Why Repro Nikkor Lens?

Repro Nikkor lenses have been designed exclusively for life-size reproduction (1:1) in 35mm format. Close-up lenses are sometimes used for this purpose but their speeds are inadequate for this special purpose.
On the other hand, high speed lenses used in general photography with apertures of f/1.2 or f/1.4 obtain optimal effects with subjects located at infinity, but will not bear exact life-size photography.

Features of Repro-Nikkor

The Repro Nikkor lens has been designed for full-size reproduction of subjects.
Repro Nikkor's performance in this field is without equal.
The problem of correcting aberrations is far more difficult for lenses of this type than for general photograhy lenses.
Therefore, only a few manufacturers have so far produced lenses for use in superimposing equipment or in copying machines, and their aperture has usually remained around f/8.
The Repro Nikkor lens has a maximum aperture ratio of f/1 or f/1.4 (Effective aperture ratio: f/2 or f/2.8 at 1:1 reproduction) and the optical system features symmetrically arranged elements, which corrects all aberrations.
