How to Smash $5,000 in Nikon Lenses


Here’s an 8-second video showing $5,000 in Nikon lenses getting smashed with a mallet. If you cringe at the thought of harm coming to any photographic equipment, here’s the good news: the video isn’t what you think. It’s a creative video by stop-motion extraordinaire PES.

“Nikon sent me some lenses to test out…is this what they had in mind?” PES writes. “Not sponsored by Nikon (but shot on the D810).”

The shot clip shows him smashing a $2,100 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II, $900 105mm f/2.8G, $1,600 85mm f/1.4G, $450 50mm f/1.4G, and rear lens cap.
