    Nikon FM3a, Should I get a second one?!

    Madness I know, but I simply love my current Nikon Fm3a and I'm thinking of getting a second unit for the sheer joy of having one incase my current own conks out (blesphemy I know!). Or maybe I could save it for future investment or as a possible future gift to my children in the future .

    What do you think?

    It would only be right to have a chrome and black version so it wouldn't be redundant . . .

    I used to have two FM2s - a black one for B&W and a silver one for colour.

    I decided I didn't need two, sold the black one, and then the silver one broke one week before my wife was due to give birth! Mad panic ensued as I tried to find a decent priced camera online in time for the big day.

    I get the feeling it's rather redundant to ask such questions in APUG

    The question that I have for you is what experience do you have shooting Nikon bodies and if you have experience with other Nikon's, why do you prefer the FM3a? I have shot many Nikon F's, F2's, Nikkormat's, FM2a, FE2, and currently like the Black FA very much. You would probably be able to pick up a nice used FA for a fraction of even a used FM3a.
