[SOLD] I just acquired a 125mm F2.5 Voigtlander (true Canon mount) for Macro work, and have to pay for that somehow.
I am looking at this 120mm Macro Nikkor [SOLD] in my hand. I acquired it from a fellow who had been working at MIT (USA) for many years and was closing his lab. He had obtained it in 1998 or so, along with the entire Nikon macrophot package. He was selling a couple of the macro Nikkors, and I purchased them (including the 65mm F4.5 macro).
This lens is in mint shape. It has the original Nikon front (screw in metal) and rear (twist on plastic) caps. The metal top cap says: "NIKKOR Japan". The rear cap reads "Nikon Made in Japan". These are very important to collectors and seem as valuable as the lens itself. It is a true macro (not micro) lens by Nikon designation.
It has the red band and writing: Macro-NIKKOR 1:6.3 f = 12cm. The serial number is 15385. It has mint glass and so far as I can see, a mint body. I used this lens 2-3 times...and use the 65mm macro (F4.5) a lot more.
You can use this lens on a Canon body (I have) as well as Sony/Pentax - with the appropriate adapter.
The problem with a lens like this is how to value it? It comes up so infrequently on the used market... How about $1525 including shipping and Paypal in the continental USA. If you use Paypal gift, deduct 2.9% (so total $1475). If that is too much (and what charge isn't?) please suggest an alternate price that seems reasonable.
I am willing to sell to certain parts of Europe and Asia - contact me directly.
