The Last Nikon WLF Camera?

Over the past few years, I have become enamored with the use of WLF on certain cameras. Thanks, Rolleiflex and HB!!!

Just thinking though, was the F5 the last Nikon that had a WLF option?

Yup. Hard to find that finder though. The F4 WLF is a little more plentiful. The camera is more compact too. Then again, I'm partial to the F4 over all other AF cameras.

Thanks, Phil.

I sold my F5 years ago to pay for something (?)...and miss it. What a tank and with the MF-28, it was high tech for me at the time. I would love another mint F5 with the data back and a WLF!

I have tons of slide film to burn!!!!

Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Hasselblad 500cm, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).

I do all my own black and white developing at home.
