Hi Gene: I wouldn't have thought that nameplate would have come on a camera of such late production. Shows what I know..... :)=

Rick: Thanks for your response to my query. I have learned that the Nikon F body I recently acquired had an eyelevel finder before the body came into my possession. Therefore the front nameplate is a little slanted in design for that finder I have been told. Sure enough, upon checking the nameplate of my other F with FTn finder, the nameplate sides are less slanted and more upright. So, I'll have to find the proper nameplate if I wish to use the FTn meter on this body. Gene

Hi gene: Any FTn prism should fit on a 70xxx body. Sometimes they are a very snug fit, though, and you may have to give it a bit of a whack on top of the prism to seat it.

HHHelp!! I recently acquired a black body Nikon F #703xxxx in very good condition. However, neither of my two FTn meters "seat" properly on this body. That is, the front portion of the meters with the two "holding pins" only seats about half way. Even a moderate amount of downward pressure doesn't seat the meters. Since both meters fit easily on another black F body, I assume some sort of adjustment is needed on the "newer: body. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Gene

Hi, I have just acquired a Nikon F Photomic T and have a problem with the head. The film speed dial (on top of shutter speed dial) is very slack and rotates very easily so won't hold it's position when lined up with the max aperture of lens. Also the whole dial seems very loose and wobbly and does not feel right at all! Can anyone suggest what the problem is? How tight should the film speed dial be - it doesn't feel as if rotating mine does anything at all! I have not tried meter yet as it needs batteries. Thanks for any help anyone can give! Regards, Norman De'Ath

Tom, when you remove the LENS from the camera... does the diaphragm stop down normally when you turn the ring? :)=
