A discovery of a classic lens – Fun with mirrors.
The 500mm f8 Reflex-Nikkor lens … Beautifully built and a pleasure to use.
This classic lens was a real find at the local camera fair in Frome, somerset.
This lens that dates back to its first launch in 1968! I don’t think mine is that old, although the case may be telling another story. If Your hung up on super sharp images, auto focus etc this is not for you. Hand held photography is a challenge to…..
This lens is for a unique kind of creative…Ill be back with some images soon
