    Interesting Nikkor 28mm

    Not that I have money to buy the lens but I just never heard anything about this lens :

    It looks like industrial Nikon product.

    I don't care if it's the rarest thing on earth, the pits in the glass make it a $3000 paper weight.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    So is it, or is it not a Luminar clone? (Those will cover 6x9, IIRC)

    lenses like that are designed for very high magnifications and are supposed to be mounted on a bellows. I have no idea what the coverage would be. Where is Dan Fromm when you need him?
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    Look at the link in post #4: 8mm.
    But what is most interesting is reversing it and using it for 6x9. That sounds like lots of fun.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
