Which old (used) Nikkor 55mm micro would be worth a look?
Nov 19, 2012

Thinking a bit last night, while I've shot over 40 Nikkors in my days, the last time I shot the 55 micro was an old F/3.5 version 30+ years ago, so my opinion of it really can't be relevant in todays world. The used prices on these things are pretty reasonable, and I just want to play, so I ask: which of the old 55mm micro nikkors (AI or AIS, 3.5 or 2.8) are the best. Usage would be close to close/moderate distance work, probably on a D800E, maybe on a D600 down the road. Just for experimental use - I'm curious how it will hold up under the more demanding bodies of today.

Thanks for any insight.
