    Searching Nikon F on ebay

    How do you search for a Nikon F on ebay, I'd like to know. It returns 40 million listings for anything Nikon that has an F in it.

    "Nikon F" in quotes will help a bit. it still doesn't seem to have the concept of "whole words only," so it will find a Nikon F2 as well (not necessarily a bad thing ) but it's better than nothing i guess...

    I did a search on "Nikon F body" and selected the film camera category and got 625 matches, including all F-series cameras. Not very hard to scroll through.

    I've tried all that. And yes it's a PITA to scroll through.

    Try adding "body" or "camera" or "MF" or "manual focus"

    You must not have the eBay app on your iPad.

    Thanks everyone, but I'm afraid nothing will work to weed out anything not 1959-1971 Nikon F only. Any other keywords would also go to filter out a portion the F's themselves. Especially words like "manual focus" or "body" and the like. Remember, people who know nothing of cameras and simply put up thrift-shop items, don't use these words.Come to think of it, without a finder, the Nikon F has no model stamped on it at all.

    You could also qualify it by the finder you want

    That's not always bad, poorly listed items get fewer real buyers; yes they are tougher to find but can be better deals. I've done that several times.

    Also I always look for bodies with lenses; many times the lens can be sold to cover a good share of the total cost.

    I just did a search for, nikon "F", camera body and when it gave me the results I simply went to the categories on the left and selected vintage which produced a result of 120 items. If 120 is too many to look thru, you may not be serious about buying. You might also post a WTB message in this forum. Bill Barber
