My introduction to Nikon autofocus cameras was a bit of a traumatic experience. My wife and I were touring the US for 2 months and I had a Nikkormat FTN. In LA I decided that I needed a tele lens as the only lens I owned was a 50mm lens. I purchased a 70-210 lens at Fishermans Wharf and we carried on with our tour. During the last week we ended up at the Motel 6 in Kissammee where we took in Disney etc. I decided that as the holiday was almost over I could afford to buy an auto camera and ended up buying a N5005 from Victor's in Kissammee.
The next day we went to Cape Kennedy to see the space station I took a spool of film there and I was impressed with the camera and the 70-210 lens. Got back to the motel and handed the film in at the gas station at the motel entrance for processing. We went across the road to visit a shop and when we returned to the room we had been cleaned out and all we posessed were the clothes we were wearing, our personal documents, money and airtickets. 2 Months of photographs gone and the only photos to show were the ones taken at Kennedy. Next day we went into Orlando and at Wolf Cameras I replaced the N5005, 70-210 lens and bought a 50mm lens as well. I told the salesman that I wish that I could get another FTN and he sold me his personal one along with a 35, 50 and 135 lens. I still have this equipment.
A couple of days later we flew out from Orlando on 4th Luly 1993 for home.
