COM-Nikkor 37mm F1.4

One of the more fantastic and rare lenses for the CRT Recording-Nikkor series.

The rim of the lens is engraved as "COM-NIKKOR 1:1.4 f=37mm M=1/8 Nikon" with white painted character.
Therefore, the lens is highly performance and a distortion is only +0.07%!!!

Computer Output Microfilm (COM) photography is defined by certain distinct conditions, such as the color, intensity, and contrast of the traced images.
These constitute the distinct performance limits of COM-Nikkor lenses.
The range of aberration correction is from 400 to 650 nanometers. The contrast between the traces and the screen background is maximized.
High resolution is attained by using a large, high-speed aperture, which also takes care of adequate exposure of the fairly high framing speed of moving traces on the CRT.
The COM-Nikkor 37mm F1.4 covers a field diameter of 15mm with standard magnification of 1/8X.
