    Exclamation Nikon S2 + Nikkor-S.C. 50mm f1.4 Black Ring

    I have here my Nikon S2.

    It's in user shape, but like all Nikon's seem pretty resilient in operation.

    Nikon S2 with Nikkor-S.C. 5cm f1.4 (black ring)
    Body Serial: 6167267

    - The body covering is actually fairly good, no peeling anywhere.
    - Viewfinder is pretty clear, with a very bright contrasty rangefinder patch. (My goodness, the S2 is the perfect 50mm camera I think)
    - E.P. marking on the rewind dial.
    - Noticeable dings on the bottom corners and middle of bottom plate.
    - For all I know it could've went through Nam.
    - Strap lugs are little loose
    - Shutter speeds 1/1000 to 1/30th operate beautifully. Shutter speeds 1, 1/2, work okay once you lift finger off shutter, shutter speeds 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, they just keep shutter open til your release and the shutter closes (acts like B)
    - Shutter curtains look great, no holes or damage
    - Hotshoe has some corrrosion on the hotshoe itself, unsure if the wire underneath is the cause. Unsure if Hotshoe even works.
    - Bottom left side of body has a bit chipped off, where the back door slides in (see photo)

    Serial: 373800
    - Cleaning marks and some light scratches on the front element
    - Aperture blades show some oil though none of it on the internal elements
    - Rear element is clean
    - Black shell looks good too
    - Filter ring works great, i've been using
    - Aperture ring detents are there.

    I think with some minor TLC it'll be a wonderful S2 again.

    As ever, More photos can be seen here:

    Price is what I have into it, $370 shipped and PayPal included in CONUS.
