UPDATE: All four lenses are now available on eBay via these links:
As mentioned in my last update, I’m getting ready to list a few of my old lenses I no longer need in my kit on eBay. As I like to do when I sell off old gear, I will leave this post up for about a week if any readers would like to purchase one or all of the lenses before the eBay listing goes live (email contact is A-ok!). After they are up on eBay, this post will be edited as needed. Of the four lenses, I have written a full lens review on three of them:
Of course, my reviewing style and technique (as well as photographic skill in general) changed over the years. I’ve had the Nikon 105mm ever since I first got into photography (its review is almost six years old!), while my Rokinon 16mm is just from Fall of last year.
Regular readers to this site may not recognize the last lens in the photo, which is a very old Nikkor-S Auto 50mm f/1.4, from when Nikon labeled their lenses as Nippon Kogaku! These same readers likely also know that I take care of my photo gear over the years. I used these lenses, for sure, but never abused them.
All four lenses are perfectly functional, with most signs of use manifesting as cosmetic marks. There is light dust on the front/rear elements, and they have all been carefully cleaned by myself. No scratches, no fungus, maybe a tad of haze around the edges on a couple of the lens’ elements. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, though.
Rokinon 16mm f/2 (Nikon F-mount)
Nikon 85mm f/1.4 AI-s with HN-20 Lens Hood
Nikkor-S Auto 50mm f/1.4
Nikon 105mm f/1.8 AI-s
That’s all for this quick post, guys and gals, thanks fro dropping by! Barring any reasonable offers for the lenses, these will go up on eBay next week, May 13 around 7:00 p.m. Central Standard Time. As always, have a great day!
