    Nikkor-Q 135 f/4

    I'm helping a relative (the widow, kind of) with an estate sale, most good stuff are already gone, but I found this enigmatic lens in a lens bubble, serial number is just above #890000, can't remember exactly. It's in pristine condition, and I have the bubble and special cap. Question is, how do I unload it?

    There was one sold on the bay for $600, and another for $207.5. Are there any other ways of selling it to a collector? The apug ads seems to cater more to users, and this is both rare and kind of hard to use.

    Check to see what it is going for on KEH. That will give you a better idea of fair price and condition.

    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    Sounds like a bellows Nikkor, an old short-mount lens with no focus helicoid:

    Not sure how to help, collecting seems to be frowned on here.

    I have quite a collection of stuff. Especially 35mm stuff which frequently can be had for free. The best way to determine the worth of that lens is by an auction. List it on e-bay.

    These didn't grow on trees. Collectable and useful for anyone with the proper bellows and interest in macro work. Have seen nice work done with older bellows lenses and M4/3s cameras and adapters.

    It seems it could be used for up to 6x9? Weird.
