  • Cylinder in the Barrel column indicates that lens barrel is shaped like a cylinder
  • Late model type 3 has e-line use and h-line use type
  • The color of the serial number becomes green from the late model type 4

  • The end of red engraving from type 3 is "e" or "h"
  • There is no numero sign (No.) in the serial number of type 5
  • Type 5 will be "Nikon" instead of "Nippon Kogaku Japan"

  • ☆ mark indicates rare
  • ☆☆☆ mark indicates very very rare
  • Since the serial number seems to be not very regularity, so I don't use for classification
