By
Nikon's Nikkor 6mm f/2.8 fisheye lens has gone on sale with a price tag of £100,000.

Grays of Westminster, who exclusively stock equipment from the camera manufacturer, is offering the wide-angle lens as part of its limited edition range.

The Nikkor 6mm f/2.8 lens was designed in the 1970s for scientific and commercial usage. It boasts a 220 degree angle of view, making it the only piece of photography equipment capable of seeing behind itself.

The Nikkor 6mm f/2.8 lens was unveiled at the Photokina trade show in 1970, and went on sale two years later. Grays' model is one of just several hundred in existence, and is in mint condition.

Grays previously listed the £25,000 Nikon f/5.6 lens as the most expensive lens among its stock.
