Nikon f3, md-4, nikkor 50mm f1.8, 52mm filters, pentax 50mm, canon fd adaptors
I've decided to sell the nikon f3 I bought recently. I prefer my canon f-1 and I'm trying to have as few cameras as possible.
The F3 is in good working order (all functions are correct, light meter shutter etc.). it's serial number puts it somewhere from the early nineties. Cosmetically it's ok but it has quite a lot of marks to the base plate and also there's some scratches underneath the nikon logo from a previous owner who must have used extension tubes quite a bit. I've changed the mirror bumper but the light seals in the back are still good.
If you want to be nitpicking the winder arm is a little loose (it's not loose but it's not as tight as on a "new" camera) this is the fourth nikon f3 I've owned and they've all been similar, so I guess it's common with f3's who've seen their share of film. Of course it doesn't affect anything but it should be mentioned.
Asking 80 pounds for the camera.
Next up is nikkor 50mm f1.8. Glass on this lens is superb, and it is very sharp.
It has smooth focus and the apertureblades are clean and snappy. It has two issues. The front barrel is a little loose (a screw needs to be tightned somewhere inside the lens) and therefore it doesn't focus quite to infinity (it almost focuses to infinity, but infinity on the lens is more like 30 meters in "reality").
asking 30 pounds for it.
Next up A Nikon md-4 motordrive for the F3 in superb condition, hardly any wear on it at all. Only wear is inside the battery compartment where a little paint has chipped of.
Asking 40 pounds for this.
Buy all three together for 135 pounds.
Next up is a bunch of 52 filters (BW yellow, nikkor, green and orange and UV, a circular polarizer (not bw brand) and a hoya tungsten correction filter) There's also a genuine nikkor 85mm f1.8 lens hood.
All filters are in good condition. The UV filter is a little dirty, but should clean up nicely.
asking 25 pounds for the lot.
Next up is a pentax smc M 50mm f2 PK lens. It's in great condition. Smooth focus, good glass, no nasty stuff like fungus or oil on the aperture blades.
Comes with front and rear caps.
Asking 20 pounds (or best offer)
Last but not least I have three adaptors for canon fd. There is an m42 adaptor, a t-mount adaptor and a tamron adaptall 2 adapter.
Asking 10 pounds for the m42 adaptor and 5 pounds each for the other two.
Buy all three together for 15 pounds.
I will ship anywhere in the world. I take paypal only (please send money as a gift to avoid fees). Shipping depends on where in world you are and whether you want insured or uninsured shipping.
I will of course donate some money to apug too.
The md-4 and the filters plus lens hood have now been sold, everything else is still available.
Isn't there anybody out there interested in a nice working cheap F3???
Please stop me from having to put this on ebay.
Somebody give me an offer or they are off to ebay tonight.
