Making room for one more
To say that I've had an on-again/off-again relationship with Nikons is something of an understatement. My first was a Nikon S rangefinder which I picked up around 1963; it had a fabulous lens, but that didn't stop me from selling it for a song in a fit of stupidity after shooting it a couple years. I then skipped over Nikon development for the next couple decades before buying one of the company's early CoolPix digitals. I kept that one just a couple years too; it wasn't a bad camera, but it became quickly obsolete and I gave it away to a neighbor. A Nikon EM that I found a couple years ago at a yard sale performed erratically and likely won't see much use. Now, I'm really pleased to have another shot at getting familiar with one of Nikon's great cameras from the film era.
