Nikon FA + 35-70mm f/3.5
PRESENTING THE 1984 GRAND PRIX WINNER. NIKON FA.
In Japan, there are probably more cameras critics and experts per capita than anywhere else in the world.
And recently, some of the most demanding of those critics got together to judge over 60 of Japan's newest cameras.
They mercilessly - and objectively - judged each camera for design. For performance. For reliability. And for ease of operation.
And when it was all over, the first-ever Grand Prix Camera Award went to the Nikon FA. But although this was the first-ever Grand Prix award, it wasn't the first-ever award for the FA.
Because in Great Britain, it also was recently named "Pratical Photography's Camera of the Year," and garnered "Camera Weekly's Award for Innovation."
In selecting the Nikon FA for these honors, we think the judges confirmed something professional photographers have known all along.
Nikon is the only choice
