There is a tour of UK camera shops being promoted by Nikon. I caught it on Twitter and emailed myself a link to the flier.

Wow! Does that mean I can go and actually.....touch one?

Sorry, I don't mean to be sarcastic, but everyone seems to be turning into a camera groupie.

I'll stay at home and feel up my F3......

One day I'll get an F2 Titan, quite possibly the best all-manual SLR camera.

Gorgeous. Now that is real camera porn. I'll bet one of those doesn't come cheap.

eternumviti,

Roughly $2k in good shape. It's hard to justify, given that I've mostly gone to digital and rarely shoot 35mm film. (I would if I had a reliable E6 processor, but it seems they've all closed up.)

I still shoot film, but medium format now.

Joe

I was going to get a D810 to go with my D500 but tempted to hold on now and get one of these after they had chance to iron out any bugs .

It's a lovely looking camera, but i'm really not sure it's got much to offer than the fairly standard Olympus/Pentax cameras of that era offer, and much cheaper too.

Go any pick up a Pentax MX and marvel at the wonderfully large viewfinder that just blows away everything you get to see these days. It's got a light meter built in, and can tell the aperture you've selected (visible in the viewfinder through a clever window on the front of the prism), but it's a manual camera, so nothing much to go wrong other than the shutter to slow over time. Oh, and the shutter curtains are fabric, so tend to still be good these days.

The only thing to watch for with these is that the foam to reduce mirror bounce starts to degrade and can stick to the mirror - easy to find a replacement, but a bit of a fiddle. It's just like replacing the light seal, but with a mirror not to damage.

Sure, lots of other choices are available, and many of them far cheaper, but few SLRs look as nice as an F2 Titan. There's no logic in buying one today, especially at the typical asking price.

But they're sought after because they look cool and are rare -- and, importantly, because Nikon isn't in italic font.
