Ebay Watch: Nikon’s Much-Coveted 13mm f/5.6 Distortion-Free Lens and More
Nikon 13mm f/5.6 Lens: Buy It Now for $29,999.00
Considered the “Holy Grail” of lenses by Nikon-fanatic Ken Rockwell, this insanely massive wide-angle prime is pricey for a good reason. It is the widest, non-distorting lens in existence—on top of that, only about 350 units were ever made.
In fact, this is the first time I have ever seen one of these for sale…anywhere. The lens was first made as a prototype in 1973, and later produced in three installments including a non-AI version, an AI version and an AI-S version.
So, if you have 30,000 clams to spend, or even slightly less, we highly recommend making Ebayer SHPhoto-gmbh an offer—doing so will automatically make you the envy (and perhaps target), of Nikon fanboys everywhere.
