Wide-angle for the Nikon S system... ?

Wide-angle for the Nikon S system... ?

I am working on building a reasonably complete working kit for my Nikon S and S-2.

I have two bodies: Dad's S, and a very nice S-2 that I recently acquired.

So far I have the 50/1.4 and the 3.5/135 for both.

Now, there's no two ways about it, wide-angle lenses for the Nikon RF are ridiculously expensive; therefore, I'm probably going to acquire just one WA lens between the two cameras.

Of the several varieties of Wide-angle Nikon RF lens, which are the best for all-around pictures... I'm trying to avoid priceless collectibles, if I can help it.

Suggestions please ?

( Would also consider Contax / Russian lenses if they are a viable, less-expensive alternative...)

Thanks !

Voigtlander wide-angles lenses are great lenses, I have a 25mm and it's really sweet
and there prices are not over the top either. I also have a 35mm f2.5 Nikkor in chrome
which are reasonable as well.

The 35mm. F/2.5 is an excellent lens. ( It had a long life post rangefinder days on the Nikonos.) I have used one for forty-five years. Not as glamourous as the F/1.8, but a better lens.

I would also recommend the Voigtlander 21mm Color Skopar, which might still be obtained from Cameraquest in the limited edition Nikon S mount. This is based on ownership; I expect that all the Voiglanders are good.

Mounting Contax or Kiev lenses produces a very nasty circular scratch on the metal surrounding the lens mount...avoid them! Now, it all depends on how wide you want to go. For my shooting, 35mm is usually sufficient. I have used the
W-Nikkor-C 3.5cm 2.5 for many years. It is very sharp and contrasty. As a matter of fact it is equal to or better than the recent Voigtlander 35mm 2.5...I shot them both side-by-side and still use the Nikkor. The Nikkor I have in chrome I bought here for $200.00. If you want to go wider, a used Voigtlander 21 or 25mm is the best choice.

The only thing I don't like about it is the aperture ring way out on the front where any little bump can change it.

This has not been my experience w/Zeiss lenses on the S2, SP, S3 2000, or SP 2005.

Edit: I don't have any Kiev wides.

I agree.
While I have 28 3.5, 35 1.8, 50 1.4, 85 f2, 105 2.5, and 135 3.5 Nikon lenses, for my rangefinders, I also have the CV21 f4 and 25 f4 lenses as well, and get excellent photos with them.
I'd recommend them as well as the 35 2.5 (which I no longer own) without reservation, if you're looking for cost-effective
lens options for Nikon rangefinders.

The Nikkor 28mm f3.5 - small, sharp and light! Alternative is the CV 25 which is a modern lens formula. Again, light weight and very good performance. Of course, I am biased towards 21's - life long habit and however much I would like a rf Nikkor 21f4 - I can't justify the cost for the performance. The VC 21f4 is a better lens in terms of optical performance. You will need top mounted finders for any of the wider lenses though. I would try to find a 35f2.5 and match it up with the VC 21f4 and later try to find either a Nikkor 85f2 or a Apo Lanthar 85mm f3.5 to complete the line up.

The Jupiter-12 35/2.8 is an excellent lens, but one have to file down the rear side or the lens external mount collar ring by removing a layer of about 1mm of metal so that it doesn't scratch a Nikon body.

This is pretty easy to do, though. And once done it doesn't show when the lens is mounted on the camera.

Another vote here for the W-Nikkor-C 35/2.5, which is a killer and a luuuuvely lens.

Great photo !

So, if one dresses-down the mount-ring on a Contax / Jupiter lens to fit it to a Nikon RF w/o injury, will that lens still mount correctly on a Contax RF ?

One more vote for the CV 25mm f/4. I use it on ny Contax IIa - it pairs nicely with a 35mm lens (I have the 35mm f/1.8 that's on my SP 2005)

I bought mine from the head bartender here.

Yes, of course. What you have to do is to file down the rear side of the outer decorative chrome mount-ring (you have to remove it to perform the job, but it's very easy - three screws only). The only caveat is : do NOT play with the mount release lever when the chrome mount-ring is removed, or you will see its spring jump away with no hope of return...

Nikon SP, Zeiss Planar 35mm f3.5, TriX, HC 110 1:60 for 11 min. The Zeiss Planar seems to go on without "bashing" up the front plate. The Jupiter 35f2.8 can,as stated, scratch the front plate a bit.
I have two of the Jupiters, one black and one chrome. The chrome is a tighter fit although neither one has been filed down to fit. I simply used pre-bashed SP's and S3's for these lenses.

Nikon SP, Jupiter 35mm f2.8 (Kiev mount). Arista Premium 400, D 23 two bath developer. I think this is with the older chrome version, slightly lower contrast than the black one.

Good tip !!

I modified my Jupiter-12 (Kiev mount) before attempting to mount it, took me maybe 20 minutes of carefully grinding with some abrasive paper. It does to not look nice but does the trick and works well.

I had the Skopar 28mm f/3.5 on my S3, a lovely little lens, and can recommend it. Also used the Jupiter-12 35mm, definitely a bargain, and filed the rear brass collar to fit, though without disassembly.

