Nikon body with finder

Hardly any Nikon F bodies around without finder. Film? Digital?
Could you be more specific?

I just picked up a Nikon F Photomic with FTN prism/meter but I have yet to test the meter. Circa 1970 I have a spare meter as well (bad prism), but functionality of both meters is yet to be tested. Will try and work on it this afternoon and see how they work.

I'd be looking for around $200 for everything shipped in CONUS.

If interested, I can send you some pics.

Yes. I am looking for a plain F with finder, lens would be okay. I had one years ago and lended it to relative, now lost. (That is earliest Nikon 35 SLR, no meter, just body and finder. You had to know f/stop to aperture to shoot well.)

My friend here in Germany has two silver Fs with FTns and lenses from 24 - 1?? and a zoom plus Novoflex fastshooter-system. No prof. use, just slides and a bit b/w work. He wants to sell, but I want to buy a black one.....:rolleyes:
When there is interest I can exchange datas and email adresses.

I am "reducing" my collection and have a spare Nikon F eye-level prism that can be paired to a body. PM with an offer for Nikon F with plain prism, lens, and case sent.



Nikon F with Plain Prism go for a wide-range of prices, depending on condition. "BGN" grade at KEH are not too much, around $150 for a chrome body with plain prism to $300 for one in "EX" condition.

Hi Brian,

the look of the F with the tiny 'pyramide' is really sexy....
Is your finder in black paint? If so. pls. give me your price.

My Nikon F prisms are chrome. One on a 6420xxx body, with the old NKT on the inside. The Spare is a later "rectangular eyepiece" marked Nikon on the inside.

My Nikon DE-1 finder for the Nikon F2 is black, but is a keeper. I'm amazed at how high these have gone.

But I have Nine Nikon F's alone. F eyelevel, Photomic Bullseye, Photon T Black, Photomic Tn Black, Two Photomic FTn's in Black and three in chrome. My "User" is an early Photomic Ftn Apollo with the Motor plate. SN on that Apollo must have been a special order, well before the regular production run- but later than that featured in the owner's manual. The "newest" is a 7444xxx, very late Apollo, close to the end of production. I have even more F2's. But only five F3's...
