PC-Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 Pre-AI

£295.00

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

In May 1968, this newly-developed Perspective Control lens replaced the earlier 35mm f/3.5 shift-Nikkor. This new faster version has a scalloped focusing ring and finely ridged aperture and aperture preset rings. A silver-coloured screw on the side is used to shift the lens. The apertures are partially engraved in colour, and a millimetre scale with 12 graduations indicates the displacement of the lens. 12 notches at increments of 30° around the optical axis are used to set the angle of rotation.

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.
