CONDITION:

Lens is in excellent condition, SN# 36625. Several small cosmetic marks on barrel, please take a careful look at photos. Glass and coating is nearly perfect and quite clean, and in excellent functional condition for all practical purposes.

No fungus, haze, or separation. Aperture blades are clean and perfect, and mechanically perfect in function.

As with most lenses, there are some tiny bits of internal dust, which do not affect images. No scratches on glass. May be tiny wisps on coating, but if so, they are too small for me to see. Considering the most minor details, it becomes subjective, and my description is more fair than most I’ve seen.

It is quite rare to find a lens that has perfect glass, with no dust or cleaning marks in the coating. Such tiny features do not affect the images– lenses do not project bits of dust. Every part of the lens contributes to every part of the image. The lens offered here is an excellent sample, tested precisely, and is ready to use.

No returns on this lens, due to costs and risk involved. Lens is tested, perfectly functioning, and is exactly as described. Please do research before buying, or inquire for more information.

Christmas Tree Ornaments with the 85mm Repro-Nikkor F1.0 Macro Industrial Lens

Decorative garland taken with Repro-Nikkor 85mm at F1.0 marked aperture, Nikon D700.

Decorative garland taken with Repro-Nikkor 85mm at F1.0 marked aperture, Nikon D700.

On December 24, 2009 a package arrived in the mail that contained a long-awaited macro lens. After about 6 years of searching for the 85mm F1.0 Repro-Nikkor, I now finally owned a sample of this special industrial lens.

I had seen only a handful of photos taken by others with this rare lens, and I was curious to see what it would do. The image qualities of this lens exceeded my expectations in a big way! Over the next few days I photographed a few subjects indoors, as well as flowers that were blooming down the road from me. You can view some of the first photos I took in 2009 with this lens in the Repro-Nikkor galleries “Discovery”, and “Flora”.

As a tribute to the 3rd anniversary of owning this lens, yesterday (December 24, 2012) I spent a few hours photographing ornaments on Christmas trees on public display around town. This lens has easily earned its position as my favourite specialized macro lens. I hope you might enjoy the photos, and in the “Galleries”, you will see a new gallery, “85mm F1.0 Repro-Nikkor Tree Ornaments” (link at the end of this post). Images in the gallery are larger and better for viewing.

Performance is spectacular with the aperture set anywhere in the range from F1 to F8. Of course, at F1.0 there are some minor aberrations, but better than anything else I’ve seen at F1.0 (marked), and by F2.8 it is about perfect.

Aside from its maximum marked aperture of F1.0, the most remarkable thing about this lens is the way it renders out-of-focus objects (often referred to as “bokeh”). At F1.0 to F2.8, the depth of field is extremely shallow, eliminating distractions in the foreground and background. At these large apertures, the bokeh rendering is soft with no harsh qualities at all, and it is sometimes more like a painting than a photograph. Because it has these qualities while also being an incredibly sharp and well-corrected lens, it is a unique creative tool.

However, this lens comes with a strict limitation: it can only be used at 1.0x magnification, no more and no less. (There are some exceptions to this, and I’ll save that for a future blog post.) But within the constraint of 1.0x, and with the unique characteristics of this lens, there are more possibilities than I had ever imagined.

Photography with Industrial Nikkor Lenses & Other Special Gear

Frost crystals on grass. Repro-Nikkor 85mm set at F1.4, Nikon D700.

 

Some years ago while I was working with forestry biologist Bob Duncan on an insect photography project, I was bitten by a bug.  It wasn’t the kind of bite that made me jump, or swat at an insect, or go rushing for the calamine lotion.  Instead it was the kind of bite that led me off into new directions with my photography.

I was bitten by the dreaded lens bug, and it has left its mark on me ever since.  I began to search for lenses with special qualities, different from what could be achieved with the already excellent Micro-Nikkors I was using at the time.

Initially I began to look for lenses to use with the Nikon PB-4 tilt-shift bellows.  I needed a bellows lens, or short-mount lens, which would allow me to use tilt-shift perspective control from infinity to close-up.  After a bit of patience I found a 105mm f4 Nikkor-P short mount bellows Nikkor for sale.  This soon evolved into a quest for several rare lenses especially useful for close-up photography (ie., micro and macro photography, near and beyond 1:1 reproduction). Large format and other special gear followed.

 

105mm f/4 Nikkor-P short mount lens. Allows close-up to infinity focus on a bellows.

 

55mm f/1.2 Nikkor industrial CRT lens with BR-15 adapter on Nikon D700.

 

At the time I had been aware of a website that was highly regarded (and still is) by Bjørn Rørslett.  I took notice of some of the unusual lenses that Bjørn mentioned on his site, most notably the industrial Nikkors such as the CRT Nikkor, the Ultra-Micro-Nikkors, the Macro-Nikkors, and the Repro-Nikkor.

