It is without a doubt the best Nikkor
lens I've ever had in my collection.
Don't pass it by!

Purchased new in 1978 and put away.
Stored in a dry cabinet. Never handled.
"Factory Fresh".

SN 4169985
Made in Japan (black)
Made from March 1977 (412xxxx to 426xxxx)
7 elements/6 groups
7-blade aperture
52mm filters

The lens is new, never even mounted on
a body. No fungus, no mold, some dust.
*There is some light haze visible under a strong
LED light. Under natural light, the glass optical
elements look clean and clear.
The aperture blades are oil-free and snappy.
The focus is smooth and the aperture
ring clicks nicely in place.

*You won't find a better lens from this
production run.
*This is a better lens than the Ai-S model.

The papers match the box and lens serial number.
The box is solid.
Features the EPOI sticker from the Nikon USA
distributor (Ehrenreich Photo-Optical Industries).

Smoke and pet-free home.

I mail daily.
Mails fully insured with tracking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does your shop offer combined shipping?

Yes, just let us know and we'll work something out. No need to pay for shipping more than once.

Does your shop accept returns?

Yes, but with some exceptions. No returns on custom-made items. Part two - we will gladly accept a return within 14 days as long as it is returned to us in the same condition as when we sent it to you. Specifically, if an item is new and unused and in its original box and packaging it must be returned in an unused and unopened condition. Vintage and classic cameras, lenses, and certain pieces of vintage photogear carry no warranties or guarantees. By their very nature, older cameras are just that, old, and their electronics, levers, knobs, buttons, and dials can fail at any time. Let us know if you are returning something, maybe we can reach an agreement short of a full return. Part three - you will always pay for return shipping. Thanks

Will my purchase arrive well packaged?

Always! Carol and I take great care (and pride) in packaging your purchase. We are mindful of being "green" but often times green doesn't protect your package properly. We have been shipping items safely since 2003. We must say, however, that we are not responsible for mishandling by the carrier(s) or loss of an item. Most items and especially valuable items will always have insurance added.

How can I contact your shop?

We are on Etsy almost every day and the best way to get our attention is by starting an Etsy convo. We'll answer you quickly. We're generally in the shop until 11 PM EST.

Does your shop ever do custom orders?

Yes, we do. Just let us know what you want or are looking for and we'll see if we can make it happen.

Does your shop accept a best offer?

We think we have everything priced properly but we are here to make a sale and keep our customers happy. Let us know if you want to make an offer on something. I'm sure we will find a way to reach an accord.
