SPECIALISING IN THE EXCEPTIONAL
Nikon stunned the photographic world at Photokina1 in 1970 by introducing a 220º fisheye Nikkor with an astonishing speed of f/2.8. It is the world’s most extreme wide-angle lens to cover the 24 x 36mm image area (at the time) with a massive glass dome which dwarfs the camera attached. The 6mm is for scientific and industrial applications and special effects when shooting portraits, architecture and interiors, etc. Lens production began in March 1972 and was only made available to special order. 6mm f/2.8 Fisheye-Nikkor lens serial no. 628024, Lens construction: 12 elements in 9 groups, Picture angle: 220º, Diaphragm: Automatic, Aperture scale: f/2.8-f/22 on both standard and aperture-direct-readout scales, Weight: 5200g, Dimensions: 236mm dia. x 171mm long (overall); 160mm extension from lens flange, Distance scale: graduated in metres and feet from 0.25m (0.9ft) to infinity (∞), Filters: built-in skylight (L1BC), medium yellow (Y48), deep yellow (Y52), orange (O56), and red (R60) Front lens cap: Slip-on, delivered in a rugged metal case.
