    My main camera is the F2 Photomic.

    Although I got a Canon F1 from my Grandfather recently with a MUCH larger assortment of lenses and accessories, I still prefer the feel and use of the Nikon for some reason.

    The F with plain prism has a similar feel and balance.

    I have a black F2 Photomic and a chrome F2 with a meterless prism. One or the other get used at least weekly.

    I do, two with DP-1 meter heads (one black, the other chrome) and a black F2S.

    I haven't used one since 1984 when someone stole my F2AS. I would probably still use it often today if I still have it.

    The F2 when coupled with the motor drive is an impressive looking machine. I've never owned or used the motor drive, and I have a F4s so I likely don't need another camera with a motor drive, but one day I'll get one anyway.

    Any preferences for a motor drive? MD-1, MD-2 ??

    I would say get the MD-2. I was still my dream to have the F2 with the MD-2/MB-1 combo. As far as real performance the MD-2 isn't as great as the MD-4 for the F3.

    In there somewhere. It's quite small. You don't have to worry about it until sometime after the year 2600. I'm sure Sover Wong will have replacements.
    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.

    The MD-2 has a plastic gear that loves to self-destruct. Get an MD-1 or consult Sover Wong for an easy fix for the MD-2. I have an MD-1; it's damned heavy but I can't imagine life without it, mostly because I like having a hand grip (I don't use a camera strap; my camera needs to be in my hand, ready to go, or else it doesn't get used).

    If you can get a battery pack with the AA holders, lithium batteries work great. They make the camera top-heavy though.
