    Got a FG for the quicki handling at family get togethers, loved it with the 50/1.8E, carried it in a jacket pocket or small leather bag on the handlebars of my motorcycle Got a 2nd in a group of "broken" cameras for $5, turned out to be a dead battery, recently gave away one and still use one.

    A little Christmas quiz:
    The FG has the same shutter speeds range as the EM or the FG-20, but it has a peculiar shutter sound.
    What is it, what makes it and why?

    It's a beast, a small and light beast. Reminds me of the Canon Rebel I used to shoot with, the FG was my 35mm learner

    I don't own an FG, but I dbought the same lens recently for a song and was quite impressed with it's image quality;worth every penny.

    i bought one from keh for $28. what a bargin. put the ultra light weight plastic 50mm 1.8d on it and you have the lightest set up i could think of. and the results are amazing. one of the best bargains around. but the shutter sound takes some getting used to, as did the FA
