Nikon Nikkor Q 135mm f/3.5 Lens
I just received my Nikon Nikkor Q 135mm f/3.5 Lens (Nippon Kogaku Non Ai), purchased on e-bay for under $50 with shipping. I haven't tried it in daytime but intial tests in the house look really good, sharp manual focus. It works in manual mode on my D40. I also ordered a 2x extender for the lens for about $10. I love to play with old lenses. I'll have some pictures soon.

Examples from my little road trip below:

I bought a couple of old Nikon manual focus lenses a couple of years back. Nobody wants MF lenses anymore so there are amazingly good deals to be had on fine lenses - if you don't mind turning the focus ring by yourself...

Good luck with it.

I bought a similar lens, the 135/2.8, when I saw it sitting on a store's shelf in Chicago. I was just amazed at how small and cheap it was. I bought it for my GH1, for which I have a Nikon F adapter, but I've taken some photos that I like with my D700 as well.

There's a lot to be said for old lenses - they can certainly be a lot of fun.
