Originally announced at Photokina in 1974, this lens has barely aged at all. Featuring a rectilinear design (meaning straight lines don’t get all curvy and distorted), this ultra-wide lens works on all kinds of cameras, including the Nikon D800, with which the below photos were taken. This retro lens still makes great images, and it just looks cool on your camera.




Nikon F5, $500.00

Do you miss film sometimes? The ruggedly built Nikon F5 utilizes 3D Color Matrix Metering with a 1,005-pixel RGB sensor to read a scene’s color, as well as brightness and contrast, for beautiful, colorful film images. It houses powerful motors and CPU that enable a high-speed film advance of up-to 8 fps, even with auto Focus Tracking operations turned on. Mount with AF-D, AF-G, AF-I, AF-S and AF VR NIKKOR lenses and enjoy fully operational AF and metering.

Don’t wait. We only have one of each in stock. Call the store at 866-940-3686 to place your order.
