    A very close friend of mine who has to have the best of everything bought this Nikon F6 a couple of years ago. He might have put tens rolls of film through it as far as I know. In any event he has since switched to a Nikon D3 (probably soon to be the D3x) and wants to sell this F6. I have shot a roll through it and everything works as it should. Comes with body cap, manual, battery, and I'm sure he has the original boxes. Asking price is firm at $1200usd, only paypal accepted and you pay fees and shipping.

    As you can see in the photos this camera is in like new condition. Shipping is from Calgary Canada postal code T3A 5V4 so you can determine your shipping cost.

    I bought one just to have the pinnacle in 35mm film cameras. It can't be beat, and the price is great.

    I'm am very interested in this camera.
    Once I receive it, I would have it professionally inspected.
    I would just need to know that if a significant problem was found that there would be no problem in returning it.
    Does this sound reasonable?

    Thanks,

    The camera is mint. I have run it through it's paces and all is fine. I am a long time poster here who has sold many things in the past and not one person has had a problem with the way in which I describe things. So I guess I am saying it's as-is. How do I know you won't gut it for some parts you need and send me back a broken camera. I don't know you, you have one post. If someone who has been a regular contributor to apug and I had gotten to know them over time asked me this question I might answer it differently.

    I think Eric's record speaks for him- why would someone who has been here for so long and posted so often put that all at risk for a one-time scam? If I were looking for a second F6 body (admit there's some temptation here :smile:), I would have absolutely no qualms about dealing with him. This isn't that other auction site.

    If it interests you, go for it. The price is very reasonable, the camera is fantastic- what's not to like?

    Camera goes back to the owner Wednesday noon. So if you are sitting on the fence now is the time to make a leap.

    BHPhoto has a used one ($1449 and 9+ condition) and they would give you a two week inspection period with a no questions asked return. If it were defective they usually will refund shipping also. I asked my wife if I could buy it and she gave me the "look" so I thought I would keep that thought on hold and bought a Nikkormat instead.
