    That's probably it...

    Actually, they're an amazing concept. The combination of compact body, ruggedness and features is unparallelled.

    Yeah since Nikon introduced the FM first at that time I fully believed FM is short for Nikon F Mini (or Miniature) as they did try to make it smaller.
    But then when they came out with the FE then may be FM stands for F Mechanical as the FE is F Electronic and then came the FA then I thought FM is F Manual vs the FA is F Automatic.
    Now I don't think I know what they meant.

    FE = electronic shutter, FM = mechanical shutter, what I remember from when the cameras were introduced. The FM is in no way a miniature F.
