In Topic: Opinions on the Nikkor 55 macro lens

30 November 2019 - 11:42 AM

I've just been using my Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8 on my Nikkormat EL today, my Micro-Nikkor 60/2.8 AF-S G ED usually lives on my F100. Mine is a 509xxx and still working perfectly.

In Topic: Nikon FM (S/N 21xxxxx) Questions

Is this the early FM with the knurled grip around the shutter button? The switch around the button is to enable use of the motor drive.

I have two Nikkormats. I have an EL and an FTn. I prefer the EL because the batteries are readily available (PX28). Finding the battery compartment took a while though.

It also offers aperture priority as well as manual with stepless metering similar to the FE. It came with the AR-1 which would normally cost me more than the camera did. Which was £15 for the body. The FTn was about £30 with the Nikon 50mm f2 lens.253c35b364f3e336474378da840b51eb.jpga8128191dfbcabcc8b17a582fcbaa1ec.jpg

Film is alive and well. Kodak have brought out a new slide film, Ektachrome. New films come out quite regularly from different brands.

I own more than 150 film cameras 20 of those are Nikon. I've paid less for cameras than I have for film. I shoot more film than I do digital. I think makes you think more about each shot because of the cost per shot.

I have the F801 and F801s which I believe is the equivalent of the n8008. I use the F80 more than that or the F90x. More than these I would use my FM2n or FE.

I also have a Nikkormat FTn but use my EL more because of the readily available PX28 battery. What battery does the FT2 use?