For a really wide lens, the Voigtlander 21/4 is a very reasonably priced choice.
I don't like the small size and easy rotation of the aperture ring, the accessory focusing ring which comes with these lenses is almost a necessity.




A good all-around lens like the Nikkor 28/3.5 is also a good choice. Mine is quite old and beat up, but is still a good performer. The front element is set rather deeply in the lens, so a hood isn't necessary.

As relative newcomer to Nikon Rangefinders can I add an observation? If you are used to using tabbed lenses to focus take care with the external mount lenses. As you see from some of the posts above they have a spring loaded external lock. It is very easy, for me at least, to mistake this for a tab when focussing at the eye, this unlocks the lens which could then become detached from the mount. I have not managed to do this and am learning to remember.

I have not put a lot of film through yet but concur that the 35mm f2.5 is very good, I of course have a yearning for the f1.8, it is fast, it is legendary and a little voice says expensive and probably at f4 no better than the f2.5 but at f1.8!!

The Voigtlander glass is also very good and beautifully made for 21mm it has to be the answer. You can buy and re-sell for little or no loss to run through the options. I always tell myself that as well but the selling bit never seems to happen for some reason.


3.5cm f2.5 Nikkor Adox 100 Td-201

What flare?? Very resistant and no hood, as said no need, well recessed element.

A great picture, maddoc !

A lot of good advice has been given already, so little more to add. If you avoid the really expensive lenses (3.5 f/1.8 , 2.5 f/4 and 2.1 f/4 Nikkors), you still have plenty of choice. I'd recommend the 3.5 f/2.5 or the 2.8 f/3.5 as moderate wides. The CV 21mm is a great lens as well, but you have to ask yourself how wide you'd like to go.

Tom's advice about the top mounted finders is sound. You may have to hunt just a little harder to find a Nikkor with its matching finder, but you'll see that it's always better to buy them together than to try and locate a finder on its own to match your lens.

If you're the kind of person that changes lenses on a shoot, having to change lens and finder will soon become a pain. In the end I prefer to use 2 camera bodies, each with its own lens and finder pair.

If starting from scratch I'd go for a modern CV brightlines metal finder. Those are less expensive new than the vintage Nikon ones on the second hand market.

A nice Jupiter-12 with a CV brightlines 35mm finder will cost less than a W-Nikkor-C 35/2.5 alone.

Apart from having to file down the Jupiter-12 mount ring there is no caveat for using it on a Nikon RF body :

http://malikmatacamera.blogspot.fr/2...r-12-lens.html

And - the KMZ 35mm finder shouldn't be discarded, either. It's good enough and costs peanuts. So the all-FSU 35mm solution can cost about $75, for excellent results.

Mwclassic.com have none in the list at the moment but do bring them over from Japan. If you have a specific request and ask I'm sure they will help, the last batch sold out quite rapidly.

Another vote for the original 2.8cm f/3.5 Nikkor. It's a fantastic lens.
The CV 21mm f/4 is very good too but 21mm and wider tend to be not as useful for most people as a 28mm or 35mm.

The Nikkor 35mm f2.5 is so good, some of us go to extremes just to use it in our pet-of-the-day camera:



Focus is by guesstimation, but it works beautifully:

I'd go with the Nikkor 28/3.5 on an S2. Full frame is just about perfect and it's a 1:1 viewfinder!

What was the most recent picture taken with?

AAAAAH, should use my glasses more often, the UW 35/2.5, very cool combo.

She is a most excellent lens in just about every version.

You do have 13.5cm lenses, right? Those are external mount.

How wide does it have to be Frank?

28mm is pretty wide and pretty expensive, any route you go, you pay $300-$400

Anything wider than that kinda falls into specialty category, how useful is a 21?

35mm is kinda the cheapest option here, there is even a 35mm f3.5, that would be the cheapest Nikkor next to the file-down Russian jobs.
You will also need an external finder, although you can aproximate things with the S2

Of the several varieties of Wide-angle Nikon RF lens, which are the best for all-around pictures... I'm trying to avoid priceless collectibles, if I can help it.

Suggestions please ?

( Would also consider Contax / Russian lenses if they are a viable, less-expensive alternative...)

Thanks !

Frank ,
It depends on how wide you want to go .
I really like the 28 mm focal length , so the 2.8cm f3.5 is my lens .
The 35 mm focal length is the favorite of many ,
The 3.5cm f2.5 is a great lens .
In chrome finish it is worth a bit more than the Jupiter russian lens .
The 35 2.5 in chrome if you look around is reasonable
The later black lenses command more money .

To me, vastly more useful than a 28, which is neither one thing ("standard" like 35mm) nor the other (wide like a 21).

Just curious. How far off would the focus be using a Nikkor 35/2.5 in Contax mount on the S2? I'm assuming the same with Amedeo adapter on a M7.

I've used a Contax-mount Jupiter-12 (Biogon) 35mm on a Nikon S3 without any apparent focus error. From what I've heard, the discrepancy shows up in the 50mm and longer focal lengths.

Hey Bill, I don't think Nikon ever made the Nikkor 35/2.5 in Contax mount. No need to when the Nikon S-mount version will work ok on Contax mount cameras (i.e. enough DOF to cover the focus error).
