Nikon FM2/T Year of the Dog 1994

£8,000.00

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

ULTRA RARE – COLLECTOR’S GRADE – NUMBER 62 OF 300 EVER MADE! PERHAPS THE LAST BRAND NEW ONE REMAINING IN THE WORLD. BOXED AND COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL PAPERWORK, CHINESE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION BOOKLET AND WARRANTY CARD. (STILL HAS IT’S SHUTTER GUARD INTACT TO BE REMOVED PRIOR TO FIRST USE.) The Nikon FM2/FM2n’s reputation as a tough, rugged and reliable camera was further enhanced when, during the late 1993 Nikon introduced the FM2/T.

It is identical to the standard FM2n, including its aluminium alloy chassis, except that the titanium is used for the top and base plates and the camera back.

No other specifications were changed and the FM2/T accepts all the same accessories. There’s also been a couple of special limited editions of the camera; the Year of the Dog version of which only 300 units were produced, was released in 1994 and has a picture of a dog’s head engraved on the front place next to the FM2/T badge.

The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac. The 12 zodiac animals are, in order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year-cycle. Years of the Dog: …1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030…
The FM2/T Year of the Dog was never exported to the UK. This brand new example is the 62nd example made and is a real collector’s treasure!

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.
