    Whilst I also run F3HP bodies plus an FE2, I have often thought if a late model FM2 happened along, I would snap it up.

    FM2 is a nice camera, and I particularly like the light meter, but I am even more fond of the F2…

    Get more lenses first.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    If you love it so much, why don't you marry it?

    Seriously speaking, if you are happy with the camera, I'd just get a duplicate camera. Makes things very easy. I love my pair of F-1s and my pair of FTb-QLs. Using either pair is always a bit easier than using one of each; nothing to remember to do differently when going from one to the other.

    Good morning, Mike;

    You did say "fully manual." I agree with Uhner; the Nikon F2.

    The variations you will find are mainly in the metering on top of the body. You can change the metering, or just use a waist level, magnifier, or pentaprism finder with the body. It is the last hand assembled Nikon 35 mm camera. It does not require a battery (you did say "fully manual"). They can be repaired. I like mine, although I do use my Minoltas more often. Something about the Nikkor lenses focusing "backwards" for me.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    The Nikon F2 is a great choice.... I think I have 6..... some have bad shutters but I really like the camera.... what makes them all different is the meter you put on them..... I have mostly non-AI lenses so I really like my F2S.

    Mike, it depends on what you might be shooting and under what conditions. for myself, my F3 wasn't cutting it in the cold. I need knobs (shutter dial) so I could it with cold weather gloves on. I also needed something that was weather resistant. To my point, it depends on you usage. I found the f4s did meet my needs, and is a great manual camera. Batteries last fairly well in the cold as well. I really liked the F3 and HP version is even better. The film advance lever is silky smooth. - Sean
