It's a lens from the film days, before DX, so it covers full frame.
Been looking for one myself....too late!

I sold one last year for $350.00, so the price is a steal.

Not sure which one you sold for that price! The 50 f2 is a oldie but goodie, but they are not selling anywhere near that price.
Wish they were!

I'm not sure which one it was. Didn't know there was more than one model. I bought it from a friend of mine that worked at a camera store in NY. He was selling most of his camera equipment to raise money for something. The sale was not posted anywhere. I found out about the lens during a conversation with him. I made a "cash right now" offer and had a deal right away. I kept it for two years but found I seldom used it, so I sold it to a guy who was a fellow member of longIslandPhotographyMeetup.com I should check and see if he still has it. If he wants to sell it for $50.00 I'll grab it.

This is a highly respected lens.

I realize that this now has sold, but here are comments that all concerned may find useful.

This has the appearance of an AI lens, being the post-H.C version, whose barrel moved into the AI version. The AI version of this lens is a great asset. Low distortion wide open. The BR-2 reversing ring delivers close-up and macro.

The "bad" news:
WRt comments on the model, this is without question a pre-AI variant.
The green coating is and the serial number support my remark.
So as originally manufactured, it cannot be used on, say, a D810.

The good news:
This non-AI lens has been fitted by an early owner with an AI mount.
The more desirable AI version of this lens is the same as this version on UHH, except the mount of the UHH lens has been updated to AI.
It is possible that the coating changed for the true AI version, but I very much doubt it.
There is no later version than the true AI version, so, for example, you are not able to get better optics or a NIC coating.

Price:
The seller's price is suitable. KEH charges more for AI; I know, as I bought an AI variant recently and recorded the prices as just under $100.
For all practical purposes, the UHH lens is an AI lens, but really, it is not because the pre-AI UHH lens shown here has been updated from pre-AI to AI, in a Nikon-sanctioned manner, using Nikon's factory kit.
