Camera has been fully tested as working. Comes with 90 day warranty. This camera has been film tested. See below for technician evaluation:
Cosmetic condition: Very Good - Overall clean condition but with a few scruff marks and some paint loss on top of the prism. There are also other various marks along the body exterior. The bottom plate has heavy cosmetic wear and paint loss around the tripod socket as a result from the tripod plate being screwed in and removed. There a few specs of stray debris which are visible from inside of the viewfinder. This is purely cosmetic and has no effect on image results. The frame number all the way on the right side of the viewfinder is faded but the rest of the numerals and symbols illuminate fine. The frame number is also available on the top LCD display which is working perfectly.
Film transport gears: Excellent - Camera is loading, advancing and rewinding correctly.
Shutter speeds: Excellent - Tested as working and accurate at all speeds.
Light Meter: Excellent - Working, tested against professional meter accurate in all lighting conditions.
Hotshoe: Excellent - Hotshoe and external PC port tested and properly firing an external flash.
Film Compartment: Clean and in excellent condition
Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Lens: Excellent - Autofocus with a Nikon F5 is quick and accurate. The lens is adjusting and focusing precisely without a lot of wondering that is typically found on older systems. The glass optics are clean with no scratches, haze, fungus or separation.
Our goal is to provide an accurate, detailed description for each used item that we sell. We focus on testing the most important aspects related to the functionality. Please note that with older vintage items, a slight degree of imperfection is to be expected.
