From April 16 to December 03, 2023, I show parts of my Nikon F collection in the Hessenpark, Germany (www.hessenpark.de).
For the second and significantly expanded edition of the Nikon F Trilogy all chapters have been revised – if necessary. I have added new collector parts as well as new types which were not included in the edition of 2003. All tables were revised and numerous types were added. Many pictures (about 1,000 new pictures) expand the three books especially many pictures over half a page. Newly added are many reproductions of covers of brochures, instruction manuals and repair manuals. The 2021 edition, in English language, has 900 color pages with 1,850 pictures and a format of 21x30cm.

Almost 140 reproductions of the cover, or the content of brochures, instructions, and repair manuals, are included.

Uli Kochs Neuauflage der Nikon F Trilogie ist eine zeitgemäße Überarbeitung des besten Standardwerks zu diesem Thema. Die Informationen sind nach aktuellem Wissen erweitert und die zahlreichen farbigen Abbildungen bester Qualität sind eine große Bereicherung. Mir hat besonders das deutlich ausführlichere Nikkor Kapitel gefallen, das ganz neue Zahlen bietet und nun sogar mit der Betrachtung anderer Kameramodelle über die Nikkor F hinausreicht
Uli, the books arrived today safe and sound. Thank you again for the wonderful collection. You are very talented.
I am impressed with the wonderful book. From now on, I will make it a daily routine to read your book every day. I pay tribute to your great work!!

Another great source of inspiration from that Nikon specialist ... ULI !!! I was already fan of Nikon Microscopes , now ... i want them all. Keep the good job !
Thanks very much for the book. It’s a masterpiece! Nikon made a superb job of designing those beautiful instruments and you have done a similar excellent job of recording them. Well done!
Another stunning publication by Uli Koch! His latest book, "Nikon Microscopes - The First 50 Years" encompasses Uli's superb knowledge on this subject, and is written in his usual entertaining manner. His pictures are of the highest quality!
Uli has, once again, prepared a magnificent treatise on Nippon Kogaku, and the company’s evolution of its optical prowess. In Microscopes, The First 50 Years, he delivers the same intellectual depth and production value in this 388 page book as he has with his previous publications. His superb photographs illustrate in detail the evolution of Nikon’s contribution to unveiling what the eye cannot see.
Uli-san’s book sheds light into those “black” Nikon microscopes of that era. Who thought it would be so difficult just to classify them! I am sure the book will become the basis for Nikon microscope enthusiasts abroad.. It’s a win-win for all enthusiasts, not only collectors.
Wow what a superb book! I never thought I would see so much detailed information about the Nikon microscopes. I am sure that I speak for other NHS members when I heartily thank you for undertaking the research and sharing the results with us.
This book is more familiar with Nikon than any of the current Nikon employees. In particular, the 16-page description of Multiphot was a masterpiece.
