Question about a Nikon F Photomic T
I recently acquired this camera to join my lonely FE and FM. It came with the owner's manual as well as the original warrantee cards. Having several Nikon lenses already, it was just the body.
I attached my micro NIKKOR 55mm f3.5 and noticed that though the meter tab engages the lens tang fine, it only allows me to close down to f22 where it stops, and does not allow me to use f32. I followed, or at least thought I followed, all the directions for setting up for say ISO 100 film.
Anyone have a thought on this?
Photomic FTn Not Fitting?
I recently bought a Photomic FTn on eBay for my Nikon F (Serial#6809135), which was built in 1968. When I tried to mount it, the "claws" that wrap around the Nikon nameplate did not fit (see photo). Since 1968 was the year Nikon moved from the Photomic FT to the FTn, I was wondering if there could be any compatibility problems. In other words, I should have purchased an FT instead of the FTn. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Peter
