Nikon FM2/T 35mm Film SLR Camera with Nikon Nikkor 50mm F/1.4 Fast Prime Lens, Lens Cap and Batteries - Fully Functional
Here we have another legendary Nikon 35mm film SLR camera, the Nikon FM2/T. This is the titanium edition of Nikon's renowned FM2. It comes complete with a Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 fast prime lens and lens cap. It is fully functional, and is ready to provide another lifetime of fantastic photos.
It comes with new batteries installed.
It is in perfect mechanical condition. The film compartment, battery compartment, pressure plate, mirror, and mirror box are all clean and in excellent condition. The viewfinder is clean and clear of dust.
The body is clean, with virtually no rubs or brassing. The lens mount is pristine and exacting. The levers, dials, and knobs all actuate as they should and operate with mechanical precision. The lens mount is equally pristine. The light meter also responds correctly, and exposure times are all accurate. The auto-exposure mode works perfectly.
The lens is in fantastic condition as well. There is very light scuffing on the focussing ring, though this has no impact on readability of numbers. The aperture blades are oil free and actuate perfectly. The glass is free of fungus, markings, or defects. The filter threads are in great shape, as is the mount and aperture/focus rings.
This lens has an ultra fast aperture of 1.4, allowing amazing low-light performance, and is well suited for night time street photography when the available light is low. Also perfectly capable of standard snap shots, portrait work, sports photography, and more. This is a standard, all-purpose lens of exceptional quality.
The lens produces exceptional images due to typically excellent Nikkor construction, featuring coated elements to reduce flaring, ghosting, chromatic aberration, and other optical artifacts. The build quality is fantastic, with a perfectly weighted focus throw and an aperture ring that clicks solidly into its detents.
The Nikon FM2/T is commonly regarded as being among the very best mechanical Nikon SLRs, and many photographers consider it to be the best Nikon film camera ever made.
The list of incredible technical achievements made by this camera is long, and more than we can get into here. Suffice it to say that this camera is an unbelievably high quality mechanical creation, the likes of which are rarely seen or experienced.
Full titanium metal construction, self-lubricating bearings, a mechanical shutter capable of incredible speeds up to 1/4000th of a second (the fastest mechanical shutter ever made in a mass-production camera), electronics of unbeatable durability, and close-tolerance assembly, are just some of the incredible features of this amazing machine.
The Nikon FM2/T is an advanced, semi-professional compact, mechanical camera first produced in 1984. This extremely rugged camera became an instant hit on account of its exceptional performance, mechanical ability, compact design, and robust construction.
The FM2/T is an affordable alternative to Nikon's professional F-series cameras, though the FM2/T upholds an incredible level of quality and performance compared to its professional cousins. These cameras are well-known for being, in some ways, superior to the professional offerings.
The light meter responds correctly, and exposure times are all accurate.
Additionally of note, this camera uses Nikon's ubiquitous F mount, meaning all Nikon F mount lenses and all 3rd party F mount lenses will natively mount to this camera. Nikon's Nikkor range offers exceptional optics, meaning this is a camera that will grow with you as you add to your Nikkor collection.
This is simply a gorgeous, mechanical camera, and a real heirloom machine.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
