    I try to tell myself that about my black nickel Leica II.

    Change to titanium soon after commercial production began? My F has a cloth shutter and my father bought it new in 1974...

    I too thought that was rubberized cloth in my F3, until now.

    If it is like mine (1964) I suspect the creases in the thin titanium make you think it is cloth.

    Funny, today I looked at a black Nikon F, serial number 640050, and the price was 245k less. I suppose I'll have to go back and buy it before someone else does.

    I like the way they stuck this sentence in the article, just to discourage burglars . . .

    "For security reasons, the camera is being held in a safe at a bank, and not at Grays of Westminster in Pimlico."

    It's essentially a prototype. Think of a pre-production Lamborghini Miura. Well, maybe not; the F was more like a Mustang. Actually, that doesn't quite work either. Never mind.

    I would have to say, if I were gifted this camera, I'd be sorely tempted to run a roll of film through.

    If that's true, I certainly would!

    Well, there is a "blue book" and I have looked at some prices. This is outrageous.
