    This antique lens was my Dad's. Rarely used, with his old Leica IIIc. It is a metal barreled 135mm F3.5, quite sturdy, beautifully finished and made by a long gone company that would become Nikon. Everything is manual of course. It makes an interesting 270mm lens! Looks neat, I will test it out on a nice sunny day to see what sort of birds and stuff can be photographed.

    Actually, it's the very same company with a very long history. They simply renamed the company to match their camera brand.

    You lens should prove to be very good. You should enjoy the images it makes. Nikon made excellent lenses, even in those days.

    There's a nice "biography" of the lens discribing it's many variations on the MIR site. The lens was made in Nikon S mount (their RF mount), Contax RF mount, and Leica thread mount (like yours).
