    Nikon FE2 vs Olympus OM-4T(i)

    Considering 2 of the high points in aperture preferred cameras. Both classics. Which would you choose and why? Don't worry about glass, this camera will hitch it's wagon to a 50mm lens only.

    I think that camera design peaked with the arrival of the OM4Ti. The spot metering capable of taking up to 8 readings before you shoot was always a + for me.

    Now I'd go for the Olympus because of size, weight and viewfinder, despite my liking aspects of the Nikon's ergonomics better.

    In the past I would have chosen (actually, did!) the Nikon for its hammer abilities, but I now realize that I rarely need a hammer to take pictures with....

    The OM4T has spot metering accurate as my Sekonic, OTF flash at all speeds with an Olympus F280 and exposure info display has a light available in dark conditions.

    Not sure I follow. The FE2 uses a needle for shutter speed in the viewfinder but it is hard to see in the dark. How does it compare to the OM-4T?

    Even better if you find a good OM-2sp, which is full-time spot under manual mode.

    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    Also the Nikon FM/FE series bodies have always impressed for its sturdiness. How does the OM series compare?

    Is it bright enough to read in the dark (unlike the Nikon's)?
