    last time I used my two F2s was Sunday fortnight ago.

    a DP-1 and DE-1

    I needed to refoam one first

    The DE-1 prism has a chipped apex and one of the shutters has fabric paint blocking pin holes.

    the DP-1's needle sticks

    Both have damaged top plates.

    they have not been babied

    I had a F for a while but mirror vibration was a problem cause I don't hold cameras tight.

    If one has a Nikon F2 and it works and one is shooting film then I really see no reason not to use the F2. About the only problem with the F2 is that you have to put film in it which can be a problem depending on where you are.

    Had my recently Soverized 1979 F2AS out for a spin this afternoon. A measure of my confidence in both the esteemed Mr Wong and the camera: I ran a roll of E100VS though the body to break in my "new" F2. lol
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Yep, I still use it. Almost always with Ilford HP5+. Sent it off to Sover 8 years ago - still ticking along.

    Occasionally I take it out as a second body to My F3 or F4, but for the most part it sits on a shelf.

    It's not that I use a lot of 35mm these days preferring my medium format cameras and their great negatives, but I wonder if
    perhaps I should use the F2 a bit more.

    Does anyone use their F2 on exclusively or on a regular basis?

    as soon as Nikon comes out with their digital film back, we'll all use our 35mm film cameras again;can't wait;just hope the rumors are trueand it has half way decentspecs.

    Got my backup F2AS loaded up in a box, along with an F2AS owned by Ralph Javins, and a body that Sover Wong himself bought, then had sent to my place, waiting to be shipped to him. My main body was serviced by him earlier this year. Better than new, as per usual.
