Nikon cameras, lenses, filters & other stuff - $1 (Westchester County, north of Bronx)

condition: good
You don't need to ask if anything is still available. I'm updating this post regularly. It is still available.

Terms: I'm based in lower Westchester and we will meet in a safe public place. Cash, no shipping, all sales final so test before you buy.

Nikon full-frame (FX) film-era AF screw-focus lenses, aperture ringed, with all caps (note: will fit DX but won't AF on most models except 7000 series):
-Nikon AF ED 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D wide angle zoom $175
-Tamron AF 28-200 $45

Manual focus, F-mount, aperture-ringed lenses with all caps (note, these are not modern AIS):
-Nikkor 50mm f1.4 ais $75
-Nikkor-N 24mm f2.8 ais $160
-Nikkor-S Nippon Kogaku 55mm f1.2 ai (solid forked) in near perfect condition. Minor dust inside but tested and working properly. Collectible, depending on who you believe. $250
-Vemar 28mm and 125mm (solid forked) ai lenses in great condition, both recently serviced. They shoot somewhat on the soft side, with the 125 being especially nice for portraits. $75 each.
Yes, Vemar, a mysterious brand of prime lenses that's hard to track down. These things pop up from time to time in the usual places and were a discount lens made by one of the major manufacturers, possibly Tokina. They had a big fat 500mm that was popular.

Manual bodies:
-Nikon FM body $60
-Nikkormat FT2 manual camera & ai lens kit in very good+ condition. Takes common LR44 batteries. A somewhat idiosyncratic camera with unusual operational features; look it up. $425 for the body, a generous assortment of accessories (such as a bag, filters, film & flash), the two Vemar lenses and Nikkor 55mm.
-Nikon focusing screen for an F2, F4 or any Nikon that allows you to switch them out. Type C, I believe. $10

AF film bodies:
-Nikon F4S pro body. Seals and cushion are good. It has some minor brassing but is in generally very good condition. Comes with an external battery pack, which differentiates it from the previous model F4. Bonus: load it up with a long lens and all the batteries and you can save gym membership. $275 firm.

-Nikon N90s with aux "short" battery compartment insert. This is an excellent semipro film camera, easy to use and known for superior tracking and perfect exposures every time. They came with a big external battery pack, guaranteed to impress strangers, but I also have an insert that makes the camera a lot lighter and more portable. It seems like a simplified F4 to me, and it does not suffer from the "sticky back" problem many of these models have. $95.

-Nikon Coolpix 8800 kit: a CCD-sensor body with 2 EN-EL7 batteries, memory cards, chargers, A/V cable and a bag. That's why you need this kit, the batteries or chargers. It's a surprisingly decent camera though, with VR, and would make a great knockaround body for those times you want good shots but are nervous about risking your baby. Going to a presidential rally in DC and concerned about rowdy crowds? This would be the camera to bring. $60.

-Nikon SB700 flash $75
-Nikon SB800 flash $150

-Star D tripod with fold-out copy extension post, old, solid and in great condition. Has multiple attachment points for cameras. Interesting piece. $40

***Items that are free with purchase of "non-free" items upon request, at my discretion, or cheap otherwise:

-Nikon N80 body

Kodak "bellows" roll-film folding camera that looks good and might even work, but it's damn cool to put on a shelf and you could tell people anything about it and they'd believe you (unless they know cameras).

Nikon MH18 battery charger, for D700.

Read "Hiking the Road to Ruins" 2015 revision, an immensely influential regional guide to exploring ghost towns, abandoned military sites, mines, mansions and tunnels in the NY area. Limitless ideas for photo ops. Great book, stunning photography. It makes you a smarter person to own it and once you do, you'll be more popular.
