The #Nikon #F2 is a professional level, interchangeable lens, #35mm film, single-lens reflex (#SLR) camera. It was manufactured by the Japanese optics company Nippon Kogaku K. K. (Nikon Corporation since 1988) in Japan from September 1971 to 1980.
The Nikon F2 is an all-metal, mechanically-controlled (springs, gears, levers), manual focus SLR with manual exposure control. The camera itself needed no batteries, though the prism light meter did (and of course the motor drive if added).
The F2AS Photomic (DP-12 head) was the most advanced F2 version and the chrome version with Nikkor AI 50 mm f/1.4 lens had a US list price of $1278 in 1978. (SLR selling prices were typically 30 to 40 percent below list. That's C$5018 in today's dollars!! using a 35% discount off list) This, the last version of the Nikon F2 Photomic, has become the most desired and collected F2 today.
