Nikon Fisheye-Nikkor 6mm f2.8

The most fisheye ever, a collector's dream capable of 220 degrees circle, the lens you put a camera on.

optical scheme is 12 elements in 9 groups.

This monster lens was practically made to order, in the original F-mount since the introduction date, march 1972 in the AI bayonet since 1977, sn starting from -628001, AI-S variation from 1982 s/n-629001.

Can you help me?

This entry is incomplete. I’m looking for good pictures, both iconic on white background (front, top, side, angled) and “real life” ones. More important I’m looking for correct information supported by facts, proof, articles. I’m also looking for manuals, flyers, catalogs, etc. I can use it as a reference or I can share it here. Credits will be given.

Images and credits
Many of the images I use here are found on the web, on auction sites, etc. I always try to track down the authors, ask permission and give them proper credits. Sometimes It is not possible, due to more than 22 years of research, so, if you recognize your pictures please contact me, I’ll be more than happy to give proper credits or take it down if you prefer.
