About Nikkor Lenses
This selection of Manual focus 70's and 80's Nikkor lenses listed above has been specifically collected in preference over the newer Nikkor manual and auto focus lenses due to their more organic rendering and longer focus barrel rotation. They are quite closely colour matched, meaning there is no noticeable difference in colour rendition from one focal length to the other. The slightly vintage rendering is still very sharp, and what you'd expect of a quality prime lens. Their organic feel is perhaps due to a slightly lower contrast than modern lenses, whilst close focus performance is still excellent. Each lens has a large custom machined 90mm diameter focus gear for added focus rotation.

These beautiful old cinevised Nikkors are testament to why Nikon lenses where No.1 with photographers in their hey-day of the 70's and 80s. Older Nikon AI and pre-AI lenses also have a longer focus rotation than newer manual focus AIS lenses. Each of these lenses, although some of which are around 40 years old, have multicoated optics, manual de-clicked aperture, and have been carefully sourced for their pristine optical and mechanical condition, and colour matching between focal lengths. They are lightweight and compliment the new generation digital cinema cameras, adding a bit more feel to what can be a somewhat clinical image capture from modern sensors.

The focus rings of Nikkor lenses however do turn in the opposite direction to Cine lenses and Canon stills lenses. As such I have available a reversing lens gear (listed above) that can be mounted on a 15mm or 19mm rod. When placed between the lens gear and the follow focus gear, this corrects focus rotation to the standard cine direction. When using a remote focus however this issue can easily be addressed by simply reversing the knob direction, a standard feature on all newer remote focuses, including my listed Heden Carat.

These Nikkor lenses all come with the Canon EF Mount to be interchangeable with the other EF mount lenses I offer. Alternatively the Canon EF mount can be removed and the lenses used on any Nikon F Mount. All lenses focus through their full range to infinity.

These classic Nikkor lenses provide a great aesthetic alternative and a good lower cost option. They stand up optically for any production whether destined for the small or big screen, and for weight sensitive applications such as Octocopters and gimbal rigs, they are significantly lighter than cine lenses without the problems associated with using autofocus stills lenses in motion picture production.

This lens support works well with the Canon EF 70-200mm lens, utilising the lens' built on support collar.
