Vintage & Pre-AI Nikkor Lenses

Prime Lenses

Ai/AiS Coupling Prong Set c/w 2 screws for Manual Focus Nikkor Lenses
Opportunity to acquire a most useful part no longer available in Japan. This is the latest variety and will replace a missing or bent rounded (not pyramid) solid version used with those pre-Ai lenses designed to couple with all Photomic heads. Due to bulk purchase of remaining stocks, we are able to offer sets with 2 original screws at a special price for the first time on our website. These will replace missing or bent prongs ("rabbit ears") with new original Nikon parts.
MINT £15.00
6mm f/5.6 Fisheye-Nikkor
Together with the 6mm f/2.8 lens, this is the widest of the Fisheye-Nikkor lenses, with an angle of view of 220°. With its 6mm focal length and extremely wide coverage, subjects slightly behind the camera will also be included in the image. There are six filters built in on a rotating turret: L1A (Skylight), Y48 & Y52 (light and medium yellow), R60 (Red), XO (green and O57 (orange). The aperture range is: f/5.6 to f/22, Elements/groups: 9/6. Apparently, the 6mm Fisheye-Nikkor was originally produced as a survey lens for the National Arctic Survey to take pictures of the whole sky and cloud formations unhindered. First production: January 1969. Our research suggests that serial numbers began with 656001(excluding five prototypes); this example is number 660099. The lens is complete with caps and finder (also with cap).

10mm f/5.6 OP Fisheye-Nikkor, pre-AI
NEAR NEW. Exceptionally rare. Complete with finder, Front & rear caps, original maker's box. We have NEVER seen such a complete example in our entire history of 29 years. The OP Fisheye-Nikkor 10mm f/5.6 was released in 1968 and was the world's first lens to project an orthographic image onto the film plane. It was also a milestone design inasmuch as it was the first SLR lens in the world to incorporate the fiendishly difficult to produce aspheric element (as used in the most expensive Schmidt telescope designs). The subjects in the centre of the image appear larger than those at the edges, and the entire field is thus evenly illuminated. The OP creates a round image with a diameter of 20mm. This lens is used on the Nikon F or F2 with the mirror-up and with a separate finder mounted on the accessory shoe (finder supplied with lens). Focal length: 10mm, Angle of view: 180°, Aperture scale: f/5.6-f/22, 9 elements in 6 groups, Filters: Built-in, L1A, Y48, Y52, 056, R60 & X0, Fixed focus, 84mm dia. x 105mm length, Weight: 380g, DF-1 fisheye finder.

Five filters, neutral density, UV, Yellow, Orange and Red, were originally supplied with the lens and ALL are in place! one mounted (UV) and the others in special leather harnesses the lid of the case. A tripod would be attached to the tripod socket on the side of the lens and not on the camera bottom to hold excellent balance. The hood serves not only to prevent injurious extraneous light, but also to protect the front glass. It is recommended to attach the hood at all times. Camera Turning: For convenience in changing the position of the camera to horizontal or vertical, when using the lens with a tripod, the lens is provided with a fluted spring catch. Depressing this catch will enable the camera to be rotated 90 degrees, at which point it will click into lock position. Serial number 181294 indicates early 1964 manufacture in time for Tokyo Olympics! Such a complete system is a real rarity and a most sought after collectors' item. Optically bright and fully guaranteed!

*Definition: Nikon digital SLRs have either an FX or a DX sensor. The FX sensor, measuring 24x36mm, is roughly equivalent to the size of the 35mm film frame. The DX sensor is smaller, measuring 15.8x23.6mm.

DX-NIKKOR lenses are engineered and optimized for use on Nikon DX-format D-SLRs and are designed to cover the smaller image area of the DX sensor. When a DX lens is mounted on an FX-format Nikon D-SLR, the cameras DX-Crop Mode is automatically engaged, introducing a 1.5x magnification (cropping) factor.
