It took Fabrizio Belardetti 5 years to collect 124 Nikon pins. Some are pretty common and some are really rare.

All of the tie clasps with the Nikkor glass are very expensive and hard to find.

Fabrizio also has a Nikon phone cards collection that is currently listed for sale on eBay:

Cheetah chase with the Nikon D810

Last week I was in Tanzania, guiding a wildlife photography workshop for phototeva.com.
