F2SB Photomic body, black

£15,000.00

The item photographed may not be the actual model but is used for illustrative purposes only.

BRAND NEW AND UNUSED! A COLLECTOR HAS RELEASED THIS ULTRA-RARE CAMERA HE BOUGHT IN 1977 AND NEVER USED. THE CAMERA COMES IN ITS ORIGINAL NIKON BOX WITH INSTRUCTION MANUAL AND SHUTTER GUARD WHICH MUST BE REMOVED PRIOR TO FIRST ROLL OF FILM BEING PUT IN. ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE AS THIS IS THE RAREST VARIANT OF THE “STANDARD” F2. WE BELIEVE THIS IS THE LAST BRAND NEW F2SB LEFT IN THIS WORLD AND WILL BE A TREASURE IN ANY NIKON COLLECTOR’S CABINET. Serial Number 7707687. The F2SB bodies were produced in a small run spanning only 8 months and are the most sought after of all F2 “standard” bodies. The F2SB accepts pre-AI, AI and AIS lenses which feature a coupling fork. The body comes with a plastic spacer (to be removed prior to first use with a film).

  • VG-An item that falls below our regular level of gradings. Items in VG- condition will have excessive signs of use.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
