To every man his Nikon F2

Post by Julio1fer » Sun Sep 03, 2017 9:38 pm

Hard for me to write in the forum, thinking of our Australian mod and of Harvey. But the show must go on. Courage to all.

They asked me what did I want for my birthday. I wanted a black body. It came from Japan.

Test roll, Pan F+, mostly awful weather.

A 105mm f/2.5 is on its way. Maybe I get to shoot with some other camera this year. We'll see.

Thanks for looking1

The F2 is the one camera I can truly say I lusted after.

Thanks for the comments. It is reassuring to use a Photomic finder that works. The F2 corrects most of the little quirks of the F, just as stated. A heck of a camera. Almost as good as the K1000 :crazy: .

Pretty.
If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.
