Orchid



I just acquired a new lens from eBay, Nikkor 50mm f/2 AI, produced between 1977 - 1979 period. Never planned on this before, but I found this very cheap offer is too good to skip. Only USD 50 + USD 16,3 shipping to Indonesia !! After googling a little, I found many positive comments about this lens. It's true this is not the pro f/1.4 or the popular f/1.8, but it is reported to be very sharp and have specific character, with six bladed aperture which differentiates it from the other 50mm Nikkor. I think 66 dollar is a low risk spend, so I hit the Buy button.

The internet reviewers didn't lie. I like the rendering of this orchid.
