A number of years ago, I sold off a number of film cameras in my conversion to digital. Of late, I've taken to shooting more film, so my itch for another manual focus Nikon grew. I already had the FE, FE2, FA, and FM2. They're all great cameras, but I still wanted another manual focus "pro model"
A young senior at University of Michigan is graduating, and relocating. He was quite anxious to sell, and obviously needed cash to help accommodate his relocation. He listed this F3-HP for several weeks, and finally lowered the price to something I considered reasonable. The camera came with an immaculate 50mm f/1.4 AI-s, 6 rolls of Tri-X and 4 rolls of Portra 400. A quick agreement was reached, and I was on my way. The camera was built in 1982, but it's as close to N-I-B as I've seen.
Last night I decided on another MD-4 in anticipation of my coming deal. A local dealer had one on eBay, I bought it, and picked it up later this morning. It has a few scratches from use, but it's fully functional and runs nicely.
