1969 Nikkor F is an extremely rare German market Nikon F that
has been rebranded "Nikkor" to avoid confusion (and probably
lawsuits) with Zeiss Ikon. Nikon, Zeiss Ikon. Whatever. Even
the Zeiss Ikon Icarex 35 CS would be difficult
to confuse with the Nikon F. No comparison. This rather uncommon black
version has the non-metered pentaprism finder known as the "eye-level"
finder (as opposed to the "waist level"). Nikon made all the
accessories available to the Nikon F in other counties available to the
German market with the Nikkor name during this period. An expensive
proposition for such a relatively small market. This example comes with
the f1.4 / 50mm Nikkor-S lens. This example also has the electric motor
drive (F-36) plate installed.
