Introduced in the mid-1970s, the Nikkormat FT2 is the refined followup to the Nikkormat FTN. Compared to its older sibling, it has the advantage of using a modern long-lasting 357 silver oxide battery for its light meter (available as an option). And like all the mechanical Nikkormats, this camera is combines tank-like build quality with a generous array of advanced features (eg depth of field preview; mirror lockup, auxiliary light meter readout on top of camera). 

The Nikkormat cameras were frequently used by professionals because of their reliability and faster flash sync speed compared to the top-of-the-line Nikon F2. 

Condition notes
We film tested this camera and it delivered excellent negatives. In addition we verified the shutter speed accuracy with a shutter tester. The only noteworthy flaw is a small black speck in the viewfinder. It's in good cosmetic conditino (see photos). The included Tokina 28mm lens is in very good condition as well.
