Yes, the F2 is on an upswing, and are cheap (at the moment). It is a solid camera, worth sending to Sover Wong to overhaul it and the Photonic finders. Soven even has a few Modifications for the Body and some of the Photomic finders.

Here are a few from my trip to the Indianapolis Zoo the other day... Nikon F2, DW-1, Nikon 24mm f/2.8 Ais, Tmax 400 @ 400, Tmax Developer 1:4

Hi Pete, these look pretty good. Are you scanning your own negatives?

Yes, I have an Epson V700, I use the supplied 35mm holders... they are coded to tell the scanner what film holder is being used, and therefore the framing is automatic.

I typically scan at 3200dpi with 35mm AND with B&W I scan as 16bit Grayscale... and as a TIFF. This makes for a file size around 75mb and about a 5000x4800 file.

I make basic level adjustments and add a small amount of unsharp mask sharpening...

All with the supplied Epson Scan software.

 

Then into Lr and finished up in Ps where I spot, and a use a few Topaz plugins.... Clarify and Detail mostly. 

 

Thank you...
