    Another, perhaps unacceptable, option is to update to a 8008s/801s or N90s/F90x--both work well as MF bodies with MF lenses. Fact remains that the FE is getting to be an elderly camera. I have 3 in nice to mint shape but wouldn't get one now as starter camera given the likelihood of age-related issues and the cost/scarcity of competent repair.

    Indeed. Both my F3 and FE recently received offers to join AARP.

    I look at my two F3HP and then I look in the mirror. I am not sure if they ever had a CLA, while I do have those at least occasionally. Nevertheless, I realize that if someone in this "symbiosis" should be worried, it's the cameras.

    You could do what I did.....My Black FE had a broken manual advance so I bought a AS-IS $12 FE Black camera
    for the part to fix it !!! KEH sent me the most Mint looking FE I have Ever Seen!!! Even smelt New.

    Only thing was it needed new foam.... easy fix

    The camera works like new, Manual advance is nice and smooth meter works, Auto works nothing wrong with it.

    I bought a EX grade F3HP as well.....nice but not as Exciting as a Mint $12 Black FE
