55mm f/1.2 Nikkor-S, pre-AI, scalloped focus barrel

£495.00

The item photographed may not be the actual model but is used for illustrative purposes only.

Despite the large aperture of f/1.2, various aberrations are corrected to the highest degree. Ordinarily, the existing flare increases as the lens aperture becomes larger. However, in this lens, flares are minimized so a sharp image of good contrast can be obtained even at full aperture. The brightness of the screen image and the shallow depth of filed enable precise focusing. Suited for general photography and also highly efficient for indoor and night colour photography with flash.
Picture angle: 43°, Filter thread: 52mm, Weight: 425g

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
