Nikon 80-200mm f4 AIS Zoom Lens For Sale

Nikon has always had a reputation for making some of, if not the finest, zoom lenses in the 70/80 – 200mm range. This lens is no exception. It was the ultimate manual focus lens of this type, and is of the “push/pull” design – featuring a single ring for both zooming and focussing.

Nikon’s manual focus AIS lenses were renowned for being close to mechanical perfection, and both the zooming and focussing movements of this lens are silky smooth (one of the reasons why these lenses are valued so highly by videographers). This lens is also razor-sharp optically, and can be used not only on all the Nikon film cameras, but also many modern F mount digital slrs. The following Nikon DSLRs provide rangefinder-assisted manual focus, matrix exposure metering, and correct metadata once you have set the maximum aperture of the lens in the camera’s menus: D200, D300 series, D500, D600/D610, D700, D750, D780, D800/D810/D850 series, D7000/D7100/D7200, D1 series, D2 series, D3 series, D4 series, D5 and D6.

The diaphragm mechanism in this lens is working perfectly, and the optics are in absolutely mint condition – with no marks or scratches, fungus or even dust visible inside the lens at all. Cosmetically, there are some small marks on the lens barrel in one place, but otherwise, the lens is in excellent condition.

I have owned this lens from new (purchase price £800 in 1992!), and it comes with its original box, Nikon warranty card and manual. I am also including a Hoya 62mm UV filter (the lens has always been protected by a filter), and a metal Nikon HN-23 screw-in lens hood.

This lens is for sale at £300.00.

It is in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, and inspection of the lens in person is highly recommended. I am also willing to ship it anywhere in the UK (subject to  extra carriage charges).

Please contact me for further details.

Fitzalan Square, Sheffield 1983 – Limited Edition Print

This is a traditional black and white photographic print which I am selling as part of a limited edition of only 50 copies. It shows the old telephone boxes next to the Post Office in Fitzalan Square in Sheffield on a murky day in October 1983, with Hyde Park Flats in the distance.

This is a completely traditional (analogue) photographic print. It was shot on 35mm Ilford Pan F black and white film, which I processed myself. It was then hand-printed by me on Agfa Record Rapid fibre-based paper for archival permanence. The print has a natural warm tone from the chloro-bromide paper, which I feel suits the subject matter.

Each print measures 16″x12″ including borders (the actual image area is approx. 15½”x11″), and each one is signed and numbered by myself.

Copies cost £75.00 each (including postage within the UK). Please contact me to order a copy.

Stylish Traditional Wedding Album in Grey and Black

The luxurious Girona album was handmade in England by Spicer Hallfield – the UK’s largest wedding album manufacturer before they went out of business. It was one of their top-of-the-range Elizabethan albums, all of which were bookbound albums with heavyweight slip-in leaves.

The album measures approx 12″x11¾” externally and has a padded grey leather cover, with a decorative silver chain pattern in the centre. It has 20 black slip-in leaves (ie. 40 sides) with grey burl edges to hold up to 40 9½” x 9½” prints. Prints simply slide in – no adhesives required. This makes it a very simple matter to assemble the album in the first place, or swop individual prints in just a matter of seconds. It also makes it an ideal sample album for when making an impression is really important. It also comes with its own presentation box.

Although designed primarily for weddings, the album is equally suitable for other types of photography – such as portraiture, event, still life or product shots.

The album is new, and I have only one example of it. I am selling it at just £50.00.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in this album. It is for sale in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

I am happy to send the album by post, but please be advised that (due to its substantial weight) carriage charges will be quite high, and will be in addition to the price above.

See here for details of the other handmade wedding albums, or traditional wedding albums with overlays that I also have for sale at discounted prices.
