Items for Sale

I have been researching and collecting Nikon lenses for many years, and aquired some duplicates and items that I no longer require. All lenses for sale here are in perfect working condition with clear optics, unless otherwise noted. I try to describe the condition as accurately as possible. Click on the link to see pictures. I haven't had time to take pictures of most items yet, but if you are interested in any lens I am happy to take some.

It is has the same optics as the previous Nikkor-Q.C 135/3.5, but with modern styling. Image quality is similar to the famous 105/2.5, with good sharpness and a beautiful smooth rendition.
