    I found a FM in reasonably good shape on that auction site.

    Thanks for the input.

    FWIW, the /2's don't have the flip up meter coupling.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    The link completes now, but it just sends me binary junk. I think their web site is set to compress the stream and my browser(s) can't read it........

    That's what happens to me at work because we use a version of IE from 3 versions back (some security issue thing). Works with every other browser for me from home (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and on my iPhone and iPad. Maybe try Firefox? (I'm assuming you're using IE). The site is well worth the effort. You will be blown away on the info for Nikon SLRs, particularly older stuff.

    Works fine for me.
    XP SP3, latest Firefox.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    You could try a good old banger F, usually these go for $20 upwards at Perth photoswapmeetings - For this price it does not matter if you find it crude

    I got a rough one for $20 and left the body behind as all I wanted was the good condition pretty little non-metering prism head - I now wish I had kept the crappy body and re-covered the peeling leather with deep red or green pigskin and replaced the mirror bouncy rubber seal at the top - Next time!

    I think the original F was the epitome of Nikon SLR design and I love all three of mine, especially the black one with the big sports finder with the huge exit pupil, but that was more than $20, the prism alone was over $60
