    Unknown Lens

    I have acquired a Nikon AM 210mm 1:56. It is in excellent condition but I don't know what the intended use of the lens is. Any insight would be appreciated.

    If it's like my Nikon 120mm AM (pictures would help) it's a Marco lens. An absolutely wonderful lens for Macro but not much good for anything else. If it’s like mine it won’t focus anywhere near sharp at infinity. Being a 210mm Macro you will need a camera with a LOT of bellows extension to be able to use it to its full potential.

    Look at what Google finds for AM-ED and Nikkor.

    Search first, then ask for help if the search is fruitless.

    Ya!
    I had a friend who shot jewelery back in the days of film in the studio, he swore by that AM 210.
