    A rare lens. This is the last NAI lens in the later design, before it was converted to AI in 1977.

    Features a double helical thread for accurate and precise focusing. Focuses down to 9.5 inches and provides a reproduction ratio of 1:2. The ‘M’ extension tube is needed to obtain a 1:1 reproduction ratio. No lens hood is needed. The front element is so deep set in the barrel, no hood is needed unless you are using a filter.
