No lens hood is supplied for this applied for this lens since the deeply recessed lens provides an efficient built-in hooded system. However, when a filter is used in close-up work, use of the lens hood for the 35mm f/2 .8 is recommended in order to prevent reflection of light from the filter surface.
The Micro-Nikkor-P is a close-up lens which reaches maximum performance at a 1:10 reproduction ratio. It also produces an excellent image of greater reproduction ratios as well as at distance, since the definition and distortion-correction remain virtually unchanged over the entire focusing range.
The built-in dual-helical system provides continuous focusing from infinity to a reproduction ratio of 1:2, using the micro – Nicole Micro-Nikkor-P’s on focusing barrel. This allows the photographer to switch from distant shots to close-ups, or vice versa, without interrupting his work. The addition of the M2 ring, supplied with the lens, extends the reproduction ratio to 1:1. Macro-photography is possible in conjunction with other close-up attachments.
Like other Niko auto lenses, the Micro-Nikkor-P has a fully automatic diaphragm which couples with the Nikon F Photomic FTn and Nikkormat series cameras through the lens metering and in addition this model has been converted to AI by Nikon UK it will fit all other cameras up to and including the Nikon FM3A.
