Perfect I tell you.
    Yes it is, it looks just like mine! The F with plain prism balances perfectly with the lens you have on in the photo (Nikon's best 50 IMO, I have 2), the 35/2.8, and the 28/3.5 - both of which are inexpensive and very good.

    I already had a 50 1.4 AI and 35mm 2 AI-s with my FM2n that I've got lurking about but I agree that 50mm f/2 H is a wonderful optic indeed!

    I had two 1.4 NAIs and a 1.2 NAI, I got rid of all of them when I discovered the 50/2. One just sold here for $35, an AI or AIS. Quite possibly the biggest bang for the buck in 35mm photography right now.

    After a brief look at it the most exciting thing is that it has a part used film in it so I'm looking forward to
    a : finishing the film and
    b : getting the film developed to see the last images my brother shot.
    +1,000! But sorry to hear about your brother passing away.

    Shoot more film.

    A few years ago, I needed some money and sold my RB67. I very soon regretted it and recently, I started to look for something to replace it.

    Before I had the RB67, I bought a Bronica ETRS which was the cheapest medium format SLR I could find. I often wondered if I had bought a SQ, instead, would I have bought the RB as I like the square format and waist level finders.

    I started to look at SQs for sale... until the older S2 cameras caught my eye. After a while I found this one for sale for a good price and separately, the Nikkor 200mm lens in a camera dealer's sale (I also have the standard Nikkor 75mm which the camera came with).

    Anyway, it turned up yesterday and here it is on my father's old Linhof tripod which is of similar vintage (1960s).

    Very nice, including the Linhof head! I did did the opposite of you a couple of years ago. I had a square-format Bronica (EC-TL) and traded for a Mamiya RB system. I'm very glad to have the RB but I miss the Bronica and Nikkor lenses. I hope you enjoy the S2, Steve!

    Abram,

    Nice looking F. Got basically the same kit sitting on my bookshelf waiting until the weather clears (and I get over this flu bug).

    Thanks! The FG-20 turned out to have a rough winding. just a bit noisy on the gears, so it will need a service.
    And today I couldn't resist to another Nikon EM and its Series E 50mm F1.8. Both 1st version, all black! Ufff, I like EMs!
