The lens is perfect. Filter threads are pristine, glass is free of fungus, optical coating is in perfect shape, aperture blades are snappy and oil free, mount is unmarred, everything is excellent!

This standard lens is fantastic for street photography, snap shots, portraits, and everything in between. It has a very fast aperture for low-light shooting, and will produce wonderful bokeh shot wide open. Shooting this lens stopped down will create incredibly sharp images. Additionally, this camera uses Nikon's ubiquitous F mount, for which there are an astounding number of available lenses. 

The Nikon FG20 is an interchangeable lens, 35 mm film, single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. It was first manufactured by Nikon in Japan in 1984.

The FG20 was the successor to the Nikon EM and FG cameras of 1979 and 1982. These cameras comprised Nikon's first family of ultra compact 35mm SLR camera bodies. The FG20 had a very sophisticated electronic design compared to earlier electromechanical Nikons.

A very capable camera, it offers a number of shooting modes including full Manual, mechanical speed, and Aperture Priority semi-automatic. This makes it a perfect camera for both advanced users and shooters who are completely new to photography or film cameras.

It uses Nikon's ubiquitous F-mount, which means that any of Nikon's amazing Nikkor lenses will mount to this camera natively. This allows fitment of incredible world-class optics that will enable the shooter to create fantastic photographs. Any 3rd party F-mount lens will also fit, enabling shooters on a budget to make amazing images as well.
