    I'm looking to sell my entire Nikon kit (ideally as a bundle if possible) to a new owner. Everything works wonderfully.
    Here's everything I have:

    FM2n body - great cosmetics and minor brassing on edges, works beautifully and the meter is spot on. - $250
    F3 Body + MD-4 - great cosmetics (like the FM2n), everything works except the mechanical shutter release and the LCD illumination. - $150
    Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 AI - with caps and lens hood, slight dent in filter ring and lens hood, but functionally perfect with beautiful glass - $180
    Nikkor 50mm f/2 AI - Excellent condition, with caps and lens hood, very sharp lens, quite enjoyable to shoot with. - $60
    Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 Micro AI-S - with caps, extremely sharp lens - $180
    Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 AI-S with caps, and an extra hood (has built in slide out hood) - $200

    Everything is in excellent working order, and I honestly have loved this kit, but as I mentioned I simply have too much gear right now and I'm looking to scale back. I would ideally prefer to sell as a kit, but if not I'll entertain offers. My package asking price is based on finished eBay auctions and webstores like B&H / KEH / Adorama.

    If possible, I would like to net around $1k for everything (or as close to that as possible). I have to fund a different gear purchase for a trip coming up very soon this summer (mid-June) so the sooner I can sell, the better.

    Please PM me if you have any questions!

    Just FYI, when trying to view the photos Flickr says they are private.

    Correction, sort of: viewing on my desktop thru the web page they work fine. Using Tapatalk forum reader with iphone or iPad I see thumbnails in the thread but when clicking the images get that private message. So it seems a Tapatalk access issue but I view other threads with Flickr images using Tapatalk with no problem. Strange. Sorry for the semi-false alarm.

    55mm is sold pending payment.

    If you are interested in both the 24 and 105 I will sell them together for $300. If you are also interested in the F3 I will sell them all together for $400.

    Not to interrupt but if you subtract the MD-4 and 105 AIS, this is exactly my Nikon "kit". I love it. :smile:

    Would you like a backup? Hehe.
    It does work wonderfully. I preferred the F3's handling and viewfinder over the FM2n (though that worked well in the short time I had it).
    The 24 has been such a great lens, I usually had that on one body and the 50mm f/2 on the other.

    ( FM2n is the backup, at least in a way: I keep it loaded with 400 for a "grab and go" camera for when it's too late for 100 handheld in with my F3 )

    I like the F3's viewfinder better too. I've only had my FM2n for a short while, but it feels wonderful and natural in my hands, so I definitely love them both. I too love my 24mm AIS, it's my favorite lens. I hope whoever buys your remaining cameras has as much fun with them as I am.:smile:

    I agree, the FM2n was a great second camera to my F3.
    I don't know if I mentioned this in the ad (don't think so) but I chose to liquidate my SLR equipment because the reality was that for 35mm film my needs are met by my Hexar AF and Yashica Electro. Simple cameras, but for how I shoot 35mm they are perfect. I am not a collector, and when I find myself with an abundance of "surplus" camera equipment I go through purging phases to remind myself that I am indeed NOT a collector.

    I started with the F3 and a 50mm and it just spiraled out of control so quickly because I wanted all these extra bits and pieces.

    Anyways, you all know how great these cameras are, same with the lenses, and I do hope that this all finds a good home and quickly too. I am definitely open to offers because in order to proceed with the piece of equipment I actually DO need for my trip this June I have to sell the rest of this gear first.

    Thanks everyone!

    If you purchase the remaining bundle I will throw in a like new Think Tank Sub Urban Disguise 10 shoulder bag with the gear.

    It's been asked by a couple folks and I just wanted to clarify the condition of the 24mm. The dent in the filter thread is extremely minor. So minor that it wasn't disclosed to me when I originally bought the lens. You can still mount filters and the HN-1 hood without any trouble at all. The lens functions perfectly in all ways.
