    Yeah, I guess so. I have fairly large hands and do not mind some additional weight vs. the F2, which I consider the "Leica" of the Nikon line. After using FM2, FE2, N70, F80, and a couple of F3 through many years I was not prepared but just how wonderful I found the F2 when I bought one on a whim a couple of months ago. The workmanship of all mechanical body, the shutter sound/feel, the whole she-bang, has pleased me to no end and unlike any other camera has in many years short of my Leica MP in over 32 years of using cameras. Thus my suggestion...

    F2's are wonderful, but the meter less F is my M3.

    Canon FD-mount systems are pretty good value if you ask me..
    My AE1 looks a state but works perfectly, so it was cheap, and FD lenses are some of the cheapest there are.

    I've a FE, F3, F4 and F5, however, F3 is the one I use most.

    I know I'm in the minority here, but I do not particularly like my F3HP. I find the light meter indicator very difficult to see and use. I have to shift my focus from the scene directly to the indicator in order to read it. Very annoying.

    That's an urban legend.
