How much was the lens new in 1970?

I don't know. But Nikon was still building them to order about 20 years ago. I ordered one, and I believe it was $26,000. In advance, with a 9 month lead time.

Did you order it for yourself? I assume for a company you were working for, with that kind of budget.

Very much like having a child.

A little less messy, perhaps.
