    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...

    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:

    8mm f/2.8
    13mm f/5.6
    300mm f/2
    1200-1700mm f/5.6-8
    2000mm f/11

    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.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    A beautiful lens for a dookie cam?
