    There are so many. I have the 105mm f2.5 and a 28 mm f2.8 I'm very happy with, but Nikon didn't make too many dogs. There are some real experts here who will chime in I'm sure.

    I love the FM3A. It was one of only two 35mm cameras I ever bought brand new. I bought mine just a short time before they announced that they'd cease production.

    Favorite lenses...28/2.8 and 105/2.5 AIS Nikkors. The 180/2.8 is right behind those two. Would be happy with only these three.

    I'm really liking my "new" 85/2 AI-S, but I really want an 85/1.4 and a 24/2.

    I keep the 45mm 2.8 P AIS on my FM3A most of the time. It's a great combination. The FM3A really is a wonderful camera.

    I have 3 FM3A bodies, one has an 85/1.4 AIS Nikkor permanently attached, another has a 35/2.0 AIS Nikkor permanently atrached, the third could have anything from a 24mm, to a 55mm macro, to a 50mm/1.2 to a 300mm.

    Since used Nikon glass has gotten very reasonable in price, I decided that if I was going to shoot 35mm (I prefer 8x10) it would likely be for speed, so I might as well purchase the fastest lenses I could get my hands on......

    wow.. this is my dream camera.. just recently i got a near mint Nikon Fm2n, and its a joy to use one.. i burned 5 test rolls already and i just couldnt stop.. but aperture priority just makes life easier out in the street where moments have to be captured at an instant and ables me to shoot faster.. since i love street photography, i wont stop til i find one in excellent condition...

    congratulations on your Fm3a!

    Got a 28mm/f3.5 for free and I am looking to add either the 105mm/f2.5 or the 85mm/f1.8.

    There are so many great Nikon lenses and very few dogs. Many refer to some of the Series E lenses as dogs, but some got pretty high marks, two of which were the 100mm Series E and the 75-150 Series E. Many of the early zooms were not all that great.

    I can highly recommend the 20mm 3.5 AI, the 28 2.8 AIS, 50mm 1.8 AIS (with a serial number starting with 3), the 55 3.5 Micro AI, the 135mm 2.8 AIS, and the 200mm f4 AI. In particular, you could get the 55, the 135, and the 28 3.5 kivis mentioned all for probably under $100 at KEH.
    Nikon FM2n (20/3.5, 28/3.5, 50/1.8, 55/3.5, 135/2.8), Pentax 645n (55/2.8), 3rd Eye Cameraworks 6x18 (on its way)

    Best Nikon body ever made and I have owned darn near all of them at one time or another. I bought my black one the year they came out, it is brassed and beautiful now. I love the -1 flash comp button, it works killer w/ TTL.

    However, it has been relegated to mountaineering only duty ever since I got Leica M's. But I will never sell it, we have seen too much together and will continue to do so..
