    FS: Nikkor-T ED 360mm f/8

    The Nikkor-T ED 360mm f/8 is the only telephoto lens that made Kerry Thalmann's well-known "Future Classics" list. Its 5-element/4-group design includes one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element, making for truly outstanding performance in a telephoto design. Another unique feature of these lenses is that the single front cell and shutter can be paired with three different rear cells to form a 360mm f/8, a 500mm f/11, or a 720mm f/16, all of which cover 5x7 at f/22 (the image circle is 210mm per Nikon's literature). If you like shallow depth of field, all three focal lengths will just cover 4x5 wide open.

    This particular 360mm f/8 is in very nice, though not flawless, condition, and includes proper caps and the retaining ring. The glass is clean and clear with only the most minor and inconsequential of cleaning marks. It also has the seemingly unavoidable minor internal dust that finds its way into most large-format lenses but thankfully does not seem to affect optical performance. The shutter is factory-marked only for the 360mm and 500mm focal lengths. My Calumet tester says it's about 1/4-stop fast at 1 sec and 1/2 sec, within 1/6 stop from 1/4 sec to 1/30, about 1/3 stop slow at 1/60 and 1/125, and about 3/4 stop slow at 1/250 and 1/400, pretty typical of most Copal 1s I've measured. The factory tolerance is +/-30%, or about 0.4 stops, so this is well within spec except at 1/250 and 1/400 (and you're unlikely to find anyone who can make it much more accurate at the fastest speeds).

    There are some unimportant scuffs and marks on the cell barrels but no dents or dings, and 67mm filters screw in smoothly. The flange focal length is 261mm, so this 360mm is usable with your average wood field camera having 300mm of extension. At 800 grams in its Copal 1 shutter it's not a lightweight, and it's not tiny at 124mm (about 5") overall length, but it's probably the best available long option for a field 4x5.

    Asking $600 plus insured and traceable shipping.
