Nikon NIKKOR-H Auto 85mm F/1.8 (non-Ai) Camera Lens. Used. $145

The fast f/1.8 aperture of this lens was once the fastest lens among many Nikkor telephoto lenses introduced during that period. The relatively large maximum aperture of this lens facilitates easy focusing under poor light conditions and is especially suited for indoor and night photography.

The "moderate" 85mm focal length and the convenience of direct single lens reflex viewing with SLRs provides proper image magnification and natural perspective, making this lens among few favorite optic for those who often covers half length portraiture, theatrical photography and as well as in photojournalism.

Many Nikon faithful have rated this lens highly for its high resolution and outstanding contrast produce across its entire aperture settings and focusing range.

Buy the lens and add the working Nikormat FT2 camera body for $20 ( manufactured from 1975 to 1977).

The Nikkormat FT2 is built like an absolute tank. It has an all-metal construction, and as such it's pretty heavy.  It weighs in at 1.7 pounds (780g) without a lens! It's a metered manual camera, meaning you set the aperture and shutter speed yourself. It has the split-image rangefinder spot in the center, with a microprism collar.  A wider circle is etched into the screen to show the boundary of the center-weighted area. On the right side you have the meter display, showing a centering needle pointing to + or - on either end, or in the center to indicate correct exposure.  At the bottom of the screen is a shutter speed display, with the selected shutter speed in white and the next and previous steps printed in yellow.  This display changes with the position of the shutter speed ring, and it's lit by the scene (so don't expect to be able to see it in low light).
