    Hi guys,

    Just got back from a trip to Southern CO with a girl I'm interested in and I think I thoroughly impressed her with my M7II :tongue:

    But anyhow, she's shooting a Nikon D80 and spent some good money on glass so it'd be body only. She mentioned she'd like to try film since she never has, so I figured I might as well try to track down a body.

    Something under $50 maybe or so? I was thinking N90s or something less expensive. Some sort of AF body to get her feet wet before I turn her onto my C330 or other equipment.

    Help me convert another!

    I got my N90s from KEH for $29 about a year ago. Was BGN rated but looks and works like showroom. Haven't checked their prices recently. It would be a very nice camera for her.

    How about an N60 w/lens for $40+ shipping?

    The N8008s/F801s is another nice one. With any 35mm she's gonna flip when she experiences a real viewfinder!

    How about a N65 body which looks good, but may or may not work (I'm too lazy to get batteries). I can send it for the price of shipping, and if it works you can send me a few rolls of film. If it doesn't work, well, you're out shipping.

    I'll take ya up on the N65 (what batteries does it take?). I'll send a PM shortly. Tjaded, which lens are you talking about? Might not be bad for me to have an SLR as well.

    Thanks guys!
