Nikkor 1960s lens service manual sought

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by NK Guy, Nov 11, 2021.

  1. Super-duper long shot... but would anyone have a copy of the Nikkor 8mm f/8 fisheye lens service manual? Or has anyone been a repair tech in a previous age, and has worked on one? Thank you!

  2. Not sure if this is what you want. It seems you need to page past the Japanese version to see English. Good luck.

    PS Oops, it's for f/2.8. Try Googling, you may be able to find it. Or write to Nikon - long shot but who knows. Good luck.

  3. 8mm f/8?
    That's basically a door-viewer.
    Does it even have a focus ring?
     
  4. Nope. Fixed!

    And I think you need to lock-up the mirror, thus the separate eyepiece VF!

    Made a circle 24mm diameter at the film plane.

  5. A long shot, but you might try Dave McRae at Vermont Camera Works. He's done Nikon lenses for a long time and has some resources. I don't know how far back that goes, but he might at least have a lead.
     
  6. Fixed focus, is it fixed aperture, too?

    Otherwise, there aren't many things to fix!
