    Hi y'all,

    I have a nice black FTN with the above mentioned lens. Shutter speeds sound good, even 1 second. There is a slight shutter lag after you press it, but otherwise seems to be solid. Lens is clean and comes with Nikon front cap. Meter responds with a 625 (IIRC) battery, though as it requires a mercury battery I can't vouch for its accuracy.

    I want a chrome mount FD 35mm f/2 ideally, but would be interested in the f/2.8 as well. Chrome because I use 55mm filters. We can figure out exactly what the terms of the trade are if someone out there is interested. Pictures availalbe too, just don't have them convenient at the moment.

    Thanks!

    Ok, update. I was mistaken, it is actually a Nikkor-S 35mm, f/2.8, which is better! These routinely sell between $50 & $80 on eBay (sometimes less). Mine has a front cap but no rear cap.

    Black Nikkormat FTN's sell from $25 to $60, body only. Mine has some dings, but is in good shape.

    So, I'm holding from $75 to $140 in value.

    FD 35mm f/2 sell from $80 to $150+. I'm hoping for the older FD style with chrome bayonet, and would also love a chrome nose. New FD's usually fetch the higher price as far as I can tell. Thorium and concave element preferred; yellowing is fine by me!

    Alternatively, if someone just wants to buy my Nikkormat setup, that would be fine as well.

    Thanks, pictures to follow....
