[SOLD] Nikon 135mm f/2 Ai'd (US/CAN)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Nikon 135mm f/2 Ai'd

Asking Price
$550

Item Location
Santa Fe, NM

Item Description
For sale is a pre-Ai Nikkor 135mm f/2 lens (serial no. 178185) that has been Ai'd. You can read more about the pre-Ai version here. I did the Ai job myself with a Nikon OEM aperture ring replacement kit, so the lens also comes with the original pre-Ai aperture ring. The lens is in excellent condition--perfectly clean glass front and rear, some dust inside, but no more than would be expected from a lens of its age. The body has a few tiny marks and generally shows years of careful use, but it's not beat up in any way. Not a collector's piece, but very, very pretty. Focus is silky smooth, and it's sharp at f/2 with exceptionally smooth bokeh.

Included: Lens, original screw-in front cap, generic high-quality Nikon rear cap, original pre-Ai aperture ring.

Shipping: Included in USA via USPS Priority Insured. WW, ask.

Asking: $550 by PP gift, or add 3%.

Yeah... I love the lens, but it doesn't fit into the "architecture" of my restructuring plan. :/

Look what photography does to us!
