Nikon F2 Titan (titanium) body

£4,500.00

Grade: MINT

NEW/UNUSED. FLAWLESS AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE. Nikon introduced a rare and expensive version of the iconic F2 in tiny quantities with prism cover, back, lens surround area, top plate and bottom plate made of this (at the time) expensive and unusual metal. The already ultra-robust F2 body (picked by NASA for it’s demanding space program) was further strengthened by this light and hard (Ti) element (rather than alloy) material. The F2 Titan is one of the most eagerly sought of all Nikon reflex bodies and few are ever seen in unused condition. All body numbers commence with the characters F2T 79xxxxx irrespective of year of manufacture. Ours is numbered 794694. This F2 Titan is complete with original numbered maker’s box, original plastic shutter cover. Remarkable find and presenting a remarkable opportunity! There were 4,558 F2 Titans manufactured.
