got some 'back focus' problems with the 105mm f2.5 Nikkor but kt may have been her eyesight.
28mm f3.5 Nikkor at f8

28mm f3.5 Nikkor at f5.6

105mm f2.5 Nikkor at full aperture

105mm f2.5 Nikkor at f4

Some more later on better finer-grained film --
