nikkor 50 hc

      This lens sells for less than the more popular H model.   I'm not sure why.  Perhaps it is due to slightly lower tolerances in its construction.   Optically, it's all Nikkor.   It's sharp at f2.  Bokeh is pleasing at wide apertures.  Focusing is not as well dampened as other Nikkors but that can be changed with a regreasing.    If you can get a good copy of this lens, don't hesitate.
