    It turns out that I seem to have a few more cameras than I can use at once (I'm not sure how that happened!). This FM body, s/n 225xxxx is definitely a user, it has it's share of blemishes - nothing major though, it is a good camera and makes good pictures. Meter and speeds are good, Advance is smooth, counter, self timer all work well. The only mechanical issue is the shutter lock ring doesn't work, but in the many years I have had this camera I never used that function. And, the ring around the eyepiece is a little funky. The seals and mirror pad were replaced in 2007, so there is no issue with foam.

    The 50mm f1.8 AI lens super sharp, in outstanding condition with no issues.

    Extras include a Hoya 1B filter and a Cokin creative filter holder with a 52mm mount.

    I'd like to get $85 for it, plus priority mail insured shipping and the Paypal 2.9%. Or, I can meet you in the Boston area or on Cape Cod for a pick up. Shipping in the U.S. only.
    Send me a PM if interested

    Maybe you could line up to buyers, one for lens, one for body. I would be interested in the body.

    Guys (and gals), it's like getting the lens for free. The lens alone is worth most of that price based on KEH and ebay prices.

    I just bought the same outfit (FM, 50/1.8) for about the same price and thought I got a great deal.

    Just thought I'd mention, generally I'm not near a computer during the day so it might take me a little while to respond to a PM. I can also be reached through my website: http://www.jimrohrerphotography.com
