    This is a very lightly used FM10. It was purchased new by me as a stop-gap replacement for a stolen FM2n. I have since replaced the FM2n and bought several other similar cameras. It's time to start unloading some.

    This Kit comes with the camera body with very little normal wear. A few small dings in the plastic prism housing if you look close, some very minor wear to the leatherette on the grip. The leatherette is still firmly attached. All mechanisms are fully functional. Serial #2353714


    FEATURES (from Adorama website)

    * 35-70mm f/3.5-4.8 Zoom Nikkor Lens (included) - Provides a flexible and creative range for general photography
    * Shutter Speeds Up to 1/2000 second
    * For very long exposures, the B setting lets you capture beautiful night scenes, cityscapes with vibrant lighting, and long time exposures for creative exciting photography.
    * Depth-of-field Preview
    * Double Exposures
    * Daylight, Night-time and Indoors - Built-in ISO hot shoe will accept just about any Nikon Speedlight
    * Center-Weighted Meter
    * Manual Advance and Rewind


    Also includes:

    * 35-70, 3.5-4.8 kit lens in like-new condition with front lens cap.
    * Fitted Nikon case
    * Printed manual
    * Partially used batteries (these things last for years)

    Missing from kit:

    Camera Strap



    This kit is selling new on Amazon and Adorama for $299.95. Will sell this slightly used kit for $125 plus $10 shipping to US. Great starter camera for a student.

    OK,

    Will lower the price to $100 plus $10 shipping. I need to get some new filters within the next couple of weeks, and this will be the funding source, or at least part of it.

    This is a pretty great deal on a very lightly used, one-owner camera.

    I had one of these and took it all over Asia with no problems. It's a nice camera. I gave it to my son who used it for a couple of years before becoming enamored with pixels. This thread reminds me I'll have to get it back.

    Sorry, have to pass. If I end up selling to KEH, they appear to only want it as a kit, including lens and case.

    You probably would get more if you sold the body and lens separately. Just a thought, maybe more of a PITA. Good Luck.

    Well, I guess it wouldn't hurt to listen to any offers. Will be withdrawing this listing on Sun as I will be out of town for three weeks shortly after that.

    If I go that route, I'll be giving the person above first crack at the case if they are still interested.

    Yup, I want the case, but if you get an offer and they want the case they can have it, it isn't worth you lousing a sale over.

    You seem to be the only one in the world to admit owning one of these. : ) If it wasn't for the missing strap.......

    It's actually a pretty good camera. If it doesn't sell by Sunday, I'll either keep it or offer it on ebay. Would make a great starter camera for someone who wants to take a shot at film, or for those folks who have discussed the college courses that required a fully manual, film camera - perfect fit.

    Relatively new, still in production, and about 1/3 the price that you can get it from Amazon.
