small aperture wide lens for nikon
« on: January 23, 2009, 12:22:32 pm »

Hello does anyone know of a fixed wide angle lens that would cover fx format from 20mm to 28mm with a minimum aperture of over f22?  I know the 24mmPC Nikkor does but I'm looking for something small and light not to mention less than or around €300.  Thanks for your help!

Can't help you directly, but may I ask what's the application you have in mind?

I'm trying to further my project of long exposures from the car on a motorway .... It's not the most vital thing for this particularly as I am using very dark ND filters.

This is the thread from earlier which has an example ...

I would also like to use the lens for precarious work on tall tripods so it needs to be light.

This is cheap, but it might work.  F/32 and inexpensive.... nothing new is better than F/22 that wide.

But that wide of a lens?  Um... You're probably better off getting a dark filter instead to manually drop it a stop or two.

Something like this might work well - a piece of mylar film or colored glass over the lens.

There's only so much a ND filter or two can do.  Then you need heavier "sun glasses" for your camera

Try a pin hole cap. I have had 3 for my M8 with different focal lenght equivalents. I got them from a guy that do some home made addons for the M8.
Here is his mail adress, i donīt know if he is active because it was around 2 years ago.

Welding goggles are very dark, alternately look at medium or large format lenses with an adapter, they can generally be stopped down a lot more.
