    For sale is a Nikon 55mm F3.5K AI'd by John White in good condition. Blades are clean. Glass is too. Barrel has a few small marks but overall is in good condition. Includes caps.

    Also includes a Nikon M2 tube and a PN1 tube. Both in bargain condition. The PN1 has a built in tripod mount which is very useful when getting large magnifications. The M2 gets the combo to 1:1. The PN1 adds another 52.5mm to the 27.5mm of the M2. No caps.

    Price is $99 shipped to cont. US with paypal fees included.

    Note: The 55mm has been AI modified but the tubes have not. Do not use the tubes on a modern Nikon body without checking for compatibility.

    Any chance this could mount on a panny G2? Is there an adapter and if so do you think it would work? It already looks a little unwieldy.
    Thanks

    It would work fine on the G2. I use a $24 Fotodiox Nikon F to m43 adapter.

    Although to be honest at full magnification you'll probably want to use the tripod mount on the PN1. It's not that it's very heavy or unbalanced(it's actually pretty light - hollow), it's body sway, close focusing distance, and controlling dof .

    The 55mm by itself and with the m2 handles very nicely and the large grip on the G2 should make it quite comfortable to use.
