The game changer
Nov 16, 2011

I bought a nicely preserved F yesterday:

Serial # is low, it's a vintage 1960, but has a 1963 photomic viewfinder/exposure meter:

Reading up on this camera, it seems to have pushed German camera manufacturers (which were pre-eminent at the time: Leica, Contax, Rollei etc.) permanently towards the sidelines. The F mount wouldn't exist without this camera it is said. Anyway, as a new proud owner of this beast, I just wanted to share these snaps and bits of info.
Thanks for your interest, and happy shooting!
