SORRY...THE PACKAGE HAS BEEN SOLD. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYBODY.

Offering as a complete package to continental US only. This camera has been lightly used over the last few years due to back issues and Covid. A few months ago I finally went digital, purchasing a mint Nikon D610. I figured I would continue to shoot film, but I haven't picked up this camera since I got the D610 and figured it was time to pass on this sweet camera to someone who would use it.

Near Mint Nikon F100 35mm film camera (US model) with no scratches or dings (pictures coming tomorrow). Ken Rockwell currently calls the F100 the 2nd best film camera ever. He used to call it the best until Nikon released the F6 and gave the "best" title to that camera. Here is his review:

Also included is an excellent condition Nikon 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5D AF zoom lens. The lens is very clean with minor indications of use on the barrel. The lens comes with front and rear caps, a 52mm Tiffen UV filter and the correct HB-6 lens hood.

Ken Rockwell really liked this lens. Here is his review:

Manuals are included for both the camera and flash (see below). A Magic Lantern Guide to the F100 is also included.

EXTRAS:

* Unused Lithium battery holder for the camera in the original box.

* 2 rolls of Fujicolor 200 film - 36 exposure.

* wired external remote shutter release, locks for time exposures.(3rd party).

* Compact Nikon SB-23 flash. This is a freebie as there is corrosion on the contacts in the battery compartment. If you can clean them you will have a nice little flash. I would have cleaned them, but I lent my Dremel rotary tool to my brother and he is out of town for the holiday. As such I have not factored the flash in the price.

* 4 each AA batteries for camera and flash. Will be removed for shipping.

* Strap for camera as shown.

PRICE: I am asking an extremely reasonable $250 for the package. I do not want to break it up...sold as a whole only.

I will ship insured Priority Mail for an additional $15. If you pay using PayPal friends and family I will cover the shipping cost. I would highly prefer PayPal payment only.

Hit me with a private message (PM) for further info

F100 Body alone at KEH goes for more than that... good deal. If I still used film, I'd bite.

As would I, if all my old film Nikons and Dad's Leica weren't sitting / waiting for a mission in the camera cabinet.

Thanks for the confirmation. I'm just trying to make sure it finds a good home...the same as the gentleman who sold it to me. He was the original owner, had switched to digital and was retiring to Florida. I told him he could have gotten a much higher price on eBay at the time, but he said he just wanted it to go to someone who would appreciate it...and I did.

It's a real pleasure to use.

It is a classic, described by some as the ideal 35mm film camera. The FM3 is another one that gets that description from time to time.

I own the F100 as well as the F6. Both are excellent film cameras.

Ken must have never shot with an F5!

Yes, the FM3 and FM3a are both priced very expensively. I noticed that one of my used dealer's eBay site has an FM3a body for $999.99 Buy-It-Now.
