    WTS - Nikkor SC 50mm f1.4 (LTM) sonnar

    For sale here is a beautiful copy of the Nippon Kogaku Japan Nikkor SC 50mm f1.4 in leica screw mount (LTM). Lens comes with nicca cap, nicca 43mm UV filter, black hood (marked *EP*) and a rear lens cap. Serial # 341xxx. Pics to follow...

    Lens is great condition. Glass is clean, no fungus, no haze, no oil. Aperture ring clicks nicely at every stop and focus ring is smooth. Optically, one of the cleanest vintage lenses I have ever owned. Lovely "glow" wide open and the usual crisp sharp images when stopped down.

    I'm asking US$1100 paypal'ed and shipped worldwide from Singapore with tracking. Any questions, please PM or email me at 1newghost at gmail dot com. Thanks for looking!

    What a beautiful lens in such great condition! These in LTM are hard to come by these days. Are all these Nikkor 5cm f/1.4 Sonnar design? I thought just the f/1.5 was... GLWS.

    I am going to answer for the OP-

    All of the Nikkor-S 5cm F1.4 lenses in Leica Mount are Sonnar formula lenses, 7 elements in 3 groups. The F1.5 lens is rare, only a couple hundred made. The F1.4 lens is considered to be sharper.

    Most of the 5cm f1.4 lenses in S-Mount are Sonnar formula, in 1964 Nikon changed the design to one based on a Planar formula. That design was re-introduced with the Nikon S3-2000.

    Are you considering, to split and sell the lens hood separately, to have it fitted to my Nikkor-S.C 5cm 1.4 :roll eyes:


    I would love, to have a complete set, as I absolutely adore this lens!
