I ran across in an older HH post a source for determining if your Nikon camera or lens is a USA model or not. For those who like me were not aware of its existence, this website lists a plethora of Nikon models of cameras and lens, sorted by expertise level, then sorted by geographical area. The site gives peripheral information on each model, including intro date of the item, serial numbers, weight, etc.. The website is www.photosynthesis.co.nz.camera for cameras and www.photosynthesis.co.nz.lens (or lenses) for lens. The information is voluminous, for cameras it takes 17 pages, single-spaced, but the 17th page has only a few lines and the first page gives directions on how to use the website. A tip, the list uses "<" to start a sequence of serial numbers and a ">" to end the sequence. I noticed that in the case of some of the upper level, pro cameras there was no geographical area listed. I thought that this information might be useful to some UHH members.

Interesting, removing the trailing slash in the original links provided doesn't work either.
Firefox on Win 7.
Looks like the pages are in "lenses" and "camera" files in a "nikon" sub-directory.

Apologies, gave incorrect addresses. They should read (1) photosynthesis.co.nz/nikon/camera and (2) photosynthesis.co.nz/nikon/camera.

This link works:
http://www.photosynthesis.co.nz.

then I clicked on:
Roland's Nikon Pages are here

I clicked on it and got:

Nikon lens information:
The first four pages here catalog most Nikon rangefinder and F-mount SLR lens that I know of. The format of each page is similar, but due to lack of space I split them into pages which cover different information:
Serial numbers - Detailed list of lens versions and subversions with serial numbers and dates of production.
Specifications -Detailed specifications of all Nikon lenses.
Accessories - Filter size, Hoods, Cases and Teleconverters.
Nikon Lenses - Summmary of the other three pages - serial numbers, specifications and accessories.
Nikon Cameras - Serial numbers and specifications of Nikon cameras (DSLRs so far...)
Nikon Ai Modifications - Complete list of Ai modification parts and other related information.
Items for sale - I have some items for sale.
