I just bought a nice black Ftn with a non op meter. Looking to replace it with a sportsfinder for my old eyes.
If no lens is availible ask the seller to drop the price so you can pick one up somewhere else

Sports finder? That's a BIG finder... As I already made my payment, I will most probably ask him to make a partial refund, assuming he cannot provide me with another lens. Then I will have to hunt for another lens again... Oh man...

Different lenses use slightly different prongs.

Nikon may actually be your best source for replacements.

An update, the seller contacted me already. He had to go to an old camera store to check with another lens that couples with the Photomic FTn meter. He found a 70-200 and tested the meter, seems to be fine! However, there was no 50mm for sale, so he was planning to ship the original setup to me. In the end he offered me a partial refund so I took it. Looking into getting a lens on RFF soon so I can use the camera! I think the seller provides excellent service to his customers, actually he's not a seller, he was just selling his personal items I guess. Thanks for all the recommendations everyone.

As was suggested by someone else, look for the 50mm f/2 HC Nikkor. It's a great lens, and usually quite cheap. You don't really need anything else, except maybe the 105/2.5...
