    Three Nikon bodies, and a Tokina zoom... $varies...

    1) Nikon F4e. Hate to sell this, but may have to due to the eBait binge that I went on and my desire to own a Hassy 500ELX that's in pretty darn nice condition. Camera is a solid KEH EX, possibly EX+ grade body. Still has a satin finish to most everything, only tiny scratches on the corners of the finder, and near the strap lugs. Back and MB-23 battery pack, however, are BGN grade, which brings the camera to the middle of the EX grade overall. Late serial body (25861xx) that is newer than some F5's. Meter's dead nuts accurate, all displays work without LCD bleed, shutter works properly, etc. Comes with the K screen (horiz. split-image with microprism ring), DK-2 eyecup, -3 diopter (internal adjustment works fine, but my eyesight is -5, so I needed the extra correction to get to where I needed to be), and instruction book. All ports are covered with their respective caps, including the almost-never covered cable release socket. Hot shoe is the later style and has a BS-1 cover installed. $325, obo.

    2) Nikon F chrome. Solid KEH BGN condition, cosmetically. Has an impression between the shutter release and the wind lever that does not affect functionality of the camera. Only mechanical issue is that it seems the self-timer firing button mechanism is stuck in the fired position. As soon as you release the self-timer lever, it begins counting down without pressing the button. Camera is perfectly useable otherwise. Comes with K screen and late 4-side waistlevel finder installed. Except for those two things, the camera is period correct for late 1968 (serial 69159xx). Case for the waistlevel is also included. Was thinking about updating it a bit, but my eBait binge scored me a black F FTn "Apollo" body. So, I'm offering it up for sale. Price is $100, which is what I paid for it, the screen, and the finder recently.

    3) Nikomat FTn chrome. Serial 42483xx. Cosmetically KEH BGN/EX grade. Rewind crank is stamped with the <E-P> Export Permitted stamp. Just overhauled to the tune of $138+tax, including conversion to 1.5 volts. Everything works perfectly on the camera. Comes with 1.55 volt S625PX battery and Nikkormat accessory shoe. Asking $80 for it.

    4) Tokina zoom lens. 80-200mm f/3.5-4.5 in Nikon AI mount - however, it does have the AIS mount features on it, so it would do program mode on all manual focus Nikons that have P or S mode (FG, FA, and N2000). Lens is a solid BGN grade. Clean glass, good focusing and aperture function, but cosmetic wear on the barrel and focus/zoom ring grip. $50 alone, $25 with whatever body you want.

    Take all three bodies and the lens for $475.

    All prices are plus shipping via USPS Priority Mail. CONUS buyers only, please.

    Pics of the F are on my flickr photostream currently. The screen shown in the top view is a P screen, which is being kept for the F FTn "Apollo" body. Also, the 28-70mm zoom is being kept for the gear that's left over. I will be uploading pics of the F4e with the Tokina zoom later tonight. Will try to get some pics of the Nikomat this week when I visit the repair shop to make another payment on the overhaul job.

    Returned the F4e and the Tokina zoom to Kenmore Camera. The F is going to be headed back to Camera Clinic, since I don't need it now that I have the black F FTn on its way. That leaves the Nikomat FTn as the only thing for sale. Surely someone's gotta be interested in an FTn that comes with a transferrable 6 month warranty...
