Lovely set! I don't remember ever seeing a hood with the E.P. marking before. Its the standard Nikon hood shape though, rather than vented. I don't think Nikon made an actual vented hood for the Nikkor 50/1.4. Walz did at the time and it looks like this:

"vented" refers to the cut-outs that allow you to see through the hood when looking through the camera's viewfinder.

This is originally a chrome S2. The paintwork looks very good. The case is from an SP or S3. The lens is very desirable.

Erik.

This case will marr the original black paint trims on the vertical edges of the camera body. Get the original S2 one, the very well padded model with the two "descenders" on each side.

Yes, but then you'll need a 35mm viewfinder.

For someone not wearing glasses, the whole frame of the S2 viewfinder (outside the etched 50mm framelines) approx. equals what a 35mm lens will capture, so you can use the camera without a 35mm viewfinder from time to time, it kinda works out.

The one on the left I found last year for about EUR 35 on eBay. Maybe they are even cheaper now.

At the end of the day the good old Nikon Varifocal finder comes back to mind :



(generic and fine "Made in Japan" 48mm screw-in metal lens hood).

Stunning clean black dial, Nicolas! The lens looks really fine too. Are those shades still available?

Thanks, Erik. That shade was randomly found on eBay at auction with a "48mm lens hood" routine search. I assume it was made in the 1960s or 1970s. I didn't buy it from a store. With some patience I'm quite certain you can grab something equivalent sooner or later.

Nikon SP w/ Nikkor-S.C. 5cm/1.4 is the legendary gear.
What make it more is when you are lucky enough to own a Combo set
