    No F? COLLECTION INCOMPLETE
    The camera is the most incidental element of photography.

    You have to stop somewhere...

    I had one, plain prism, with an old 1.4/50, for ornamental purposes, for years. Sold it. May get a black body at some time.

    Not trying to waste anyone's time.
    Mike, no collection is ever "complete"; what you have is a nice start. You're missing the F, all the other versions of the F3, the F4, F4s, F4e...

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Nice setup.

    BTW, that's a F3HP as opposed to the plain F3 . . .

    Of course, F3HP. I might consider a black F at some point, but for me it stops with the F3. I see the F4 etc as totally different (and ugly) cameras.

    The manual focus bodies are lookers and obviously stand out today . . .

    Lovely cameras! One thing though. I'd like, as a matter of totally irrelevant principle, to pair a body with a lens made in roughly the same period as as the body in question was made. Obviously this is not always possible, but pairing
    a F3HP ('81 something?) with a Nippon Kogaku (that's an "S" lens? early seventies?) just doesn't feel right. Shouldn't that have been an F or F2???

    Think of it as a demonstration of compatibilty. "S"(sept) means seven elements and it could be 60s.

    @E.: I was to lazy to look it up. Yes, as far as I recall the letter in those days indicated the number of elements. So this is an "A" or even "Pre-A"? I think Nico van Dijk and Richard de Stoutz have some lists of serial numbers and production dates or years for bodies and lenses. Very helpful, inasfar as it helped me find out I've actually got two Ai's besides five Ai-S's, a few of which are relatively young. Some Ai-S's are still made.

    Interesting stuff!
