Some years ago I purchased an original F1 to compliment my A1. The A1 is sadly long gone, a victim of damp penetration under the pentaprism. I sold my F1 a year back by which time I had bought a secondhand Canon F-1N. The F-1N is a truly superb machine.

I bought a Canon F-1N 8 months ago. Canon F-1N (or Canon New F-1)is a top line professional camera of Canon, made from 1981.
