New Lens Arrival, the Nikkor Pre Ai 28 F2.8 lens.

 Back in 1975 Nikon overhauled their lens line up moving away from the metal scalloped barrel and towards the K series design seen when the Ai lens line up was announced two years later. Nikon changed some lens formulas but also added in a new lens to their wide angle line up, the not commonly found Pre Ai 28 F2.8. From the test roll I shot here, the lens handles just like my Ai 28 F2.8.

The results are of course beautiful and the Pre Ai Nikkor 28 F2.8 is a welcome addition to the lens fleet. 

So why get one? I'm a collector as well as a user, I have an early 1970s Nikkor N 28 F2 which is a fabulous lens, and a pristine chrome nose H 28 F3.5 that sadly the focusing jammed a few weeks ago and it will be fixed when I get my flag switch Nikon F Photomic restored. The K-Series Pre Ai Nikkor lenses, were only made for two years, to fill the gap until the automatic indexing range was released in 1977.
