Hello everyone and thanks for having me here. I hope this is ok to post in this section.

After many years I am currently selling my old Nikon 35mm film and digital system, but I need your advice for an issue I have encountered.


I have an old Nikon Ai-S Fisheye Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D Lens. The serial number of the lens is 180085. It is the 3 row focus grip model. The online database shows that only 4871 models of this lens were made between Jul 1979 and Feb 1982.

Since I am willing to sell it, I was wondering whether its value would be different from the average online listings commonly associated to this lens - which are around 350-400 GBP for the 'standard' model. Furthermore I was wondering if someone could help me evaluate an estimate for this beautiful old lens.

Many thanks to all,
