Canon F-1 vs. Nikon F

Two 1970s heavyweights battle it out (well sort of).

canon f1 vs nikon f

The Canon is from 1978 and the Nikon is from 1972. To me, the clear winner is the F-1. It’s a more robust camera body and the Canon FD lenses are as good as if not better than the Nikkors. Besides, you have to remove the entire baseplate and back (they are one unit) to be able to load film – not the easiest of things to do while bouncing around in a small boat or a safari vehicle. Just sayin’.

f1 v f

Which camp are you? Canon or Nikon? Or Olympus or Minolta?

Thanks for stopping by!
