Modern Classic SLRs Series :
Various Nikon camera models - Message Board/Gu

Since with the inception of Nippon Kogaku until the current Nikon Corporation - they were probably hundreds of camera models as well as million of Nikkor optics being sold thus far. It is very hard to satisfy everyone intention when each surfer coming to this Pictorial History Website (first created since 1997). Over the last few years, I have constructed quite a number of sites featuring a selective Nikon camera models (Nikon F(based on Mike Liu's previous effort, the Nikon F2 series, F3 Series, Nikon F4, NIkon F5, the digital SLR series as well as the midrange models such as Nikon FM series, FA, FE series, Nikkormat/Nikomat and the compact EM/FG/FG20 etc..). Each of these featured model has their respective Message Board to support specific owner of each camera types. However, there are a number of very good Nikon SLRs (as well as the film and/or Digital compacts wer quite exciting too. But due to various reasons, I cannot featured them one by one. This Message Board was created just for that purpose - to provide a gateway for those that were not being featured. You may use it for whatever you think suitable - questions & answers (Q&A) or just make good use of it to share experience among one another. The use of this section of the photography SITE is not confined soly for this purpose, you may also make use of it for other photographic matters. Some of the remarks presented within the pictorial history site was entirely personal and I do not wish to influence any decision prior to any potential purchases or disposal of your equipment. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views as well. Enjoy.

i was reading on the site for the early non-ai nikkor-h 85mm f/1.8 and ive found that i have one of the early 5 element 3 group models. #260812. i cant say exactly when it was bought, but i know it was bought with an early black nikkormat FTn and the box the lens came in has a price tag of $219.99 so im assuming around 1967 when the FTn came out. im thiking of having the lens modded for AI so i can use it with my F4s and D200, but i dont know if this lens has any significance in its orgional state.

Hi Jfrederic:

Im not a rabid Nikon buff, but my feeling is that there must be some bad luck involved. I'm sure that a runaway motor can cause some damage to a camera; the Nikon FE is fairly robust, anything that breaks it would certainly break most SLRs made today.

As for the 50mm lens, if the problem is a loose feeling focus ring, my guess is that this is not a quality issue but a need for service. As a lens ages the grease in the focus helical dries out and the space that it had taken up becomes a gap. With cleaning and lubrication the lens should be like new again.

If a manual focus Nikkor lens feels inadequate, stay far, far away from the lenses that come on today's $1000 - plus digitals..... they really are awful by comparison (though their optical quality is generally good)

my question is can motor back ruin your camera? i bought new FE a few years ago and at that time bought a used MD-11 motor one point the switch on the motor stuck on and emptied the film canister.this resulted in a jammed film advance, shutter etc.$125.00 later (repair) shutter modual, sync etc.needlesss to say the motor back went in the junk pile.not many rolls and a year later it jams again (at yoesemite)so now i'm looking at another $125.sadly $250.00 comes real close to buying a new back. i have a 500mm mirrior lens a tele and 50mm nikon lens.out of the three the nikon is the least in Quality.(can hardly take your fingers off the lens with out changing focus.)does nikon have a Quality issue or is it my bad luck? - This was asked also your FE board. jfrederic

Hi Bob: The red bars are light leaks, probably from the door seals. If they get worse, eventually they will appear as white bars.
