£7,500.00

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

NEAR NEW OUTFIT! Fitted with a 50mm f/1.4 Ai lens. Exceptionally rare and almost unheard of in this condition. The body, lens, data back, motor drive and aperture control unit appear unused and only the charger (for the battery of the aperture control unit) shows signs of handling. See reference http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf2/f2/variants/f2data/index.htm The back, coupled to a special (F2 Data body) contains a mechanical clock/watch and calendar unit which are illuminated by a built-in flash system with this data recorded onto the side of the film. Additionally, data could be recorded by hand onto a special insert and this writing too would be photographed onto the 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.
