Lets say that i own a holy grail, and im willing to sell, what do you guys think i will be able to make off it?
You sir are an arsehole, i couldn't find only exorbitant auction prices, nothing realistic. I really tought you guys were different from the guys on /b/ and would actually get an educated person give me a real answer, i guess not.
>If you find one today, expect to pay a minimum of $5,500 for a beater lens without its case or filters, $10,000 for one in OK shape complete with case, caps and filters, and $20,000 or more for one unused in the box complete with papers.

Look up the price on eBay, OP...
There was one of that ultra wide angle prime lens in the photo school where I used to work as assistant, not sure if it was the same as yours. It was left with no use and all spotted with fungus. There was also one 300mm 2.8. Same condition , and no one gave a fuck about it. Fuck...
>Lets say that i own a holy grail
dude it is an impressive lens but it's no 6mm 2.8
>what do you guys think i will be able to make off it?
I don't know, a shitty 90s music video?
>You understand why it's called the holy grail right?
I don't know, because it is out dated and out performed by modern glass?
the opposite of rectile disfunction
You are now aware that "highly desirable rare items" get "discussed" in /p/ at the same time as some douchebag wants to one for more than the "collectors price" they were stupid enough to buy it for in the first place, despite new glass being better in almost every way and cheaper.
Nobody in their right mind would consider the 13mm for practical use when there are so many modern alternatives that aren't as rare, valuable and cumbersome.
The 6mm fisheye is incredibly niche, but at least its optical parameters are unique.
>Nobody in their right mind
Careful now. We're talking about Nikon collectors here.
