Lenses
Our lens collection varies as does our camera collection. Many of our lenses are classic or vintage, along with modern higher speed lenses for fast focusing. The age range of out collection is approximately from 1975 to the 2010’s. We keep a collection of some early manual focus glass, sometimes because of the quality, of simply because of the cost.

Sorted by Release Year. Special use lenses at the end.

JCPenney 80mm-200mm f/4.5 no.8516061 for Nikon F Mount

This is one of those lenses I had to pick up just to have. Growing up shopping in both Sears and JCPenney and already having a Sears lens in the collection, when I spotted a JCPenney lens (that looked like decent glass) on the table at my local camera shop (yes we still have those in Pittsburgh) – I had to grab it. It was a Nikon F, so it will eventually be used.
