Chrome Nikon FE in Excellent Condition w/ AI Nikkor 50mm f/2 Lens
Introduced in 1978, the FE was the lighter, more compact version of the Nikon EL2. It shared the same circuitry and lovely match-needle viewfinder display. Because the FE was born just after Nikon's adoption of the AI (Automatic Aperture Indexing) system, it features a flip-up AI lever, allowing the mounting of unmodified pre-AI Nikkor lenses, making very versatile among Nikon enthusiast bodies. This feature would not be found on the later FE2. Shutter speeds are 1/1000 - 8 sec. and the FE can be operated in aperture-priority automatic or metered manual modes. The shutter is electronically controlled for excellent accuracy and has a backup mechanical speed of 1/90 of a second. This FE is in perfect mechanical and very good cosmetic condition (there is a name engraved on the bottom plate, and some slight paint wear). The lens is in excellent optical, mechanical, and cosmetic condition with just a couple of small scuffs on the front lip of the barrel. New light seals and mirror bumper have been installed and the camera has been film tested. Brand-new genuine Nikon eyepiece ocular. Two brand new Energizer high-capacity 357 silver oxide cells come with the camera, packaged separately. Weight is 810 grams for the camera and lens. Feel free to contact us with any inquiries.
