  1. ¡Coño qué cosa más rara!, supongo que por el factor de conversión digital/analógico equivale a una "antiguo" 18mmm. A ver si nos muestras que fotografías es capaz de captar este aparatejo.

  2. On a full frame DSLR (D700, D800 5DMkII & III etc) it would still be 6mm. On a
    APS-C sensor it would be around 9mm... Still not too shabby! ha

  3. Really, it´s an analogical camera, i didn´t read the date of manufacture. I want one!

  4. All nikon analogue lenses will work with Nikon DSLRs. The lens can be taken off the camera that you see it mounted on in the pictures above.
