Old, but New to Me

Nikon N2000 camera with 50mm F1.8 "nifty fifty" lens attached, next to 75-150mm F3.5 "E Series" Nikkor Lens. Equipment circa 1981, photo taken today.


I purchased 3 old Nikon lenses (plus Nikon N2000 camera, etc) from a very nice couple in Philadelphia today.


Manual focus, I would guess they were assembled around 1981. My D40 has no idea they are even lenses but the D300 has no problem accepting them. An old NiftyFifty (1.8) as well as a 28mm f2.8 E series. The final one is an oddball - a Nikon "E" series 75-150mm F3.5 - complete with push-pull zoom and a fairly fast 150mm for a very reasonable price. Seems very sharp so far, but I need to test more. This photo was taken with the 28mm on my D300.


My daughter is in love with the red filter that was included: of course this is to produce red photos!
