    A "good condition" user F3 goes for $200-$225, a really nice one (cosmetically) for $300. They also use auto lenses. They're built like tanks. What exactly is wrong with an auto flash like the Vivitar 283?
    Which is part of my reasoning for the F4 over the F3.

    The F4 isn't any more money and can be cheaper. Better metering. Uses common AA batteries. The F3 used button batteries? The F4 adds a modern still supported flash attachment. TTL flash.

    I have to cast a vote for the FE2. Great camera, simple to use, rugged. With the SB16B you get TTL auto flash, which is very accurate, in my experience.

    Maybe one should add...... And newer, up to at least the SB28 (I would expect youll get TTL with the SB800 too).
    The FE2 is a great little camera but I like the diode in the FM range better than the needle in the FE's.

    I didn't mean to restrict the flash choices to the SB16; indeed, my SB800 does work in TTL with my FE2. Should have said that.

    And I like the match needle meter better than the diodes. It's more... ANALOG!!

    Well, having rented an FM2n for the weekend, I'm now biting the bullet. See the classifieds for my massive M42 sale!
    Using film since before it was hip.
