you've done a good thing there.

If it's a later example it has the "f22" painted in orange to remind you where to set aperture for the Nikon FA program modes.

I think it's my all-time favourite Nikkor, there's just something so satisfying about how it does macro, even with the PB6 bellows extension, it's easy to use for portraits (f2.8 still gives enough depth of field to know you can keep both eyes in sharp focus) and it's extremely sharp at f5.6 out to infinity.

The 105mm micro-Nikkor AI-S is definitely one of the greats.
