Additional information:


The Nikon Micro Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 (non-Ai type-K)  is a normal prime macro lens for 35 mm Nikon F  SLR cameras. The lens offers picture coverage of 43°.

When used without PK-3 Ring, it is possible to take 1:2 macro scale pictures (1:1 with the extension ring).

According to Roland Vink's authoritative tables it is the last version of the lens. It is remarkable for the PK-3 designation on the ring and characteristic rubberized texture of the focus ring.
