    I now that there is no excuse on this, but I have lost battery cap of my Nikon F2. Which is the one to replace it with? I have seen tall ones and short ones, yet I don't remember which one is of the proper size.

    Not sure I know what you mean by "tall" and "short" -- there is only one size battery cap. I don't know the size offhand, but it might be interchangeable with the battery cap from the Nikkormats, since those are also bayonet style (1/4 turn opens it).

    if you mean the black plastic winglets that hold the battery/batteries in place, all my F2 bodies have the short cap, i.e. just the bayonet lid, no winglets. i see the tall screw-in ones in my FM2s

    Thank you! I have found many with those "winglets". Since the short bayonet ones do, I will get one of these.

    Just contact Sover Wong. He'll sell you the correct cap without having to go through eBay and having to wait for something to arrive from the states.
