    Nikkor 5cm F2 Leica Thread Mount (BGN Cond)

    For sale is a Nikkor-H 5cm F2 in Leica Thread Mount, front element has cleaning marks filled in with eye-glass repair kit, cosmetically EX condition. The infinity lock tab has been removed, and the indent for close-focus has been removed. This lens will focus to 18”, but the RF coupling of the Leica will stop at about 2.5ft The front element had cleaning marks when I got it. I diluted the solution from an eye-glass repair kit to fill in the marks, and the performance of the lens was improved. Keep a filter on the lens, blow-clean, use lens-cleaning tissue only. Do not use a wet cleaning solution on the lens. Focus is smooth, aperture is smooth.

    Price: $160 shipped within the United States, $175 anywhere else via First Class International. $190 via International Priority Mail. Paypal, Personal Check, Money Order. ($5 discount for check/money order.) I reserve the right to hold shipment until check/MO clears. Return policy: returns must be made within 10 days, refund for the price of the item will be given after receipt. Postage cost is not refundable. Generic UV Filter and Home-Made rear cap included.

    Front of lens, dead-on with flash to emphasize cleaning marks.

    One Bump for this lens, small offset to the week's spending spree on the Nokton, a Sonnar, and Tanack!

    I forgot to post the wide-open and close-up Fence Post picture.

    THIS Nikkor 5cm f2 wide-open on my M9:





    (Focus point is where the fence slat meets the Post)

    Whatever assumptions that Nikon made for film curvature and flange distance: they were spot-on for the M9. My Nikkor 5cm F1.4, 5cm F2, 10.5cm f2.5 and 8.5cm f2 are perfect on the M9. Need to try the 13.5cm f3.5 on it.
