    The only easily found SLRs with spot that I know of are OMs. Any nikon with something close to spot metering is not going to fall under the sub-100 or "film using" range. I'd suggest a cheap nikkormat or one of the plastic zooming ones, then get a spot-lightmeter when you get the money. That way if you want to upgrade cameras you'll still have spot metering capability, regardless of choice.

    The F-100 provides a wide range of options and a wide range of automation from fully manual to fully automatic. I believe that it would cost less than the heavier F4 and F5. Whether you can get one in Europe for under 100 Euros, i do not know.

    Agree but I would add one more to the list the N90s/F90x.

    I like the N-80 much better for controls, I have owned N-90s but decided to stick with the N-80, did add the battery pack for better feel and AA batteries. And for basic manual the FM-10, mine is 13 years old, has had lots of film ran through it. And being unpopular can be found rather cheap. All cameras mentioned here are good cameras, they all have good and bad points.

    There are many Nikon with spotmeter that are available for less than $100 euro (less than $100 USD even) like the F90, F80 etc.. It's the Oly that is hard to have for less than 100 euror. May be the OM2s but both the OM-3 or OM-4 would be at least 3 times the 100.

    At this point I should plug the Leicaflex SL: Spot (or at least semi-spot - definitely narower than Nikon's center weighting, though not quite as narrow as a "real" handheld spot meter) metering, probably the best manual focussing there is and somewhat good lenses

    In Europe, an SL body often goes for €150-199

    Thanks everyone for the replies - I'll have to think about it. But I'll probably go for an AF body, maybe the N90s.

    Which Nikon SLR should I get ? It Depends AF or MF, see Below V.

    It was an excellent Modern AF camera.
    The Nikon F100 camera is the best compromise between value & features,

    of all Nikon cameras. See web-site listed below V.

    Just check & be sure that the back door controls work. They had a recall due to

    door warpage leading to control failure.

    For Manual Focus:

    Nikon F3 w MD4 ! Even a Nikon F4 w MB 21, when focused Manually is a great camera.

    Or, failing that:

    F2,A,AS etc., w an MD2 / MB1

    FE2, FM2-2, w an MD12.

    Reading this thread one would almost be led to believe that the perfect Nikon does not exist.

    I picked up an OM4 from the APUG classifieds last week for USD$100
