    F5 was partially dead, so no longer with me. My other latest new old camera is headed to Ralph. A Nikkormat FT3. He doesn't have one in his collection, and I need one like a hole in my head.

    I have tried (2 times) to get hold of the same camera but, each time, the lightmeter was dead and the general condition was rather sad. I could have them fixed but it was too costly. Having a lens f1,4, it would have been interesting to spend more money on them, though.

    Picked up an OM2 Spot Program off of ebay with a 35-10mm. I thought of getting one when they came out but decided that a Nikon FA was better for me (The other camera I was thinking of at the time was a Canon T90). 12 Nikon 35mm bodies later my mind still drifts back to the OM2 SP from time to time & I took the plunge after seeing one at a good price on ebay. I am running the first film through it now.

    Initial impressions are OK, but I made the right call for me in getting the FA originally. I miss the aperture in the viewfinder, find the 1/1000 top shutter speed a bit limiting & don't like the beeping. Will have to look at the manual on Butkus to see if it can be turned off. Other than that it handles OK.

    Have added a 50mm lens for it for under £10 & will look for a few more bits on ebay to make a small outfit around it.

    Minolta X-570. It was my first SLR and I regretted selling it years ago. I still had a 50mm f/1.4 and a 100mm f/2.5 so it was an easy decision.

    I used an OM-2S [the USA version] in the late '90s, and IIRC the only time the camera beeped was during battery check - could be the international version had a different feature implementation [???]. I liked the OM-2S for the most part: exposure accuracy of the TTL-OTF system delivered beautifully exposed slides in either AE or the spot metered manual mode [if only it could have overcome my shortcomings in composition], but the dedicated flash system, with its 1/60 X-sync limit [two stops slower than the FA] and related fill flash limitation is ultimately why I stopped shooting OM.

    Having just acquired an FA a few weeks ago and shot up a couple of rolls with it, I have to agree with your FA to OM-2S comparison. Nikon scored a major coup when they absorbed Copal.

    Thanks and regards,
    Vince

    My OM-2S beeps if over exposed. Gives me a signal to close down the aperture.

    It's a great feature since I've gone nearly blind and can't see the meter display.

    A 1952 (?) Dacora 1 folder (120 format) with a F/3.5 75mm Westar lens. The camera was given to yours truly by a colleague who found said camera while going through her late father's estate. She recalled her father having mentioned purchasing the camera in Korea when serving there during the war. I don't know if the camera is operational - it looks to be complete - but it will make for an interesting knick knack...
    Some Nikons (F6, F5x2, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    Finally got a Minolta X1 (known elsewhere as XM) and a Haiou 64 lens. The Haiou 64 is a 58mm f/2 lens which is supposedly a Planar design. I am curious to see how it will work.
