Nikon 50mm f2 Nikkor-H.C Auto Pre-AI - Lens

Nikon 50mm f2 Nikkor-H.C Auto Pre-AI - Lens

Manual focus normal lens made for F-mount SLR cameras by Nikon starting in 1973. This is a later version of the 50mm f2 with multi-coating and a black front filter ring instead of a silver one (to better combat reflections). it has bunny ear metering prongs but no AI ridge or AI-S indent so it will only meter properly on the F, F2, and Nikkormat cameras and may cause issues if mounted to newer cameras. Metal body available in silver & black.

  • Nikon 50mm f2 Nikkor-H.C Auto (6 elements, 4 groups)
  • Minimum focus distance: 0.6m
  • Aperture blades: 6

Nikon F

Nikon introduced their first SLR, the Nikon F, in 1959. Alongside it they unveiled a series of lenses and a new lens mount that would carry them to professional success for the next decades. To this day, all Nikon DSLRs use the Nikon F mount.

In the beginning, Nikon lenses communicated aperture information to the body using a metal coupling fork, affectionately known as "bunny ears". Soon after, Nikon began using a similar system that automatically told the camera the maximum aperture of the lens. This Automatic Indexing (AI) system stuck around for decades in lenses and is still found on Nikon's high-end professional DSLRs even though new lenses communicate this information electronically.

With only minor compatibility issues (don't use a pre-AI lens on AI bodies or modern digital cameras), Nikon F lenses and bodies are pretty much interchangeable.
