    FS Nikon Nikomat FT Camera w/ 50mm HC f2 Lens & 2x Tele-converter - $75

    Here's a nice little Nikon Nikomat 35mm SLR with a 50mm HC f2 prime lens and a Coligon 2x teleconverter. (Also comes with a UV filter for the lens.)

    In really good condition; shutter works fine, and the speeds sound accurate to my ear. Advance is smooth; the self-timer and the mirror lock up work fine. I haven't run film through this one, so I don't know the condition of the light seals, but they don't look bad for their age.

    The lens is a beauty. No scratches, marks, dust -- glass is close to perfect (it has always had a UV filter attached).

    Also comes with a 2x teleconverter.

    Asking $75 plus shipping, payable via PayPal.

    Forgot to mention -- the light meter works and there is a working battery in the body, but I have no idea whether the meter is accurate.

    For those who are interested, this lens can also be easily adapted to work on modern DSLR bodies like a Canon EOS camera.

    Somebody buy this camera and use it!
    It's a beautiful model and nice to work with. Also a beautiful lens.
    You'll have a lot of fun with it (wouldn't use the teleconverter, though).
    I have one myself.

    I'm just including the teleconverter because otherwise I would be tossing it in the trash -- and I hate to throw things away.

    It is a loverly little gem of a camera though.

    How about $70? Seems like a steal to me.

    A backup can come in handy, no?

    If I was a little more certain on the meter I might grab this for my son. Can you check it against other cameras or meters you have? Is it consistent or even close? Or is it pretty much jittery and inconsistent?

    I just tried to test the meter outside, and the battery isn't working (I didn't have a cap on the lens). For those of you who have asked me to test the accuracy of the meter, take my advice: never trust the accuracy of a 50 year old light meter! Use a modern, handheld digital meter -- you will save money in the long run, trust me.
