Darn you! I love my F2. Now I want to try a Canon F1!!
I'm sorry for giving you G.A.S., I used to sell all these cameras Richard when they were current when I worked at a professional dealers I bought all my 3 F1N's second hand more than 25 years ago, and the only thing I've had to have done to them is recently when the oldest one developed a slow mirror fault because of dried out lubricant in the mirror mechanism that was easily remedied by a C.L.A by a camera technician that I got back last week. One of the things that surprises about these 3 bodys that were made several years apart is than when I tested their light meters against each other recently with a Kodak Grey Card and light meter of known accuracy they agreed with each other exactly which I'm very impressed with because they have never been adjusted since I've owned them.
Ben. You are not helping! Since you caused this problem only you can now solve it: sell me one of those three bodies with a nice 50mm on it at a good price. It's only fair. ;-)
Sorry they aren't for sale, but there's a nice one on E bay in Japan at the moment http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Canon-F1-F...-/251441655488
I know they aren't cheap but the Canon list price in the U.S.A. in 1986 was $1,057 with the AE finder and f1.4 lens which was a lot of bread at a time when the average house in the U.S. cost $44,000.
