An Aladdin’s Cave of Second-hand Nikon


Following a very successful trip to Japan and a period of intense buying of second-hand Nikon, we now have a replenished second-hand department, literally bulging at the seams with many very popular items currently in stock, including professional bodies such as the D4, D3X, D800, D700, D600 and D300, as well as highly-desirable Nikkor lenses such as the AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G, the 17-35mm f/2.8D, the 24-70mm f/2.8G, the 70-200mm f/2.8G VR IF-ED, the 300mm f/4D and the 600mm f/4G VR, amongst many others.

For anyone looking for a 35mm Nikon camera body, we also now have second-hand examples of the Nikon F, F2, F3, F4, F5 and F6 models. Then too, there are fine examples of the FM3A, FM2, FM2n, FM2/T, FM, FE2, FA and numerous others.

  1. I would probably say the best option is a good used d700 with warranty if possible. The d7000 new is a steal a present, even when the price of d7100 drops I can’t see the d7000 going for much less than £500 second hand. No one is going to sell a great condition d7000 at present for £350-400, its too good a camera to let go of for that price and would be better to keep as a second body. I can see used d7000 prices jumping back up after the cash back offer finishes. With the lens you have got the d700 would be perfect especially for landscapes, portraits etc. you may find the 70-200 a little short for wildlife unless you get really close.

    13mm f/5.6 Nikkor AIS (ITEM SOLD BUT DETAILS RETAINED HERE DUE TO ADVERTISEMENT WHICH APPEARED IN THE AP AND WIDESPREAD INTEREST). VERY RARE! One of the “holy grails” of Nikon lenses, being offered secondhand for the first time by Grays of Westminster. The 13mm f/5.6 Nikkor ultra-wide-angle lens was introduced in March 1976 in a pre-AI type lens mount. This extraordinary lens has only ever been available to special order. The 13mm f/5.6 covers an angle of 118º. It weighs in at 1200 grams and represents the widest rectilinear lens available for the 35mm format. It is 4 inches long (10.2cm), with an aperture range from f/5.6 to f/22. It has 16 elements in 12 groups; the front element has a diameter of almost 11cm and is surrounded by a fixed ‘petal’ style lens hood. It has a floating rear element design, CRC close-range correction, a rectilinear element design for straight line rendition and can focus down to one foot. In 1977 the lens was updated to the AI standard, and in March 1982 the third version was introduced with the AIS type mount with four x 39mm (rear bayonet mount) filters: Skylight, Orange, Amber and Blue in a CL-14 case. It was designed by Mr. Ikuo Mori of the 1st Optical Section, Optical Designing Department at Nikon Optical Japan. Apparently only about 350 of these lenses were ever made. “It is Nikon’s greatest lens because not only is it big and supremely expensive, it is Nikon’s, and perhaps photography’s, greatest lens because it lets us make photographs we can make no other way.” Ken Rockwell.
