    Vintage Nikkor 8.5cm f/2 LTM Rangefinder lens (Steve Huff)

    Price: $700.00
    Payment method: PayPal
    Item condition: 9 Shows signs of use, but very clean
    Shipping instructions: Included within North America

    I bought this lens directly from Steve Huff himself; The very lens is reviewed at the link below.

    Vintage Fun: The Classic Nikkor 8.5cm f/2 LTM lens review | STEVE HUFF PHOTOS

    This is the rare "MIOJ" version; It is currently listed at less than I paid, and the M-mount adapter is included!!

    It is beautiful on film and digital; I just find I am not giving it enough use. I am probably going to regret this, as it really is a remarkable piece of vintage glass. It would likely be phenomenal on the Monochrom.

    The glass itself is pristine, with no haze, fungus, or cleaning marks. I can really only see one or two specs of dust between the elements, which do not show up in any of the photos. There is some minor brassing of the chrome finish which shows up in one of the photos below. All-in-all, it is really hard to believe that this lens is over 50 years old! (It was made in "Occupied Japan"!!)

    It will include a Voigtlander M-mount adapter, which brings up the 28/90 framelines (Perfect 85 mm framelines in the case of the Zeiss Ikon!)

    Paypal fees and shipping are included within North America; international shipping extra.

    Thanks in advance for looking--please do not hesitate to contact with questions!

    All the best,
    -M.

    Yes, check out some of Ashwin's work.
