The meeting's theme was the special research of Nikkor 8.5cm F2 lens for rangefinder Nikon. The meeting took place in Shintomi-cho, Tokyo, near Ginza. Several members brought their beautiful heavy chrome lenses. On the table were lenses ranging from the early 801 series to the 49 series with a black barrel.

Rare 48mm filters and Repro Nikkor 85mm F1.0

We were able to see the full set of 48mm filters as well as the Repro Nikkor 85mm F1.0 lens at this meeting. Yes, 48mm filters were only made for the Nikkor 8.5cm lens. As a result, 48mm filters are difficult to come by nowadays. Furthermore, the series XII filter is hard to find.

On the table is the Repro Nikkor 85mm F1.0 lens, which I love. The filter size of the Repro Nikkor 85mm F1.0 is also 48mm. The industrial Nikkor lens from the 1970s could use the old filter, cap, and food from an 8.5cm lens.
