Tribute to an oldie, a cheapie,a simpleton, but a goodie!

Nice little lens. I have its Nikon counterpart, a Micro-Nikkor AUTO 55mm f3.5. Oddly enough, they state 220 grams for your lens here:

My Nikkor is a bit heavier, at 235 grams. Also less compact, with an even more recessed front element. It has 5 elements in 3 groups, and it has 6 aperture blades (against 5). Also 1:2 macro, but has its own extension tube ("M") which brings it to 1:1. Pentax probably had an extension tube especially to bring this 50mm f4 to 1:1 too?

 

I also had a Micro-Nikkor 55mm f2.8 Ai-S, but gave it to a friend who can use it for macro and portrait stuff or whatever she can think of.

 

Do you have more images to show which you took with that little gem?

 

ps. on old cheap lenses, I just received an old Nikkor 135mm f2.8 "K"-version for which I paid €55.