Soon after, I discovered another remarkable website by Michio Akiyama called “Red Book Nikkor”, which also had information about these rare lenses.   These lenses had special qualities including high resolution, excellent corrections for aberrations, and in some cases very fast maximum apertures while maintaining excellent image quality.

Over the years since then I’ve acquired some of these lenses, and photographed with them extensively.  Through this site, I’ll share my work with these lenses and other gear. Often this will be with the goal of showing some of their qualities, sometimes doing comparisons and writing reviews.  But most of all, it will be for the real reason why I do any of this in the first place– to create and share images that might be enjoyed by some.

This blog and website will be updated frequently. In the galleries you will see photos of this gear, and photos taken with these special lenses. I’ll be adding much more, and I intend to post info about all the lenses and gear I use. You can follow me on Twitter for updates, and share my info and links if you like. I look forward to new discoveries in photography, and to sharing the knowledge with others. Thanks for visiting. Stay tuned…

Michaelmas daisy, Aster novi-belgii. Repro-Nikkor 85mm set at F1.0, Nikon D700.

SOLD: 28mm F1.8 Ultra-Micro-Nikkor lens – late version e-line with green serial number (last one of this version I have for sale)

28mm f/1.8 Ultra-Micro-Nikkor lens — late version e-line

NEW INFO ABOUT THE 28MM ULTRA-MICRO-NIKKOR:

• My most recent findings with the Nikon D800e show the advantage of this lens with high resolution cameras. The case will be similar with the Nikon D800 and D600/D610, because high-resolution sensors are needed to get the most of these lenses when they are used near their optimum apertures.  Despite the small effective apertures at 10x magnification, there are significant gains in resolution to be achieved using this lens with cameras of higher resolution and smaller pixel pitch than the Nikon D700.  Much of the information below applies to DSLR cameras in general, particularly full-frame cameras.

• Please be aware that in later years there were two versions of the 28mm Ultra-Micro-Nikkor e-line lens made, one with a 4mm and one with an 8mm circle of high resolution. The 8mm version has 4x the area of high resolution. From all available evidence, this is the latest 8mm version, from measuring the front glass diameter at approx 26.5mm,  according to the diagram specifications in the Nikon Ultra-Micro-Nikkor PDF available at the website here:

http://savazzi.freehostia.com/download/manuals/Ultra%20Micro%20Nikkor.pdf

Threaded adapters and other custom mounting of lenses is available, please inquire.

******************************************************

** See Galleries for photos taken with this lens. **

 Ice crystals are at approx 5x, and knife blade shot at approx 8x with Nikon D700. White and blue ruler photo is at 8x, approx 4.6 mm field of view on D700. Aperture set at F4 on lens (~F36 effective aperture), ~2 second exposure, mirror lockup, using only tripod and extension tubes. 

This lens is the sharpest macro lens I have tested at 8x and higher magnifications. It performs superbly at quite a wide range– about 8x to at least 20x. (Haven’t yet tested higher than 20x, but there’s no drop in image quality at 20x.) It performs well at somewhat lower magnifications, depending on factors such as subject matter and sensor size.

I have recently compared this lens against several other macro lenses, using the Nikon Multiphot. It easily out-resolves the 19m and 35mm Macro-Nikkor lenses, the 16mm Zeiss Luminar (at 14x), and the cine lenses I tested made by Kern and Kodak.

This is the last sample I have for sale of this late version (green serial number) of 28mm Ultra-Micro-Nikkor. It performs identically to the sample I am keeping for my own photography, and is in similar condition.

** SHIPPING CHARGE for this item will be as quoted for Express Mail with tracking & insurance. **

******************************************************

Lens only. No adapters included, but I may have them available separately– please inquire. No lens caps included, but they are available third party.

I will consider reasonable offers, and I am happy to answer questions. I absolutely respect privacy regarding any sale.

– All photos are of the actual lenses, taken by me

– All lenses I sell are examined and tested carefully

Please see photos. If you are particular about the finest details of the condition of this item, please ask questions before bidding.

******************************************************

CONDITION:

All my items are from a clean, non-smoking environment.

Lens is in excellent condition, SN# 295065. Several small cosmetic marks on barrel, please take a careful look at photos. Glass and coating is excellent and quite clean, and in excellent functional condition for all practical purposes.

No fungus, haze, or separation. Aperture blades are clean and perfect, and mechanically perfect in function.

As with most lenses, there are some tiny bits of internal dust, which do not affect images. No scratches on glass. May be tiny wisps on coating, insignificant and difficult to see. Considering the most minor details, it becomes subjective, and my description is more fair than most I’ve seen.

It is quite rare to find a lens that has perfect glass, with no dust or cleaning marks in the coating. Such tiny features do not affect the images– lenses do not project bits of dust. Every part of the lens contributes to every part of the image. The lens offered here is a good sample, tested precisely, and is ready to use.

No returns on this lens, due to costs involved. Lens is tested, perfectly functioning, and is exactly as described. Please do research before buying. If you have questions or concerns, please feel wecome to ask.

