Just bought this lens in excellent condition for cheap ($30) to replace one I had sold years ago. Early sixties Nikkor 43-86mm zoom lens (Nippon Kogaku) on Nikon F with HN-3 lens shade. One of Nikon's first zooms, it is beautifully made and despite it's notoriety as being "soft" it is considered a Nikon classic. This lens (modified with the focus locked at infinity) was used on the KS-80A motorized Nikon F for the U.S. Navy in the sixties assigned to pilots in Viet Nam.
