Hi James: Most camera eyepieces have a power of about -1 diopter: this just means that looking into the eyepiece is like looking at something one meter away, rather than at infinity. Most people find this a more comfortable distance to focus at. If you know your prescription, and if you can focus comfortably on things one meter away, my suggestion would be to get an eyepiece lens of the same power as your prescription. If you can only focus on very distant objects with your prescription, then you'll have to add 1 diopter of extra power to it for the eyepiece. rick :)=

I have a Nikon F with Photomic FTn head, Nikkor 50mm f2 lens. Yesterday, I tried out a Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens and found Ihad problems focusing. My eyes are not so great, so what dioptre correction do I need for a prescription of +1.75 or +2.0. (+2.75 or +3.00?) I would prefer to use my glasses! The more I read, the more confused I get, to quote one article: "Nikon says that their prisms have a built-in dioptre of -1, and the rating of the added dioptre (+5, -3, etc.) is the dioptre power of the combined dioptre and prism eyepiece. Thus, a -3 dioptre is, by itself, a -2 lens". Cheers James

I have seen a Nikon F camera (serial #68xxxxx) but all wordings on front and top of camera body, even the silver plate in the DE1 prism is "Nikkor". Do anyone know about it? Is it a rare model? Regards,Angus

Nikon F early bodies (manufactured before 1965) have to be modified to be fitted with Photomic T viewfinder (and newer ones). But is there any problem to install properly the first Photomic prism (the non TTL metering one) in a body manufactured after 1966 ? Charles

Does anyone out there have a recommendation for a ROCK STEADY tripod and head combo? I don't care if it's heavy. I don't care if it won't collapse down to a small size. I don't really even care if it's bulky or ugly (well not too ugly). And I don't even care if it's expensive. I want a very high quality, precision-made support system for my F and F2 cameras (maybe even for a Hasselblad H), with smooth-operating controls, ball-swivel head (for leveling), preferably with adjustments similar to pro video tripods like where you can dial in any amount of resistance to movement in any axis (so you can muscle it a little harder and move the frame even after you've "tightened it down." I really don't like all the light weight tripods everybody seems to carry in the stores nowadays.
