One of the highest quality enthusiast-level cameras of its day, the Nikkormat EL is an all-metal electromechanical controlled SLR capable of both full manual shooting and aperture-priority automatic exposure. It's a camera that will do everything the average enthusiast photographer could ask of it, and allow room to grow through its many professional-level features.
The included Nikkor 50mm F/1.8 standard prime lens is renowned for its incredible sharpness when stopped down, and shallow depth of field shot wide open. It is among Nikon's range of best all-purpose lenses, making it a perfect lens for snapshots, low-light shooting, landscape shots, architectural shooting, street photography, and more.
The aperture blades are oil-free and snappy, the glass is perfect and free of fungus and markings, the mount is in perfect condition, and the aperture ring clicks nicely into its detents. The focus ring spins nicely, and the filter threads and mount are unmarred.
This lens can also be used on modern Nikon DSLRs, as well as mirror-less and micro 4/3rds cameras when paired with the appropriate inexpensive adapters.
The Nikkormat EL uses Nikon's ubiquitous F-mount, meaning that any of Nikon's incredible lenses can be used with this camera. Additionally there exists a myriad of third-party lenses by a number of respectable manufacturers. This is a great body to begin a versatile 35mm camera collection.
This is a perfect camera for any shooter, whether just starting out or an advanced hand. You won't be disappointed.
The camera will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