MORE TECHNICAL INFO:

Ultra-Micro-Nikkor 28mm f1.8 e-line high-resolution industrial lens. Late version (I believe this is the last version of the 28mm f1.8, from all information available.)

Macro use only. This lens is not made for infinity focus. This lens can also easily be adapted to Canon or other brands.

For use reverse-mounted only, on SLR or other cameras. Can be adapted to Nikon cameras with two adapters– not included. Requires a 39mm to 40.5mm EL-Nikkor reversing adapter, plus a 39mm Leica to Nikon F-mount adapter (known as the Nikon BR-15). The 39mm Leica to F-mount is also available from 3rd party manufacturers.

If this lens is reverse-mounted directly onto a Nikon F-mount camera, with adapters described above and no extra extension, the magnification ratio is about 3.6x. If approx 190mm extension is added, magnification is approx 10x, which is the optimum for this lens. A bellows and a sturdy stand or tripod can be used for this. To reach 20x, you will need about 465mm bellows extension. These are measured values, approximate.

I have tested several 28mm Ultra Micro Nikkor lenses with a Nikon D700, on a Nikon Multiphot, and can verify that the performance is excellent, as expected. Mirror lockup must be used, unless very high shutter speeds are used. Even with mirror lockup on a Multiphot, camera shake can occur at shutter speeds below 1/500. Bright lights and clean high-ISO are helpful.

At 10x magnication, the field is flat, and the resolution approaches the theoretical limit of physics. This lens is close to diffraction-limited at all apertures, though the image quality is improved for general photography if stopped down to f2.8 – F4.  The lens also performs well outside this range, depending on your choice of compromises, as with most lenses.  Beyond f4 diffraction is the only significant issue.

Although the lens is optimized for e-line, 546 nm wavelength, Nikon made no claims about performance outside its targeted wavelength– but it does perform well outside of specifications. I have tested and compared these lenses at all apertures, and at various magnifications between 3.6x and 20x.

At the 10X optimum magnification, when reversed, the 28mm UMN lens will ‘see’ an 8mm subject circle at 600 lp/mm, and project it to an 80mm image circle with a minimum of 60 lp/mm resolution across the image circle. The central 43mm circle (full frame 35mm) has higher resolution– I can email you the info in the spec sheet, if you like.

On a full-frame camera, the 28mm UMN has superb performance from about 8x to about 20x. Below 8x, the corners begin to show softness or distortion on full frame 35mm or FX, probably due to field curvature because it is somewhat outside the optimum this lens is designed for. This lens will almost certainly perform very well beyond 20x, but I have not tested beyond 20x.

At lower magnifications, from 3.6x to 8x, the 28mm UMN performs good to excellent for many subjects, especially when stopped down a bit more. At the lower range of magnifications, there is some distortion and field curvature in the corners, but for subjects that don’t extend deep into the corners, this is not a major issue. On a DX format camera, edge problems will be much less significant, even at 3.6x.

At all magnifications between 3.6x to 20x, there is no significant vignetting, even on FX full frame. Working distance varies from about 16mm at 3.6x to about 9mm at 20x.

My subjective comments, for visible light spectrum, based on careful tests and comparisons:

– At 10x, at apertures wider than f4, the Ultra-Micro-Nikkor is noticeably sharper than the 35mm Macro-Nikkor. At f4, the 28mm Ultra-Micro-Nikkor has similar performance to the 35mm f4.5 Macro-Nikkor wide open. As you stop down either lens, they are approximate parallel in sharpness, and resolution gradually decreases due to diffraction. All lenses are affected by the limits of diffraction.

– At (or near) wide open, resolution is highest, but the specular highlights have a bit of colour fringing due mainly to longitudinal colour shift of out-of-focus elements (this is not surprising, and occurs to varying degrees with most lenses wide open, including the Macro-Nikkors). As you progressively stop down, this lens produces an increasingly clean image (peak is approx f4), and contrast is excellent throughout.

Be aware that with a perfect lens, effective aperture defines the limit for resolution. Effective aperture is approximately calculated by this simplified formula:

EA = Lens Aperture x (1 + Magnification)

(The entrance and exit pupils are not the same size — so this is an approximation of effective aperture.)

Considering that the Nikon D700 has large pixels, diffraction-limited at around f16, resolution gains cannot easily be made by using a camera with smaller pixel pitch, at such high magnifications. Because of diffraction at these high magnifications, it is of great advantage to use a lens with high resolution at large apertures, such as the 28mm Ultra-Micro-Nikkor.  My recent findings with the D800e reveal significant advantages in resolution when using this lens.

I have used the 28mm Ultra-Micro-Nikkor outdoors, with camera carefully handheld (hand braced on sturdy substrate). The lens was directly reverse-mounted on a Nikon D700, at f2 – 2.8 lens aperture, approx 3.6x magnification. High ISO was used to reduce camera shake. Results are very good, though technique requires patience.
