The FM2 was manufactured for only a brief period before the N version was introduced. In 1982 the FM2 became the first commercial production SLR to brake the speed barrier of 1/4000 sec shutter speed and 1/200 sec sync speed mainly due to a newly designed titanium shutter. In 1994, Nikon introduced a very limited quantity of a hand assembled FM2n Titanium version based on their immensely popular mechanical Nikon FM2n. The expensive and exclusive titanium camera body was officially discontinued in 1997 after a small number had been produced. This Limited Edition from Italy is supplied in a wooden sided display box with a hinged smoke coloured lid upon which is a metal plaque with states: Nikon FM2/T Limited Edition 452. Additionally, there a small metal plate which is fixed to the rear of the camera, to the left of the viewfinder port upon which is imprinted ‘Limited Edition 452’. It also comes complete with original Nikon warranty from Italy, plastic identification card, certificate of authenticity, instruction manual (Italian language), shutter protector and a round runner washer to use when the camera is mounted on a tripod to prevent marking the base plate.
