Macro-Nikkor lens 35mm SN36625 for bellows or Nikon Multiphot

Macro-Nikkor lens 35mm SN36625 for bellows or Nikon Multiphot


• One of the very best optics ever developed for magnifications of 4x to 22x on 35mm DSLR, or 8x to 22x on formats up to 4″ x 5″. Rare lens, superb performance.

• Macro use only. This lens is not capable of infinity focus. This lens can be adapted to Nikon, Canon or other brands. For use with extension tubes or bellows, or with a Nikon Multiphot. For lower magnifications in the range of this lens on 35mm size sensor, a long bellows is not required.

• Lens plus adapter is included for mounting to DSLR systems (RMS thread to 39mm Leica is included. Also requires a 39mm Leica to DSLR adapter, which are available elsewhere).

• Lens and adapter will be shipped in a protective Nikon plastic bubble (EL-Nikkor), with additional bubble wrap.

• Excellent+ cosmetic condition. Glass is perfect, or practically so. No scratches, fungus, separation, or other flaws. Some tiny dust inside which does not affect performance; this minor mount of dust exists in ALL the industrial Nikkor lenses that I have seen. Performance is tested and is 100%.

• Please feel welcome to contact us if you have more questions.

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.
