Press Release: Nikon at Grays of Westminster

Co-founder Gray Levett said, “The refurbishment to Grays of Westminster which began in 2006 is now finished, and has brought an invigorating sense of space and light to the whole premises, echoing the spirit of enlightenment which prevailed at our foundation."

The timeless delight of walking into the ground floor is as impressive as ever, but now that the final touches to the restoration of our new lower-ground floor second-hand department are complete, a visitor can wander from floor to floor, contemplating the diversity and profusion of Nikon kit in every glass cabinet, weighing down every shelf. The vast amount (half a ton in the past week alone) of second-hand Nikon we keep in stock is enough to distract even the most careworn of Nikon users.

The cabinets on the lower-ground floor are full to the brim with a breathtaking range of secondhand Nikon equipment from the legendary 6mm f/2.8 Fisheye-Nikkor, which offers an angle of view of 220 degrees, to the mighty line-up of 200mm f/2, 300mm f/2.8, 400mm f/2.8 and 600mm f/2.8 super telephoto AF-S Nikkor lenses.

To add yet more riches to this treasure trove of second-hand Nikon are 14 of the superb 70-200m f/2.8G AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor lenses lined-up on the shelf of one cabinet, whereas another cabinet contains 8 of the 17-35mm f/2.8D VR AF-S Nikkor lenses. On a different shelf, 105mm and 135mm f/2D AF DC Nikkor lenses can be found in multiples, complemented by an equal number of AF-S Nikkor lenses of numerous focal lengths. Furthermore, a huge selection of the mint and near-mint condition manual focus Nikkor lenses is also available to purchase.

Multiples of Nikon D200, D2X, D2H, D80, D70 and D70s as well as the F6, F5, F4, F100, F3 cameras and other models complement the vast array of lenses. Accessories that include an unequalled range of mint condition finders for the F6, F5 as well as accessories for the F4, F3 and F2 share space with the widest armoury of lens hoods available in any camera shop in the world.

The term Aladdin's Cave is often mentioned when describing Grays of Westminster but this is an Aladdin’s Cave open to everyone with or without their Turkish slippers.

I made a visit recently. It was my first stop on a recent trip to London. I had a look through the 6mm fisheye (amazing field of view) and tried a couple of lenses on my D200. If you are looking for anything Nikon this is the place to go. Great service from knowledgeable & friendly staff.
Their seminars are very dear, their equipment has high margins and the staff that I interacted with, came across as unctuous.

They have a book on Amazon UK called 'Grays of Westminster Exclusively... Nikon: In the Company of Legends', written by Gillian Greenwood, of the in-store staff members. Make no mistake, this is neither a Company of legends, nor will you be in the company of legends, even if their Amazon book (which is an ostensibly) an advert, makes such assertion.

If you can get past all that, the store is clean and owner has some interesting anecdotes about Stanley Kubrick, the man behind Clockwork Orange.
After dealing with Grays for over 25 years, I finally made the pilgrimage to the store on Tuesday, what a store, I was met by Xam, who I talked over the phone and chatted to through Instagram.

I'd gone to pick up a couple of there new Beenie hats,but ended up buying a 18-140 Z lens for my Z50, I'm off to Croatia soon, and didn't think the 16-50 would be long enough, so now I'm pretty sure I've got the travelling camera and lenses that will suit my needs.

I was shown around the second hand section, I did get tempted by quite a few very nice items, I'm lucky I left my gold card at home,otherwise I'd have come home with more than I did.

I'm planning another trip to London very soon, hopefully next time I visit, Gray will be in the store.
