    Ok, so options continue to grow. I guess at this point maybe considering an FA and a 35mm F/2 and just sticking with that--seeing as though that's my ideal lens and I really prefer the older build in my hands. I just got offered a gorgeous nickel plated Zone Vi 4x5 with two brand new Schneider lenses for a good price, so Nikon stuff might not be top priority at the moment!

    F2 and never ask these questions again (you'll be just growing your F2 stable for the rest of your life )

    be patient and wait for the 35/2 O.C and 85/1.8 H.C; buying anything else now will just extend the wait before you get these two

    ps. of the dozens of Nikons I have owned the two FAs and the F3 were the only ones that failed on the job; anecdotal, I know, but hey, life's a joke anyway, no?

    If you need the featureset of the FA then there is no manual focus Nikon alternative. Besides, it really is a fine shooter!
