    I had an FM3a, purchased new. Selling it ranks up there with some of the worst decisions I've ever made. I still miss that camera!

    Hi,
    Just to be sure: can anyone confirm that the FM3A has everything that FM2 and FE2 had in their time. In other words is FM2 + FE2 = FM3A ?

    Yes, except of course, 1 body weighs half as much as two. But two bodies provides the ability to use different kinds of film simultaneously, and also offers backup.

    I think I'm right in saying that the viewfinder metering display is the same or similar to FE2. This would be a deal-breaker for me as I often shoot in low light or against dark backgrounds and I find the needle display on my FE much harder to see than the +/o/- LEDs on my FM and FM2N.
