All about the Ai Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5











Each Micro-Nikkor offers a minimum aperture of f/32 to permit maximum depth-of-field - a particular advantage in close-up photographs. Because of its outstanding optical quality and focal length, the 55mm f/3.5 Micro-Nikkor is ideal for critical copying of flat subjects such as documents, color transparencies, stamps, coins, etc., or for close-ups of insects, flowers and other small subjects. It is also frequently used as a normal lens for candid, landscape and other general purposes. This lens does not usually require a lens hood as the optics are deeply recessed and effectively protected from stray light...Extensive Info at this Everything Older Nikon.....Here

Have you tried D40/60 with a 45mm f/2.8P attached?Everything works nice! (except AF, of course) and it's a terrific tiny piece of kit...
