guilty as charged…
the mats are really great for us these days all things considering
1/1000th and the copal square shutter is regarded (reliability& durability) among REPAIR dudes so thats good enough for muy.
FT2 and on take regular batteries but rigging a battery in an earlier model is simple and cheap.
the lens barrel aperture& shutter controls are quite ergo and a breeze to use.
nice size and weight even with longer teles
simple back door loading (dont go there )
better MLU than the original F
the film advance on mine is really silky smooth and surprised me the first time I shot with it
it's way smoother than my F2 but my F2 could use a cla for sure
great deal at todays prices even if you go full auction prices.
huww-raah for the Nikkormat!
