*another Nikon F3 with 50mm f1.8 - 6.5/10 condition  (no flash no drive no 1.2 lens)



The Nikon F3 has always been one of Nikon's best pro cameras. There are still plenty of people using them today. Nikon continued to make the F3 even after it introduced the F4 and the F5. The F3 was in production from 1980 to 2001 making it the longest lasting production camera.

The F3 is manual focus.

The F3 works fine with every manual focus lens made since 1959, and works with all autofocus AI-P, AF, AF-I, AF-D and AF-S lenses so long as they aren't gelded (G). "Works with" means metering and focus works great, but of course you'll need to focus all of these by hand.

You'll most often see the slightly newer F3HP version. The HP, or High Eyepoint version, has a slightly larger eyepiece with slightly less magnification so you can hold your eye slightly farther away.
