    Do I correctly surmise that you have an F2 body, but no finder for it?

    Just in case you don't already know, there are several different finders that will fit that body, not just the DE-1.

    The DE-1, of course, is the most basic pentaprism finder, without any metering.

    There also the DP-1, DP-2, DP-3, DP-11, and DP-12 finders, which, when installed, make your camera an F2 Photomic, an F2S, and F2SB, an F2A, or an F2AS, respectively. These finders contain light meters.

    The DP-1 and DP-11 have mechanical meter-needle meters, while the DP-2, DP-3, and DP-12 have LED-display meters.

    The DP-1, DP-2, and DP-3 finders use the older aperture-coupling shoe linkage, and are fully-compatible with all non-AI lenses as well as with any AI lenses that are equipped with that shoe; while the DP-11 and DP-12 use the newer AI linkage, and are only fully-compatible with AI lenses.

    There are also two waist-level finders, the DW-1 and the DW-2; and an “action finder”, the DA-1, which offers extra eye-relief.

    Yes, I am aware of the many finders...Thanks for the rundown on the available finders..
    but, right now I want the DE-1, I may want the DP-11, or DP-12 later with Ai indexing, Or just a DP-1 or DP-2 for Prong Indexing.
    A DW-1 is interesting, and I may like that for some of my Street Photography also.. (I can do that now, but, w/o the glare guard the DW-1 offers plus the magnifier).

    Still looking for the finder in good shape preferably Chrome and preferably one for the F2. Although the one for the original F will fit also
