    Valuations of this lens are inflated above the later N version, not because of rarity or optical quality, but on the basis of a well publicised misread of manufacturing data that implies unusual IR sensitivity. However, all first generation EL-Nikkor 63/3.5 are optically identical and inferior to the N redesign of 1981/82. This is a fine lens but, at current prices, not recommended for either collectors or users.
