p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Rare Nikkor lens??


Is anyone familiar with a Nikkor 1:23 F=30cm Nippon-Kogaku Nr 3001 A lens? It's apparently a very old lens with centimeters instead of millimeters in the description on the front of the lens.

I did some googling - these were most likely lenses made before 1945 and not necessarily for SLR or rangefinder cameras. The Japanese air force had some long fast lenses made. Could be valuable, but 1:32 is really odd. Do you have photos of it?

I have photos but not sure how to post them here. I'm not registered in "Buy Sell" It's 1:23, not 1:32

Does it look like this?

http://collectiblend.com/Lenses/Nikon/300mm-f2.8-Nikkor-ED-.html

I assuming 1:23 is actually 1:2.8 with the left half of the number 8 paint eroded

No, it looks nothing like that, and it's definetley 1:23 Someone suggested it was an old lens perhaps used for Arial Photography.

sounds like something for printing or graphic arts use. It's a very slow lense with a long focal length.

My guess is it's an aerial photography lens.

Probably one of the lenses that fit into these that were mounted underneath planes.

Tom sent me the image to post it here - here's what he is asking about (looks like the one above)

http://didnt.doit.wisc.edu/photo/forum_pix/fredmiranda/old_nikkor_30cm.jpg

and I find it strange that the image looks a lot like the one above was taken in the same room...

There's an article about it in Nikon Historical Society's September 2012 issue, but not sure how you'd get a copy of it:

Paul, i find that very strange also. As i remember though, i think i may have sent it to him also. It doesen't matter now, someone else bought it.

Hello,

I am the one that bought the lens. All the above images were taken from the original Craigslist post by the guy i bought it from. I have contacted Nikon and they think it is a Japanese Aeriel Photography lens but they are still working on it. I have posted some more images here,
http://adammullinsphoto.blogspot.com/

Any help would be appreciated.

If you don't mind, I'm curious what a lens like that cost? And...now that you have it, what do you do with it?

If it is WWII vintage, probably nobody working today would remember it. Nikon might ask retired people. Anyone working during the second war would be in their 80's or 90's.

Please keep us posted if you learn anything.

Just an idea: Contact ""History Detectives" at PBS.

Can anyone comment on the AF speed of these lenses? I need to shoot in a really dark gym for HS basketball, from the baseline, and i'm wondering if this will track a subject running at full speed. I can't afford missed shots. Please reply.
