Travis,

What impresses me the most is that every body is fitted with a lens! Very nice.

Congrats, didn't know or maybe just not remembered you having an interest in the Nikon rangefinders. This one should fit in well with your early conversion BP Barnacks, that I have enjoyed viewing and admired.

Thank you, Mike!
Actually I've been shooting with Nikon rf's for about 20 years! I was a NHS-member too. I gave it up because I wanted a black camera, but they were far too expensive.
Now the prices are dropping I finally could get one.

Erik.

New-to-me 64 F







Does anyone know how much these are worth? EP marked, and it has the older rangefinder-style hollowed film advance. I think it's from mid 1961.

Not sure that the "exchange post" marking adds value to a chrome body F. Without holding the camera it's hard to determine the condition but it appears to be a clean example, perhaps a KEH exec & not exec+ rating because of the small ding in the prism. KEH has a chrome in exec condition for $339. Not sure that they will actually get that. Anyway gives you a ballpark value.

Thanks! I'm probably going to keep it, I have a 70s Photomic FTn that I started on but this one feels much better to me, the advance lever is much more comfortable and smooth somehow, so I'll sell the FTn. And unless there's something special about the earlier focusing screens, I'm going to replace this one with a K screen from a F3. And then adapt a Contax Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 T* for it! Hah. A bit unethical, and I like the rendering of older Nikon lenses, but I haven't been satisfied with any of the 50/1.4's and the 5.8cm has been pushed out of my budget.

Kevin,
Congrats on your new lens. not only is the ltm version a rare one, but finding one with the original box & case is almost impossible to locate. Beautiful condition too!

Sold the Nikkormat, listed the N8008s tonight, and the EM is packed and waiting to be shipped to a fellow RFF member. This is all I have left of my Nikons, and I'm keeping it. Everyone should have one of these. Wonderful lens.

Don't laugh. If any first-generation copact AF deserves to be called a classic, it is this one.

Just a hastily arranged shot from some time ago. I've added an FM, a busted FE, an EM, and a motorised F since then.
