Re: filmscanners: SS120 & Nikon 8000 ... how do they work?
I'm looking over my Nikon lens chart here, which is admittedly a bit
outdated, but other than some very wide lenses (13mm, 15mm, 18mm, 20mm
and a fast 24mm) one 200mm, one 300 mm ED and one 105mm micro, no fixed
focus Nikon lens has more than single digit number of elements.
However, almost every zoom lens has more than 10 elements, and up to 20
(a 360-1200mm ED lens)
