    In praise of Nikon FM/FE/1/2/3

    +100 on this whole thread. Got my start with an FE2. Sold (and now regret selling) an FM3a. Now have two other FE2s and an FM2. How many more do I need to buy before its a stockpile?

    Yes ,FM and FE are good cameras. But I prefer my ugly nikkormat and fancy F2. The life is sometimes easier with mirror lock up, distorsion free viewfinder(100% on F2). And shutter on F2 cause almost no vibration . And you can
    use a nikkormat as hammer. It does not matter,every camera is good camera in proper hands.

    Unfortunately I dropped my FE2. I need to find another one. But right now I am selling off my stuff.

    Things I dont like: the viewfinder eyepeice is round and it cuts off the corners. The exposure compensation is hard to use.
    The Nikon FG has a nice square viewfinder and the exposure compensation is 100 times easier to use. But the shutter sounds like an android having a hernia.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    The self timer on the FM, FE and FE-2, also activates the mirror lock-up.

    The FE and the more manual Nikkormat FT3 are my favorite 35mm SLRs. Neither has failed me once in the decades I've had them.
