    Amazingly good score! I'm sure I would have bought it too.

    I should be getting a Nikon FG the beginning of next week. A very nice gentleman from Texas had bought a lot of various items, it was in it and he didn't want it. He offered it to me if I would cover the postage! Very fair deal and a great start to the new year.

    +1. Congrats, Sir: A rather nice find! And a rather good omen for the New Year.
    Some Nikons (F6, F5x2, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    Here is my Christmas presents to myself: an F2 ordered directly from Mr. Wong in the UK (just the body; I already had the prism and motor drive).

    Thanks for the +1s I too feel, that it was a good sign for the new year. I think it's going to be my main 35mm for manual shooting with the Fm2n as a backup. I managed to locate a plain prism for a fair price already so I think it'll be good to go. I'm going to work with it and see if any funky issues develop, but it's so clean I can tell it wasn't abused in its lifetime, I also peg it as being made between 1971/1972 so it's almost an Apollo

    Correct, sir. It was expensive, but cheaper than buying a body elsewhere and mailing it to him.
