...Thanks for the head-start.

My poor M-N has been siting in the closet for years on my old Ftn.

Nikkormat Ftn... It uses normal (pre-Ai) F-mount. So maybe you are not talking about the industrial ultra-micro-nikkor 55mm f2, but the (also lovely) micro-Nikkor auto 55mm f3.5?

For this lens you need a F-mount to EF mount adapter. The old version with metal scalloped metal focus ring is super sharp at macro and close up distances, with lovely bokeh. A really nice lens which is much easier to use and more versatile than the ultra micro nikkor I was posting about.

For the 55mm f3.5 micro you need something like this:

You have helped me give it a second life !

Best !

Your are right; I forgot the max aperture was 3.5.

Please forgive me for wasting you time !    

I've never heard of the lens you are refering to and mistook it for my own.

Your images have a very unique look to them.

My apologies again.

Dave
