About the Weight of the Lens
According to the Nikon Process-Nikkor brochure ( 8208-01 KJC 301-5/1 ),
the weight of the lens is described as 930 g.
However, the weight of the lens alone is 808.0 g.
Does the weight of 930 g mean the total weight of the lens, front and rear caps, and lens mount?
I got this Process Nikkor 260mm F10 lens from the U.S. in 2002. The lens had been unused for a long time in one corner of the warehouse.
