Interesting Craigslist find

A Nikkor 7.5mm f5.6 Fisheye just popped up on my local CL.

Anyone here actually use one of these? Is it of any use (on a Df) other than as a curiosity/collector's piece?

Without even seeing the listing I am a bit skeptical. Seems too rare to just pop up on Craigslist...but who knows.

If I'm not mistaken, that can only be used with the mirror locked-up...

Definitely a cool lens, can you lock the mirror up on a Df? Should be able to use it on a mirrorless, it's a circular fisheye, I think, so might work.

How much?

Not a bad price for it. Price on ebay is definitely higher than the CL listing

Couple of posts with shots from that lens

Here's the listing if anyone is interested.

Looks like B&H have a used one for $999, so this one does seem to be a relative bargain.

I went to take a look, out of curiosity. Quite a hefty little chunk of glass, and in pretty decent condition given its age. Looked like it has a couple of spots of fungus starting behind the front element, though, sadly.

I do like the look and feel of these old lenses, but this particular one I think might be more interesting to a collector than a photographer.
