Even you may have Nikkor 1200mm F11 super telephoto lens.
However, you may not have this lens.
This is Nikkor ED 1200mm F11 super telephoto lens which used the "ED glass" lens.
Nikkor ED 1200mm F11 super telephoto lens was the longest focal length non-reflex lens from Nippon Kogaku.
This lens was manufactured only a little. So, we are very hard to find this lens in the used camera market.
