Hi everybody,

I've both an F2A and an F2AS. The difference on the finishing of their prisms is evident, the DP11 (A) being simply painted while the DP12 (AS) has that kind of painting usually reserved for Nikon's titanum black bodies I know (F2 Titan, F3T), and some newer "pro" lenses like the 85/1.4D.
Fine. It could be only a paint difference but, as curiosity was ever growing, another day I gently applied different levels of pressure to both prisms and what I found was that the DP11 is somewhat flexible while the DP12 is solid as a rock, what makes me wonder if it's made of titanium. Oh, they're still intact, I'm very gentle with my hands
I've searched the web to confirm this but haven't found any word on it. Can any of you fellow Nikonians help me kill this curiosity?

Thanks,

José Azevedo
