How much is the polarising filter for it?
I would hope it would be an internal or a rear element type of filter.
As I remember reading somewhere years ago, some people used this to check sewer / underground pipes / tunnels, but don't quote me.
That article is from 2010, that same lens (although I am not sure if it is the same serial number), is ironically for sale at Grays of Westminster for a mere $161,000...
An article re this yesterday too:
Nikon made another lens in this focal length, the 6mm f/5.6. It required mirror lockup but it was a fraction of the size. Both versions of the 6mm have built-in filter turrets.
Other lenses to Google if you're bored:
Using this lens to check sewers? Right... perhaps a National Geographic shoot on sewer flora and fauna.
I actually did hear they were used for astrophotography at the South Pole... 35mm is so small for astrophotography though. I did get look through one similar to this (6/5.6?) back in the 1980's.
This is an excellent lens for taking photographs of the top front part of your shoots in almost every photograph. That allows one to track which pair of shoot were worn during the day.
What a waste
A beautiful lens for a dookie cam?
NASA ever use something like this?
Nah, the astronauts already knew what their boots looked like. The widest lens that was used on the Moon was the Hasselblad SWC with the 36mm Biogon lens.
". This series of lenses were originally developed for special scientific and industrial use where wider-than-180° picture coverage is required in surveillance work, photographing the interiors of pipes, boilers, conduits, cylinder bores and other constricted areas. But in applications such as advertising and commercial photography they are used extensively for dramatic effects"
Well my memory was a "bit" off but its essentially the same idea.
I remember going to a Nikon show at Detroit Camera in 1972 and seeing one of these. Quite the lens, but very specialized.
You shoot your shoots? I guess it's better than shooting your shorts.
Well if I included my knees in the photographs, then it would only be the tops of the knees. Hence I would be shooting my high knees!
Yeah, nobody wants to shoot their shorts-very distressing.
A lens like this would be as much use to me as as an ash tray on a motor bike.
My wife said no.
I did that once... but that was a different time and place.
That lens is huge! What kind of lens cap would you have for that thing?!
A satellite dish.
The lens cap for it is show at the back of the photograph,http://www.petapixel.com/2010/05/26/uber-rare-6mm-nikon-fisheye-lens-on-ebay-can-see-behind-itself/ you can also use it as a soup plate
Glass up the elephant's a--?
Would you want your lens back afterwards? In the large animal veterinary word, it's called "green arming" if they had to do it to a cow. The exam involves long gloves. Camera optional.
