Uppsala Shot through a Classic Lens


My first SLR camera was a Nikkormat, with the then standard 50mm lens, bought in 1969. Two years later I bought another lens, the Nikkor-H Auto 28mm f=3.5. This lens was first made in 1959, the same year as the introduction of the Nikon F, the camera that changed modern photography for ever. My 28mm lens was made in 1971; it's all metal and glass, no plastic anywhere, all manual (by the way, 28mm focal length corresponds to the angle of view you get from a smartphone camera). Thanks to the mirrorless Nikon Z6 + the FTZ (F-mount To Z-mount) adaptor, one can mount (almost) any F-lens on to the camera. Nikon claims that pre-AI lenses are not compatible with the adaptor, but I have not encountered any problem using the 28mm. I'm also going to try the Micro-Nikkor Auto 55mm f=3.5, and the Nikkor-P Auto 105mm f=2.5. So, today's photo diary images are shot through a truly classic lens.
