    This "like new" Nikon 20mm f/3.5 Ai-s is a great "unknown" lens made by Nikon in Japan only for a short time in 1981.
    It is extremely small and takes Nikon's standard 52mm filters.
    It has excellent optics and superb all-metal mechanics.

    It works perfectly on all Nikon Full-Frame digital cameras, as well as APS-C cameras and 35mm cameras.

    Optics: 11 elements in 8 groups.
    Multicoated.
    Traditional spherical design.
    Focal Length: 20mm. Used on a DX camera it gives angles of view similar to what a 30mm lens would give on an FX or 35mm film camera.
    Angle of View: 94° on FX and 35mm,, 71° on small-format DX.
    Diaphragm: 7 blades, Stops down to f/22.
    Focus: Manual, minimum distance: 1 foot (0.3m), does not rotate.
    Maximum Reproduction Ratio: 1:10.8.
    Depth-of Field Scale
    Infra-Red Focus Index
    Filter Thread: 52mm, all metal.
    Size: 50.5 x 63.5mm
    Weight: 235g.

    Any dust that appears in these photos is on the outside surface only, not inside the lens.
    This lens is truly equal to a brand new lens.
    Nikon front and rear caps included.
    $375 + $10 shipping

    I had one years ago, it's a great lens, quite small for a 20mm and sharp, sharp sharp. GLWS, Bob.

    Agree, a lovely little lens. Very short focus throw! Doesn't seem to flare at all -- useful for a 20mm.
