    The F2 body was introduced in 1971 as a successor to the F. Many superb features, including:
    – mirror lockup function
    – 100% viewfinder
    – interchangeable screens and prisms
    – aperture and film speed displays in the viewfinder (when used with a DP-1 prism)
    – removable back, to allow a 250, 750 or motordrive to be fitted

    The F2 body was also fitted with this standard, non-metering, DE-1 prism. The DE-1 prism has a built in contact for the flash ready light of the SB-2 and SB-7E flash units.
    Condition details:
    Cosmetic: Light surface wear to the exterior. Slight ripple to the top plate by the film advance lever suggesting a minor knock. A little brassing at the corners.
    Optical: A little dust on the mirror and screen.
    Mechanical: Shutter speeds are all working and accurate.
    Light seals: Light seals are poor. They have gone very sticky or crumbled away. Upon request replacement foam can be supplied (fitting is straight forward, though can be a little fiddly), or we can recommend a firm that will replace the foam for around £26.
    Cosmetic Condition: 4
    (Signs of light use, but not misuse. No other cosmetic damage.)
    Functional Condition: E
    (Everything functioning. Major functions have recently been professionally tested.)
