Chotoku-san and Repro Nikkor

The owner of this lens is Mr. Chotoku Tanaka.
Mr. Chotoku Tanaka is the most famous photo artist in Japan, for the people who like the camera.
We are calling him Chotoku-san affectionately.
Chotoku-san is supporting the mind of my Web site, RED BOOK NIKKOR.
Because he has very big power and passion he help my dreaming project which does not become money.
By the cooperation to me of Chotoku-san, the younger brother Repro-Nikkor 85mm F1.0 was able to meet the older brother Repro-Nikkor 170mm F1.4 once again.
It was a good story.

Platinum Silver Repro Nikkor 170mm F1.4


The hallmark of the Repro-Nikkor is aberration-free high-speed at 1 : 1 magnification in the 35mm film format.
In this circumstance the lens is unique.
Conventional close-up lenses lack the requisite speed.
And, since high-speed lenses made for general photography are optimized for infinity focus their aberrations are maximized at 1 : 1.
Certain specialized lenses, for example, those for copiers are made only as fast as f/5.6, largely because of the formidable difficulties of correcting aberrations at higher speeds.

The special characteristics of the Repro-Nikkor make it the lens of choice for certain special categories of photography.

(1) Close-up phenomena under poor light conditions.
(2) Images or traces on cathode ray tube (CRT) screens.
(3) As a relay lens to receive virtually all the rays from a front lens system.
(4) Reproduction of original images already photographed on high resolution film with very high accuracy, full resolution, and precise focusing.
