Serious Scientist and His Cooperation
Dr. Vivek Iyer is a scientist to live in Netherlands. He is an expert of the chemistry, and is doing a serious research.
Also, he is exploring the deep sea of super high resolution Nikkor lenses. However, he is a photographer of apart from others not to hope to belong to the group of camera fan. But he admitted my website, RED BOOK NIKKOR. The first person who requests me to make the website of an English version is Vivek-san. He challenged reading this website of a Japanese version!
Through the internet network, he offered me a lot of useful and rare technical information. I'd like to introduce his collection and his idea here. Vivek-san wrote the following manuscripts. Thank you very much Vivek-san. Domo Arigatoh!!
About My Favorite High Resolution Nikkor Lenses
At that time, I had just acquired my first Ultra Micro Nikkor, the 55mm F2 lens.
From your informative, and poetical website on the special Nikkor lenses,
my interests, certainly expanded.
One of my favorite lenses, out of the vast high resolution,
lenses is the CRT Nikkor 55mm F1.2 lens.
However, to extract the most from its capacity, it is better used mounted on a Konica. The Konica camera this lens is mounted is no ordinary camera! This is the only 35mm reflex camera capable of full frame and half frame pictures on the same roll!
I found another classic, the Olympus Pen F reflex camera to be the best suited camera for using the Ultra Micro Nikkor 55mm F2 lens. Given the fact that most of the original Pen F lenses have >100 lp/mm resolution, this is fitting.
Exploring the Deep Sea of Super High Resolution Nikkor World
Apart from the pleasure of using these special lenses,
this search has lead me to many wonderful friends through the web and in person.
I wish that people who come across these special lenses whether for collection or actual use,
would understand their special properties, appreciate the real quality of the craftsmanship
of the engineers who designed them and made them and cherish their beauty.
I am very grateful for your enormous effort to bring out the wonderful information to the
people world over!
