    Just F

    To me there is only one Nikon F, the original with no numbers after it. I dropped mine and need to have it repaired. That was in 1974. I regularly use Nikkormats and recently obtained great vintage lenses by Nikkor -- 50mm f1.4, 20mm f 2.8 and 80-200 f2.8. I keep a film camera in my car trunk at all times and its an N2000. The batteries last for years. I need to find somebody to fix a really old F with the heavy motor drive. But first I have to check out my "brand new" Rolleiflex, circa 1956. It is in beautiful shape.

    Sover Wong works on F bodies as well. A lot of things on the F did not change when Nikon went to the improved F2... (I love my F, but, the F2AS is quite a bit nicer, I'm afraid).

    http://soverf2repair.webs.com - send him an email and get the camera ready to go to him. Expect to have an F that works better than it did when you bought it, if you bought it new.

    Ah, who could own an F2 and not use it?

    Mine arrived a couple of weeks ago (with the 105mm f/2.5). Now the sun's coming out at last, and I plan to run a test roll through it. Whee! My main cameras are Olympus OM-1n x 2, but it's sheer delight to be able to own and use such a magnificent classic as the F2. Mine will certainly get "regular occasional" outings.

    Jump! You won't regret it. The F2 is arguably one of/if not Nikon's best. Solid, dependable, adaptable and durable: pick one up, have it "Soverized," and you will have a camera that will last you a lifetime (I love them so much that I have 12...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.

    Heck, I was thinking my two were too much! Then again can't seem to get myself to sell one because I cannot decide on which one!
