Nikkorex 'F' w/ 50mm f/2 (#286)

Nikkorex F w/ Nikkor-H 50mm f/2

This is a 1965 and later version Nikkorex 'F' body, with a 1965/6/7 Nikkor-H Auto 50mm f/2 lens, complete with a Nikon HS-1 lens hood, and a vintage 52mm Nikon clip-on front cap. These were the introductory Nikon cameras and lenses that came to the US market to help promote the Nikon line of pro-level camera and lens systems of the time.

The included lens is in excellent overall condition, with minimal signs of use, and the bright-work, barrel and legend are all clean, clear and legible. Optically, the glass is in pristine condition, and no optical elements have haze, fungus, separation, or other anomalies. Everything operates smoothly, and is fully functional, with full aperture control of the clean/dry blades. This 'Non-Ai' lens would operate on any Nikon F-Mount film body, and almost all of their digital bodies as well, when used in non-matrix or in stop-down metering mode. It would also work well on many non-Nikon digital bodies with an appropriate adapter.

The Nikkorex body is in excellent overall cosmetic condition, but has major mechanical issues. There is a minimal amount of wear, and some minor finish abrasions to the bright-work, but the shutter will only fire at one speed, regardless of what's selected, but does remain open - as expected - in the 'Bulb' setting. The self-timer is working at all settings, as is the depth of field lever. The viewfinder and mirror are functional and clear to view and compose, with no major dust/debris to be distracting or interfere with your visibility.

The meter is not responsive to light, as it's needle appears to be binding internally and gets stuck in mid-range. It is in excellent overall cosmetic condition, with very minor wear from use. The legends are clean, clear and legible.

You will receive the camera body, the detachable meter, the 50mm f/2 lens, the Nikon HS-1 hood and Nikon front cap, with a generic rear lens cap. You will receive everything as-pictured and as-described, with no other items included.

  • The lens was tested on Sony mirrorless bodies, and a Nikon D5200 for digital use, and on multiple Nikon F-Mount bodies to confirm full mechanical operations. Neither the lens and/or body has been 'film tested'.
