What your first 35mm camera should be: rugged, reliable, easy to use, and a Nikon.
The FE needs no introduction, so if you need one I recommend the eloquent Photography in Malaysia website: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography...s/fe/index.htm
The FE was one of the few Nikons to allow both AI and non-AI lenses (the latter in stop-down metering mode).
I've used this body as a backup body, but lately I haven't been using it much since I'm not doing contract work anymore.
