Yeah, another Nikon F.

 I wasn't planning to buy another Nikon F (famous last words) but Joan had a beast in the used section, a black Nikon F Photomic FTN with the F36 Motor Drive. My brother has a motor drive equiped Nikon F but I think its in chrome, can't remember. So I have this delightful beast from 1969, like it needs eight AA Batteries to move the film advance beast and weigh as much as an F5 but nowhere as ergonomic, bear in mind the beast is a year younger than I am and with the number of Nikon F's I have, I can cosplay Dennis Hopper's role as the strung out photo journalist in Apocalypse Now. 

Another thing I got from Burlington Camera was a Nikkor Q 200 F4, not an expensive lens, but one that's been around since the beginning in the Nikkor lens line up. Loved by photo journalists to pull in subject matter up in close. Mounting the lens to the motor drive equiped F gave the body balance, much like attaching a zoom to your Nikon F5.
