    I don't need three N90s bodies, so two need to go along with some of the stuff that came with them I don't use:

    1. Nikon N90s body with MB-10 grip and MF-26 back. $30 Film tested, clean with minor rub marks and the usual sticky back. No LCD bleed. Note does not include the non-grip battery holder.

    2. Nikon N90s body. $20 Film tested, clean with minor rub marks and a clean(!) back. No LCD bleed.

    3. AF Zoom Nikkor 28-85mm 1:3.5-4.5 macro w/HB-1 hood. $60 Clean glass, smooth focus/zoom, & snappy aperture. Very minor rub marks on barrel. This is the late version (Mk II) with the wider focus ring.

    4. Nikon SB-26 flash. $30 Tested working, no battery compartment corrosion. Good condition, minor wear marks, battery compartment door is notched & velcroed for Quantum cable.

    5. Quantum KZ-2 cable: fits the SB-26 (and SB24-28 as well.) very good condition, $6

    6. Nikon SC-17 Remote Flash Cord: Good condition, $6

    7. Nikon SD-7 external battery pack with SC-16 cord. Uses 6 C batteries for the SB-25, SB-24, SB-22, SB-20, SB-11, SB-14 flashes. Case is in poor condition, plastic battery hold looks pristine. Just pay shipping.

    Shipping will be via priority mail, most likely a medium flat rate box for $12 the larger items. The cords will fit in a small box or even padded envelope, so $5. Obviously, I'll combine shipping and if you want another shipping method let me know. Paypal or USPS Money order accepted. 14-day return policy.

    Nice set and moderate prices for the N90s. I bought such a camera about 2 months ago (called F90x in Europe) and it's a wonderful camera.
    The rubber on the back door tends to get sticky on all N90 cameras in the end, but you can get a new original back door from Nikon and replace it.
    If you were in Europe I would take one and give it to my daughter. She wants to learn analogue photography this summer :w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t:

    (Shipping costs cross Atlantic is a killer ....)

    ToadMen, do you know if the new backs have a better rubber or would they become sticky also? For how much is Nikon selling them?

    This camera has been out of production a long time. You can occasionally find a back on eBay or here. But for $50 here you can have a clean back and two bodies so I don't see why you would bother hunting for another back.

    The sticky stuff can also be cleaned off with some work and houshold chems.

    Beyond that one issue this camera model is great, I still own one.

    I paid EURO 25 + shipping for the back door (without preasure plate), so yes: buy both these cameras from the OP and have all the spare parts you'll need :wink:

    I'm guessing the new back is made of the same material, but I don't know for sure.

    I corrected my post, thanks.

    BTW: Mark Barendt sounds like a real Dutch name ...

    Both my N90s bodies have a "non-sticky" back and has remained that way for many years. I'm not the original owner, so it may have been replaced at one point. But I would not assume that all N90s backs will become sticky over time.

    An incredible level of functionality for the $20 and $30 the OP is asking.

    The SB-26 flash is sold pending payment.

    There was a question on the model numbers of the cables, so I've attached photos of those parts for clarity.
