In the Park II

'Five frames, a leisure time out in the park with the Nikon F601 and the AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mm F3.5~4.5 D'

I have used the AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mm F3.5~4.5 D, mounted on the Nikon N75 for a short stint recently. Well, here I am with the lens again, this time mounted on the Nikon F601, on an early morning walk in the park. Images were captured on a roll of Kodak ColorPlus 200, lab-processed, and scanned on the CanoScan 9000F MkII.

The AF Nikkor 35-105mm F3.5~4.5 D, or in its full designation, 'Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mm f/3.5~4.5D IF' is a 16-elements in 12-groups NIC (Nikon Integrated Coating) multicoated push-pull zoom lens, introduced in 1995. The lens was the last of three versions after the original Nikon's AF Zoom Nikkor 35-105mm f/3.5~4.5, produced from 1986 to 1991, and the replacement Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mm f/3.5~4.5N MK II which was in production from 1991 to 1995.

The AF Nikkor 35-105mm F3.5~4.5 D version, incidentally, is the only version that is fully compatible with all 35mm SLR Nikon film cameras as well as Nikon FX digital cameras manufactured from 1977 onward.

As for the camera, the Nikon F601 is a 1990 vintage, the first Nikon to use a 6V Lithium battery pack, and the second to be fitted with the improved autofocus and spot metering system which is the mainstay of the high-end F-801s.

The F601 is fitted with a built-in pop-up electronic flash, a top shutter speed of 1/2000 of a second, and a new "Matrix" evaluative multi-zone metering program, and is compatible with a wide range of Nikon F-mount lenses, including both autofocus and manual focus types. During its production, the F-601 sat between the Nikon F-401 and Nikon F-801s in the company's consumer SLR range.
