Nikon Manual Focus cameras

All of our Nikon cameras are carefully checked. Our policy is to offer these iconic cameras to you without the usual worries; i.e. all our cameras are in excellent mechanical working order regardless of their cosmetic condition. A typical Nikon camera sold by us will already have had the mirror damping foam or light seals replaced, a common issue owing to the age of these cameras. The built in meter in the photomic prism is also examined and can be assumed to be in working order unless stated otherwise. However the accuracy and longevity of meters of this age cannot be guaranteed.

Guide to our grading

Our condition ratings are used as a guide, we endeavour to give the most complete and accurate description of each item, however we aren’t always perfect.

Our cameras and Lenses will always come with front, rear or body caps. They do not come with hoods, boxes, manuals, etc. unless otherwise stated.

All of the equipment we sell has been inspected and is in full working order and comes with 6 months guarantee (12 months guarantee for Leica mechanical bodies and lenses).

As New Condition – The item will be unmarked and in the same condition as purchasing a brand new item.

Mint Condition – No visible marks. The item will have been lightly used but extremely well looked after.

Nr. Mint condition – Item may show some very faint rub marks on body or barrel but otherwise would be described as Mint.

Mint- condition – Item may show some very fine marks on body or barrel.

Exc+++ condition – Item may show light signs of wear and minor marks on body or barrel.

Exc++ condition – Would overall be in clean condition. Light cosmetic scratches or rubbing marks may show in places. Paint might have lightly been wearing off in a few area (usually on the edges).

Exc+ condition – Would overall be in average condition. Light cosmetic marks may show in more places. In the case of many cameras, wear on the edges might have just gone through the paint where minor brass will be evidence as a result. 

Exc condition – Item will show moderate signs of use (not abuse); moderate marks or loss of paint on edged surfaces. 

User condition – Heavily used. Item will show significant cosmetic wear, but will still  be in good working order unless otherwise stated.

Most of our used equipment is from keen amateurs or collectors and is in full working order and comes with a six months guarantee (12 months for Leica M & R series), unless otherwise stated.

Our lenses will rarely have any heavy marks on the elements or fungus inside; if they do we try our best to point out all the cosmetic marks and imperfections.
