I have a 85 mm 1.4 manual focus lens (#199293) as good as new. A very nice piece of Nikon glass. I bought it several years ago but never used it, since I'm more a wide angle guy and don't like making portraits. I'm going through my lenses right now and will sell some shortly to get some money for new equipment. This lens will have to go as well.
Let me know if you're interested and what offer you want to make me, before I put it up for sale on this forum.
The glass is excellent, also the body. No oil leaks, no scratches, no fungus. I wonder if this lens if ever used at all.
Comes with original front and back cover. Shipping will be from The Netherlands, Europe.
Since I never used it, I can't tell you what this kind of lenses is capable of on a MF Nikon camera loaded with B&W film.
To make shure the aperture rings work properly, I tried it on my Digital Nikon D200 (I didn't say that out loud, did I??).
As a small and very unprofessional test, I made one simple shot indoors of an old Nikon F body lying around.
This image came straight out of the camera - no Photoshop tinkering added (only resized for internet).
Send me a PM with your offer if you're interested.
