The famous Nikon Repair Center in Taiwan has caught the eyes of the public once again by performing an amazing restoration of a Nikkor lens.
The Nikon Repair Center in Taiwan is well-known in the world of photographers. There are people who can do great jobs, but the guys who are employed there are always taking it to the next level.
Their previous stint involved repairing a lens damaged by salt water. It looked like it would never recover, but after boiling the product and making it work again, the repairers have managed to make the whole thing look like it was new.
Nikon Repair Center restores Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens’ appearance by painting it
Anyway, the menders have decided to prove that they have amazing skills once again, so their have purchased a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, which was in pretty rough shape.
The Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is pretty expensive because it is a very capable product that can maintain its maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, so buying a new one is more costly than having it fixed.
Getting back to the impressive story of these skillful workers, they have started focusing on repairing the ugly-looking lens, so they have decided to tear it apart and to paint it piece by piece.
Now the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens looks like Canon glass
One would think that they would restore it to its original design, but this is very far from the truth, as the Nikon Repair Center has determined that the lens would look better in white. Now, the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is very similar to those gorgeous Canon L optics.
Experienced photographers will definitely be surprised to see you using a white lens with a Nikon camera, so you are definitely going to turn a few heads while shooting.
Total cost will make you say: “not too shabby!”
The cost of painting your old Nikon lens in white is merely $320, which seems like a small price to pay for fooling people that you are a Canon photographer.
Taiwan’s Nikon Repair Center claims that its workers can paint almost all lenses in white. They have also restored a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, which is now as white as Canon glasses.
