Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 N non-AI

Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 N non-AI(non-AI 70-77, AI 77-81, AI-S 81-present)
This sample circa '72.

Filter size: 52mm
Close focus distance: 1 foot or .3 meters
Aperture range: f/1.4 - f/22
Aperture blades: 9
Depth of field scale for f/4, f/8 - 22, plus IR focusing index.
Design: 9 elements in 7 groups

One of Nikon's oldest designs. This relatively early copy has radioactive Thorium glass, which gives it a heavy yellow cast. Leaving the elements exposed to the sun should clear it out, but I don't mind it for black and white shooting. Has close range correction. All versions are multicoated.

Here are the other non-perspective control Nikon non-AI 35mm lenses: 35mm f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, and 3.5cm f/2.8

It also looks pretty similar to the 105mm f/2.5 non-AI (black front)
