Hi - I recently acquired a Nikon F (sn 6970797) with FTn prism. However I cannot remove the prism. The lock lever at the front seems to operate and release properly, and the release button at the back pops the finder up at back side, enough to disengage the shutter speed dial. However, no matter how much I jiggle it about the prism does not come off completely. Am I doing something wrong or is this something that need an expert to look at?

Nikon F circa 1967
When operating the lever wind, there is a distinct roughness in the travel.
Towards the last 10-15% of the travel there is a distinct click and a difference in tension.
Is this a characteristic or a fault please

Hi Duane:

The highest serial number Nikon F I've owned was #7441009, so your 7450xxx isn't totally out of line.

These were the last series of Nikon F, produced in the summer and fall of 1973. They are often referred to as "Apollo" cameras, and are distinguished by having a plastic tip on the wind lever and a plastic self timer lever. There is a complete serial number listing here:

I have just received an all black Nikon F Series Camera with a Nikkor F1.4 S.C lens. I was trying to research the history and the S/N appears to be above the manufactured range, it is in the series of 7450xxx. I am trying to research the age and exact model.

Can anybody help me.
