Comments: This is just the non-multicoated version of the 50mm f/2 H.C non-AI. It is still great, I still wish it focused closer. There are AI versions of this lens which focus down to 0.45 meters/1.5 feet. Given that Nikon made like half a million of these lenses it was fairly hard to find one in good shape.
