Hello! My first post here at APUG! My questions are: Where can I find a rubber eyepiece for the EL2? Does anyone know the nikon number for it, and are there any alternatives? Where can I find a seal replacement for it? Any advice, adoration for the camera, sources of EL2 accessories and tips would be deeply appreciated. I have an N-80 that I use mainly for slides, but I always was fascinated by those METAL cameras. I just took a chance and purchased a used EL2 on eBay after looking at the specs at the MIR photography site - it looked really good in the photos, and there is a refund policy in case it is a lemon (which I hope it's not). This is my first manual camera and i'm looking forward to feeling the glide of the mechanical film advance lever lol I'll be using my existing lenses that I have (the kit 28-70, 50 1.8D and a 50-135 3.5 AIS - which i'll be able to meter with yayy!) I love photography! What fired up my juices was when 2 out of 4 of my photos were runner-ups in a photography contest, and were displayed in a museum here in town. Needless to say, since then i've been learning everything I can. I wish I could afford a larger format, as i've seen some prints that were just superb from 4x5 and 8x10 view cameras, and i've had format-envy ever since. But for now it's 35mm, so 35mm is my friend! Sorry for the ramble, and I am looking forward to being an active participant at APUG!
