Ultra-Micro-NIKKOR 55mm f2

A lens made for industrial applications in the late 60's, with very limited possibilities (does not even  have a variable focus).

Michio Akiyama wrote about it:

Nippon Kogaku Dreaming, 55mm F2 of Ultra-Micro-Nikkor.

Yes, you can make it.
And you can have it.
If you want."

Trying to use it on APS-C, due to home made adapter at 1:2.5 magnification level, I must say I find the way it renders rather special, for 55mm.
