    It was described on Photography in Malaysia, with interesting note:
    "Interestingly, the 6mm f2.8 Fisheye Nikkor was introduced almost at the same time with the longest reach Nikkor lense - the 2,000mm f/11 Reflex Nikkor."
    That would be another interesting lens... on any cam really.

    What size filters does it take? :biggrin:

    Another beauty from the golden age of lens design. Unlike this beauty, I seriously doubt that a single one of our current lenses will be usable in 40 years.

    It would seem to effect pocketability a wee bit.

    ... On a game-changer camera, the Nikon F. Wish I still had my F's. (I doubt if any of our digital cameras will be useable in 50 years.)

    If you can afford the lens, then your pockets are deep enough. :)

    I saw one of the Nikon fisheyes at Nikon House when it was still in Rockefeller Center in the 70s. It was huge. They took it out of the case to show someone and somehow managed to get a finger on it. The staff freaked.
