Nikkormat FT2 in black! Attached is a 28mm 3.5 lens.
The Nikomat FT2 (in Japan) or Nikkormat FT2 (elsewhere) is the last of the pre-AI mechanical-shutter Nikomat/Nikkormat bodies, sold 1975–1977. Essentially it is an FTN with some added features.
Aperture indexing is semi-automatic on the FT2. When attaching a lens it must be set at F/5.6 so the camera’s meter coupling pin will be aligned with the lens’s meter coupling prong (rabbit ears) above F/5.6 then you must rack the aperture ring all the way back and forth so the camera will know the maximum aperture of the lens.
