Hi, my beautiful readers! I was considering skipping this weekend so I can rest and since I did a report on CP+ 2017 last week I felt that I can wait for next week until I publish a lens teardown that I am currently writing. I do listen to my readers and friends and there was a considerable interest on the subject of this week’s article so I decided to write this instead and publish it this weekend. You guys know how much you mean to me so I can’t object.
Remember that I mentioned in my CP+ 2017 post that I almost got a Nikon rangefinder but I lost the chance to get one because somebody beat me to it and I was hesitating? Well, that is probably a good thing because I got a Nikon S2 that was fated to end up with me for the rest of my life! I walked past this camera for days in the bazaar, I always looked at it and I felt as if it was beckoning me to take her home and I felt a weird attachment to it. Imagine that this camera was mine in my previous life and it found it’s way back to me for a CLA in my present life. That’s probably a better story than “Somewhere in Time”, would you agree?
What a lovely little camera and it came with the standard Nikkor-H 5cm f2 lens. It has a “C” engraved on it denoting that it was coated with ancient lens coating technology that isn’t up to snuff compared to current ones but that was a big deal in the olden days. This lens is sharp and has acquired a good reputation but that belongs to another write-up! More
