Looking for Nikon help. Please direct me.

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Konica 35mm SLRs : One Thread

I have a Konica ft-1 and love it. I have a lot of great old Konica lens that I'm also happy with. However, a friend offered to sell me a used Nikon 4004s w/ a 23-70mm 1:3.3 -4.5 zoom lens and leather case and instruction manual for $200. He lent it to me and told me to use it for a week and let him know if I wanted it. My first impression was to jump on the deal. It has auto focus, a pop up flash, shutter speeds to 1/2000. It is very light weight compared to my Konica. That is what bothers me. It feels like a toy in my hands. It's plastic construction. I'm not sure if that is good or bad. Can you direct me to a web page like this one, but directed to Nikon users? If you have an opinion I would love to hear it. Thanks.

Thanks for answer to Nikon question.

Thank you Gerald, for your prompt answer to my question. I went to the hyper-texted URL you provided and found the answer to my question. In short, the Nikon 4004s that my "friend" had offered to sell me is a dog (ruff, ruff)!

I have found this "Konica BB" to be a wealth of information.
