My green Nikonos V was an amazing find on Craigslist here in Philadelphia. I got it with the 35mm lens and a new set of seals for only $25. The owner had used it once on holiday then stuck it in the closet. Never been flooded and barely used.
Now I always keep a roll of 1600ISO film in it since I mainly take it out in the rain. I'm never in the water anywhere around here but it can get quite rainy so it is a great camera to use. Fantastic for carrying on a bicycle as well since I'm confident it can handle any vibration from riding as well.
And it's sooooo quiet. Much quieter than any other film camera I've ever owned, save for the original Konica Hexar.

That’s a stellar find Phil, Love the Olive!

Always looked at them but never owned one.

A few lenses at a antique mall not far away but no body!

Buy the lenses, especially the 35mm and the hard-to-find 80mm. The body will eventually find its way to you.

Phil, I took this one with my green one! FYI I ate it big time on my skateboard with this camera. It flew down the street like a hockey puck and just had a few minor scrapes. Anything else I own would have esploded into a meelion pieces. And yes, the muffled feel of the shutter is something else. I really think this is the best street camera around, with its huge VF, AE, fantastic lens, and untouched durability.
I took the 35mm lens apart (a donor beater one used for this pic) to remove the front protective glass, as I wanted to see how it would perform w/o it. In doing so I discovered how tiny the actual lens is, and that I did not have to take it apart, just remove the front o-ring...

Nikonos V, probably HP5



And the tape measure? to make sure f2.5 coincided with minimum focal distance. I liked it so much I left it in the image.
