Strength:

Optical performance. Small size.

Weakness:

slow (f9). Needs a lot of bellows extension (18" +)

Great lens. Sharp. Great color and contrast. Huge image circle. Loses no sharpness when tilted, as opposed to the Fujis which fall apart when tilted. (I'm uncertian on price and dealer, as I bought it about 22 years ago.)

Customer Service

Strength:

Excellent sharpness and contrast, huge image circle. 67 mm filters. Very compact, packs away easily. Works beautifully on my Ebony SV45Ti.

Weakness:

None

A remarkably compact long lens. If your camera has the required bellows draw ( about 500 mm) then this is much smaller, sharper and less expensive than a telephoto type lens.

Customer Service

Not required

Strength:

Very sharp, I have only used it for large-format (20" roll film) graphic arts negatives (halftones).

Weakness:

none

I do not doubt that this lens would do well in regular applications, as well as high magnification copy work.

Customer Service

never had to use it

Walter Glover   Professional [Mar 31, 2001]
Strength:

Image Circle and outstanding performance in a tiny package that uses moderate sized filters

Weakness:

None

I use this lens on a Linhof Master Technika 2000 by mounting it on a Wista Extension Tube. The tube does vignette with extreme movements but I can live with that for the sake of rigidity and portablity and stunning image quality achievable. The Nikkor-M 450 has so impressed me that I am about to purchase the Nikkor-M 300mm.

Customer Service

No back-up service has been required
