    Would you buy an F4 if you only use MF lenses?

    *Sigh* just not my luck of the draw with KEH lately, don't know what's going on. First my 105 and now the FM2n.

    Seems to work just fine, but there's a nice fat dent in the prism which wasn't described in the listing. I guess as long as it works...

    Boy I sure got spoiled by the film advance on the F3 though, the FM2 is nowhere near as smooth. BTW mine came with the Titanium shutter blades, anything to worry about?

    Just my thinking dont take it personal.
    Comparing two quite different, older and discontinued, cameras, (one auto-focus and the top of the line professional, while the other manual-focus and fully-manual in operations), and with quite different feel, weight and features is nothing like discussing one DSLR to the immediate next generation one with minor updates.

    The only camera I have sold and regretted to this day. When money is available I will replace it.

    Which one? The F4?

    I'd still like to try one out someday to see how it handles, but I went out to do some shooting with the FM2 today and it handled just fine.

    Depends on whether you think that's a good thing or a bad thing . . .

    Perhaps you didn't notice the forum we are in . . .

    Just as an update, KEH came through and got me set up with another FM2n, a few years older than the previous one, and still with a couple dings here and there, but overall it works just fine. It handles nicely along with my F3 though it is a tad small in my big mitts. So far so good though!

    I want one those for slide copying. I bought a step-up ring to use an El-Nikkor for that purpose, only to discover the filter threads on the lens were completely f***ed. I've had that El for years but never thought to look at the front thread!

    Rumor has it the 55/2.8 is extremely sharp all the way out to infinity, would you concur?
