Agree - after seeing and handling the 6 mm f/2.8 Fisheye, the 8 mm f/2.8 suddenly appears "tiny". Very tiny.

Still a pity Erik had to let that one go.

Could have bought myself a share, you know. However, surely not a low-priced product :(

The price appears to have soared from the first time I heard about that particular specimen?

Bjørn that was also the price the 6mm Ai f/2.8 was listed at on EBay - I still have the price tag that was on the lens cap; 375.000,- DK
Story was it was 'sold' before I could bring it to Scotland, however the shop honoured that they had promised to rent it to me, so the sale could not be fulfilled and then the buyer retracted.
Then they raised the price even more in their own store to 'avoid' selling it while I was using it, they couldn't raise the EBay price for some reason,,,
I needed the 'low' 50,000 € price value for my insurance for it to be full coverage, 10% of the insurance maximum of 4.000.000,- DK Kroner
The lens was sold to another gentleman while I was traveling with it anyway. so I had to bring it back,,, He also bourght the 'Low ground tripod' and custom flight case

Yes -Sold the 8mm years ago,,,

My collection of MF 105/2.5's
From left to right:
10.5 Nippon Kogaku Nikkor-P (Sonar)
105 Nippon Kogaku Nikkor-P (Gauss)
105 Nikkor-PC AI-d and chipped
Should be:
10.5 Nippon Kogaku Nikkor-P (Sonnar)
105 Nippon Kogaku Nikkor-P (Sonnar)
105 Nikkor-PC AI-d and chipped (Gauss or more accurately Xenotar)
All the chrome barrel 105s are the older Sonnar design. The Xenotar lenses have a slightly longer barrel are found in the black barrel Nikkor-P, P.C, K, AI and AIS versions.
