    FS - Nikon F4s, 50mm 1.4, focussing screen

    I hate to sell one of the best 35mm cameras ever (including one of the finest metering systems) but I'm moving more and more to medium format.

    Camera body, lens and an extra focussing screen (F) are all in fine shape. No dings, mechanical problems, etc.
    The meter is bang on, as I used this camera to shoot most of my Kodachrome stash last summer...the few subsequent B&W rolls I shot since are also spot on.

    The nice thing about the F4 is you can get matrix metering with non-AF lenses.

    The lens is the AF 50mm 1.4 -- clean and works well with the F4's AF (or use the camera's rangefinder to confirm your manual focus.)

    Asking $300 for all of it. Paypal is fine if you add the fee, money orders nicer. 3% to APUG of course.

    Why are you doing this to me????? I was on a market for an F5 or a clean F4 but I couldn't find anything and I ordered and F5 2 days ago. Nice looking camera but never used one. Does the F4 have Aperture/Shutter Priority?

    It does, yes. And in a 'classic' format too ie. dials, not LED interface.

    I used the camera (not this one, but another) during my newspaper film days...it was a beauty. I'm basically selling to either get more into MF or else get one lighter 35mm body (as opposed to 2 or 3 heavier ones).

    Hey Denis
    Thanks but I have a different camera in mind for my simplification...think rangefinder.

    Sale pending...

    FWIW, it seems this camera is actually the F4e, because it has the larger MB-23 battery pack, which accepts either AA's or a special Nikon NiCd battery that's still available new.

    STILL AVAILABLE

    Haven't heard word, nor payment, from potential buyer so this one is still open, folks.

    That's US$300 plus shipping, for clarification's sake.

    Put me in line for this combo if sale does not go through. I am looking to replace an ailing F4....soon!

    FOLKS -

    You may call me a chiseller for this, but it's pretty clear I'm underselling this camera. I'd like to change the price to US$400 plus shipping for the same combo.

    I think it's still fair. Feel free to disagree but keep in mind I'm nice to small animals, donate regularly to charity and recycle paper and plastic.
