Description

Complete with maker’s box. Launched in 1977 the F2AS Photomic offered the most sophisticated metered prism among all finders available for the Nikon F2. F2AS was also regarded by many Nikon fans and collectors alike as being the most collectible among all regular production Nikon SLR models as it represented the best and finest example of camera body mechanical excellence of the seventies stretching the design and precision production to the limit.

In fact, when the electronic Nikon F3 was introduced officially to replace the Nikon F2, the F2AS was commanding a higher premium in its retailed price than the new third generation professional camera. The F2AS was the very last all-mechanical Nikon camera with removable Photomic finder and incorporated the new AI (Auto Indexing) system.

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.
