    Nikon F photographers.

    Mike Johnson posted a list of photographers who have been associated with Leica over the years. Quite a distinguished list. http://theonlinephotographer.typepad...icaphilia.html

    It'd be interesting to put together a similar list of influential Nikon users over the years. I know M. Kenna worked with Nikon F cameras early on, before moving on to Hasselblad.

    Michael Kenna (early 35mm stuff)
    Pete Turner (early stuff anyway)

    I know Peter and David Turnley both started out with an F2 Photomic that they bought and shared when they were in high school. I went to the same school 20 yrs later and had the same photography teacher! The teacher had a framed newspaper article on the classroom wall showing the Turnleys together after they became famous, in the 80s, and it shows each with an F3 equipped with an MD4 motor. Mike Johnson has mentioned several times in recent years that Peter uses Leicas now.

    Henry Grossman comes to mind. He has some great shots of the Beatles that were recently shown on 60 minutes.

    Neil Leifer, the great sports photographer, certainly used an F back in the '60s, and probably still is a Nikon guy.

    Don't forget the dude from "The Bridges of Madison County"....

    It's hard to think of top pro photographer of the late 50's, 60's and 70's, who didn't use at least one Nikon F, they were standard equipment before the first Canon F1 came out in 1971 there was no realistic S.L.R. alternative if you needed a camera that could pound in 6" nails and still have it work afterwards .
