Nikkor 300mm f/4

The 300mm f/4 is a lens my dad found in a box at the school he works and and gave it to me for free, after looking it up it seems to run about $400+ used. This lens has a STUPID long focal length which is not very useful for much, I like using it to shoot miniatures so they look very far away, however with a minimum focal distance of 8 feet it will be unusable for may LEGO animators, that on top of the price make it impossible for me to recommend to animators. However the optics are wonderful and photographers and videographers would love it. (fun fact this lens was used while filming Bricks In Motion: The Documentary)

 

People often ask what lenses they should use on there DLSR for LEGO stop motion, so I've made a group of photos taken with my whole lens collection at each lenses minimum focus distance. All shots taken with same settings at f/5.6
