    Regardless of the shutter dial, I am very jealous! Congrats on the mint Nikon. Happy shooting.

    Thanks Trojan! It is amazing; I found two minicule traces of use; "as new" describes it very well. And it works...

    One question: are mint Nikons green, or do they just smell nice?
    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'll get used to it but having said that, the fm2 and those similar are a great operating camera for rolling the sspeed dial.

    I do love my F2A but the fm2n is more intuitive for me since it was my VERY first real camera.

    Yeah but still, with the FM2n, the shutterspeed dial could have been placed more to the front of the cameratop for easier twirling...

    As an Olympus owner, I like the location of the shutter speed dials on the Nikkormat bodies
