    Very well made. Somewhat heavy but extremely durable. You'll need to replace the foam seals. These came with different prism heads -- some had meters, some didn't.

    Excellent camera, however.

    I have owned and used the Nikon F, F2, F3, and F4. All are well build, reliable cameras. I still shoot with three F2s, one of which was purchased in 1971. Two of the bodies have the standard DE-1 non-metered viewfinder and the third body has the non-metered DA-1 sports finder.

    If you have need for such a camera, I would not hesitate buying it for a fair price provided it is in good condition.

    Did the current owner buy it new or used? When did he buy it? How much did he use the camera? What did he shoot with the camera? How has it been stored? Has it ever been repaired? Is it a chrome body or a black body? If it is a black body, by any chance is it a titanium black body? What is the serial number on the camera?

    I spoke to his wife and she showed me the camera. No go. Film advance and shutter are trashed.

    Thanks for all the replies, and help!

    I own a Nikon F2A chrome and a Nikon F2AS black; both are fantastic performer, build as a tank, absolutely realiable.

    By chance I came across this site a couple of days ago. If you're after repair manuals, it may be worth to have a look.

    Nikon's last "Adult" camera. I still use one, and my wife owns and uses two.

    Dug into the internet and found some repair manuals, and after 4 hours of cursing, the F2 lives again.

    Welcome back friend.
