My problem with the rangefinder Nikons is the eyepiece diopters. For my S2's I have them (got them from Bob R. personally), but for the other models they are unobtainable. Without eyepiece diopters I cannot use these cameras!

Erik.

There is a way to modify diopters for the Nikon FG/EM to fit on the Nikon SP. See here.

Congrats!
Judging by the self timer shape, and number of rings on the frame counter cover, your SP is from the first half to two thirds of the production run. Does it have a titanium shutter?

Thanks, Jon I'm very happy with it! The focusing is just the slightest bit stiff, so I'll have to just send it out for a cleaning sometime soon. The viewfinder is great. I love the parallax-corrected frame lines. I shot two rolls with it since yesterday that I'll be posting later on tonight!

Edit: and it does not have the titanium curtains, but I think once I get it cleaned, I'll just have them replace the cloth with the titanium

When I read this post last week I would have said stick with the Nikon. But start of last week I found a mint Titanium M6 which was being sold by someone I trusted and he had had it CLA'd, again by someone I trust and I pushed the button. I sold my previous M6 2 years ago and have always missed it. Been using my Canon P, Retina IIIc and Xpan for 35mm.After 4 rolls in a week and some outstandingly good negs I would say you can't go past an M. Also walking around with M6 + M9 was just heaven over the weekend.

I look forward to seeing them. I may pick up a Nikon RF from KEH as well.

Cheers!
