We made a large (approximately ) r'-band imaging survey of the central regions of the two nearby clusters of galaxies, Abell 1367 and Coma. The data, presented as a catalog, are used to construct the r'-band luminosity function (LF) of galaxies in these two clusters, by subtracting the Yasuda et al. ([CITE]) galaxy counts from our cluster counts. Our Coma luminosity function is consistent with previous determinations, i.e. providing a faint end slope , significantly steeper than the one we find for Abell 1367 (). The counts in Abell 1367 show a relative minimum at , followed by a steep increase faintward. The difference between the two clusters appears significant, given the consistency of the experimental conditions in the two clusters. Whereas for Coma we find a significant increase of the slope of the LF outwards, no such effect is found for Abell 1367.
