  • HELP! Anyone know anything about these.

    A friend of my wife's was clearing out her late fathers cupboards and found these and passed them on to me.












    Also an Nikon F-301 film SLR.

    All are clean apart from a bit of dust on the outside. I think they're Nikon F mount?
    I assume I could get an adapter to 4/3 or m4/3. Wondered if its worth having a play. I quite like the idea of the 50mm f1.4.

    It might help if you can show us a photo of one of the lens mounts, Andy.

      I wasn't thinking so much about the mount as if anyone has any experience of use this type of lens, but your right I should have shown the mount.

      Here we go



      From doing a bit of reading I believe they're know as AIS lenses(well the Nikon ones are).

        The primes should be fine (fine primes). Probably not the zooms though.

          Both the primes are highly regarded. The photo of the mount shows a pre ai lens. They will mount via an adapter.

              Thanks. Think I might have a punt at a cheap adapter next month.

                Also in the box was a Fuji s6500 bridge camera. This takes 4 AA batteries which had been left in the camera for I don't know how many years and corroded.
                Took a bit of cleaning and fiddling but it now works.
                Takes surprisingly good pictures in Raw. I'll let my wife use this on the rare times she uses a camera as my old UZ760 she was using has given up the ghost.

                  Yes the Nikon primes are highly regarded. I've used the 50 F1.4 on film and digital and it was a stellar performer as 50mm primes often are.

                  The Sigma zoom is from an era when cheap zooms weren't all that but you never know if it's used on a sensor 1/4 of the area of full frame.

                  The 50 and 24 Nikons would sell well on Ebay or wherever if you didn't want them.

                  Mal.
