first-known-nikon-i-camera-serial-60922
→ Update on my previous post - the pictures shown by Westlicht for the first known Nikon I camera had a serial number 60924 and not 60922 as mentioned in their description. No sure what is going on, but I was told that #60924 is not a complete original and has repair parts (it should have internally 3 exact same numbers and it has only two numbers and they are not the same). The above picture actually shows the first known Nikon I camera with serial number 60922.

  
Nikon will not appeal and will pay the CHF 12 million fine for restricting parallel imports.
