300.00

Here we have a truly legendary vintage camera, the Nikon F. It is in great condition and is fully functional. It comes with the waist-level viewfinder, case for the viewfinder and lens cap.

If you're looking for one of the most incredible, mechanical SLRs of all time, this is it. Nikon's first (and some say best) SLR is a camera with class, substance, and style. A beautiful machine that is built to last, and can do anything most any photographer will ever ask of it.

This particular F comes with a gorgeous Nikkor 50mm F/1.8 AI-S lens. Both the camera and lens are mechanically perfect and everything functions as it should.

The viewfinder and film compartment are clean, the shutter is perfect and all speeds are accurate. The mirror is in wonderful condition. All dials levers knobs and switches actuate as they should The film advance lever works smoothly, but springback of the lever is slightly slower than it should be.

The included Nikkor 50mm F/1.8 standard fast prime lens is renowned for its incredible sharpness when stopped down, and amazing bokeh shot wide-open. It is one of Nikon's best standard lenses, and it's a perfect lens for portraits, low-light shooting, subject isolation, product photography, landscape shots, architectural shooting, street photography, and more.

The aperture blades are oil-free and snappy, glass is perfect and free of fungus or markings, mount is in perfect condition, focusing ring turns smooth as silk, aperture ring clicks nicely into its detents.
