Nikon DS-1 EE pricing

Does anybody here know what I can expect to pay for a DS-1 for a Nikon F2a? I tried completed listings on ebay, but there don't seem to be any sold in recent history.

Seems to me that they were $100 to $150. I occassionally look for one, but have never ended up buying one.

The AI F2AS, not the F2A, uses the EE unit, and the proper one for an F2AS is the DS-3. The DS-1 and DS-2 are for the non-AI F2S (I have a DS-2 for my F2S). You then would need to take the batteries and have them rebuilt since original ones would be dead. From this link at the MIR website . . . F2 questions and answers What F2 can accept the EE aperture Control Attachment Unit ? DS-2.gif dp11sideillus.jpg dp2sideillus.jpg NOT all Nikon F2 models will accept the EE Aperture Control Unit Attachment. Only the non-AI bodies of Nikon F2S Photomic (w/DP-2), Nikon F2SB Photomic (w/DP-3) and AI Nikon F2AS Photomic (w/DP-12) body can used with the non-AI DS-1, DS-2 and the AI-spec DS-3). All metered prisms that accept the EE Units has a protruding side that will mate with the EE Unit section.
