Hello, everybody! Did you miss me? I sure missed you. I am currently very busy at work and it is taking a toll on my body, in fact I had to take a rest yesterday because I’m just so tired. I am currently heading 3 projects because I am a versatile employee. Being versatile is good because you can be useful here and there but being versatile also means that your skills are spread thin. This is a common problem if you are not a specialist in something before you acquire a second skill. In my case, I am a specialist at the technical side of the business and the other things that I do are things that I happen to know enough of to make decisions for the project and the company. If I were to be a Nikkor, which lens would I be? We will see.
Today, I will show you one of the most versatile lens designs that made it into production and became so successful that it spawned copycats and a legacy that lasts to this day when it came to the essence of the idea – the awesome Micro-Nikkor-P 55mm f/3.5 lens!
I really love this lens, the all-metal construction is tough and the ergonomics are perfect! You can’t get any simpler than this and this lens is so practical that it’s still relevant today as a general-purpose normal lens. This lens spawned copies from other manufacturers in it’s day from rival companies all the way to small obscure brands. It is a successful design! More
