Reflex-Nikkor 1000mm f/11 AI telephoto lens in excellent overall condition, with accessories. This is a manual-focus only lens, with a fixed aperture of f/11. Included is a like new Nikon TC-301 tele-converter, affording an excellent option for astro-photography, with a view of 2000mm.
This classic mirror lens, with a Nikon F mount, is accompanied by the original CL-29 hard case, a removable fast focusing lever and a set of five 39mm filters, which screw in to the back of the lens. The filters (L37c, A2, B2, O56 and ND4x; ultraviolet, light amber, light blue, orange, and 4x neutral density) come in the original CA-2 leather pouch. The pouch and lens cases have slight cracking due to age but are in excellent overall shape, especially inside. The filter pouch and focus-assist lever fit in a space on the underside of the hard case enclosure. The lens has both a built-in a rotating tripod lever and telescopic lens hood. The original screw-in, metal Nikon front lens cap and rear cap are included. It weighs 1,900g overall, or just over four pounds.
The physical appearance of the lens is beautiful, with no dings or dents. Most importantly, the optics; there is no balsam separation of the mirrors, no internal haze, no dust or fungus, and no scratches on the front and rear elements. The ‘F’ lens mount is in like-new condition and focusing is very smooth. The front threads for the lens cap are in excellent shape and there is no wear on the tripod/monopod collar and mount.
With the exception of the slight wear on the exterior of the filter pouch and the CL-29 hard case, this vintage Nikon telephoto lens is in excellent condition. The sample images of the cormorants, river otter and full moon were all made recently on a DSLR. The single image of the moon is the unedited, full frame view (May 17, 2019) made with the lens and TC-301 combo, on a pro DSLR camera... 2000mm @ f/22.
The lens and teleconverter combo is $680. Must be picked up in person and payment made in cash only. No trades. If the ad is still up the lens is still available. Thanks for looking.
