    I have a complete F3HP system for sale, everything you need to take awesome Nikon photos!

    1: Nikon F3-HP with an MD-4 motor drive. The camera has the "Red Dot" K-type screen installed (split image with microprism ring. Red dot screens are a series of Nikon screens that are brighter than normal F3 screens). I am also including a Nikon J-type screen (microprism circle, no split image) and a Nikon AR-9 Soft Release (shown on the camera). I also have the motor drive cover from the bottom of the camera.

    The camera and motor drive work flawlessly. The camera is used, but not abused. It is not in mint condition, but it is in very nice shape without excessive wear. The only major flaw is a tiny dent in the top of the prism, shown in one of the photos. The LCD in the camera works perfect, no bleeding, and the LCD backlight works. The original eyepiece rubber is still there. The photo of the back of the camera shows a mark on the eyepiece glass; its just a fingerprint I didn't notice till after I 'd taken the photo. The glass is free of scratches and fungus. I'll clean the print off before I ship it.

    The MD-4 shows a lot more wear than the camera, its well used, but works flawlessly. It has the AA battery holder in it and the covers for the remote release and power ports on the front are still there. $200


    2: 24mm f2.8D AF-Nikkor. Great condition, no marks on glass, barrel is not excessively worn. Includes caps and original Nikon hood. $299


    3: 28mm f2.8D AF-Nikkor. Great condition, no marks on glass, barrel is not excessively worn. Includes caps and original Nikon hood. This is the much more desirable D-version of the 28/2.8 AF-Nikkor. Different optical formula than the original non-D version. $180


    4: 35mm f2.0D AF-Nikkor. Barrel in great condition, little use, no scratches on lens, but the rear element had fungus that was cleaned off, and marks from it are still visible on the glass when a strong light is shined in it. For this reason, the lens is offered at a cheap price. Includes caps and Nikon hood. $150


    5: 50mm f1.4 AF-Nikkor. Great condition, no marks on glass, barrel is not excessively worn. Includes caps and original Nikon hood. There is a large speck of dust inside that was there when I bought the lens new 18 years ago. Doesn't affect image quality. This is the Non-D version, but it is made in Japan, unlike the later Chinese version. $200


    6: 85mm f1.8 AF-Nikkor. Great condition, no marks on glass, barrel is not excessively worn. Includes caps and original Nikon hood. This is the Non-D version. It is extremely sharp. $300


    7: Tamron MC7 2x Teleconverter. Great condition, no marks on glass. Includes caps. $50

    All of the lenses have some internal dust, but no fungus, haze, or fungus damage except as noted with the 35/2.0D They've been used professionally, so the barrels have some wear, but they are not badly beaten up. I'll add photos as soon as I get some made.

    I'd like to sell the kit together, so if you want it all, the price is discounted. Individually, it adds up to $1379. If you buy it all, $1199. Free shipping in the USA.

    Dang that sucker looks ready to roll and a sight to behold with the MD on there.

    Someone will be a happy snapper when they receive this.

    Good luck with the sale Chris. Bet you'll miss her…….

    Thanks, Bruce. I haven't used it in a few years, so I'm selling to raise money for some lenses for the Mamiya 6 that I bought last weekend. It came with the 75mm lens, and I am in love with it. I want the 50mm and 150mm lenses for it, so the money from this sale will go back into film photography gear. I've had the Mamiya 6 a week and put 5 rolls of film through it already.

    And all very decently priced imo!

    I used a 85"D" version for awhile when I was running a shhh…. D2H for work and that thing was very nice.
    The 85 1.8's from either camp are considered the best value/quality deal going.

    It's hard to believe how inexpensive F3HP's are these days. Great camera.

    Why auto-focus lens on a non auto-focus camera? Makes it more expensive with no added value.

    My first Nikon was an F4, then I switched to the F3.
