Hi!

I just won a Nikkor-H 2.0/50 for Euro 6,-! Very Happy
Now, I cross my fingers that this lens is really in good condition.

The lens arrived today. That was really quick! I will add this seller to my favs.
Lens is much better than described, just some minor colour loss at the front barrel, glass is pristine, aperture works perfectly and focus ring is easily turning (even a little too easy for my personal taste, but it doesn't turn by itself Wink).

So, really a bargain! Very Happy

6 Euros for a Nik lens!!!! You are very lucky Carsten.

Usually you can get only a front cap for this price. Very Happy

I told you one of the sharpest or not the sharpest Nikkor lens and the most underrated too.

Yes, sharp and a very pleasant bokeh - some rare combination!

Yes, the 2/50 is an excellent lens. I couldn't keep my copy because I had too many 50mm Nikkors. But surely it's a keeper.

That's what Mike Johnston wrote (in his essay The Empirical Photographer) about this lens:

Getting lost in the haze of the passing years is a truth that only grizzled old Nikon vets remember any more: that this was one of the sharpest and best lenses in Nikon's history, a paragon in every way. It's a tough little billet of metal with a reassuring solidity; its recessed front element is well protected even without a lens shade, and you can take comfort in knowing the lens will take some hard knocks and continue to serve faithfully. It's razor sharp like the new lens, sometimes seeming to exaggerate edge effects to the point of unnaturalness; it's very contrasty at wider apertures, with that almost 3D look so many photographers crave; yet it's not harsh tonally as the newer lenses (take the same picture with the old and the new lens side-by-side and you'll see what I mean by this). As a bonus, its closeup performance is particularly good -- slap it on a bellows, and voil?, it's a macro lens.

Not bad for a 6 euros lens! I paid quite more for my multicoated HC copy but I consider it a bargain anyway.

Cheers!
