    even if its a collectors item.. i would still use it.. i never believed at those money making schemes.. if its a camera, i will use it.. but i wont be paying that much money for the same kind that is worth a fraction of that.. if i ever get a nikon SP2005 at a reasonable and affordable price.. i will not have second thoughts of using it.. im not a collector.. im a photographer..

    I've got a black paint Leica M6 'Year of the Dragon' I bought for a decent price for a black paint M6...I use it. It was 'as new' when I bought it, it's just 'Minty' now.

    Prices for FM2n recently in Australia have seen good cla'd ones exceed $450. They would have stopped at $250 a year ago.

    Have a look here for some others. [presumably someone would pay silly money for one, or all of them]

    I remember seeing the "Year of The Dragon" special edition Nikons in stock at the big houses in New York well into 2002. IIRC, the new FM3a had already been announced by the time the special FM2N went on sale. I think most people saw the "special edition" FM2N as a cheap marketing ploy by Nikon to try to move the remainder of the FM2Ns.

    Let's hope those proud collectors one day bravely remove the baseplate and find a "Made in China" mark inside!
    What proof is there this camera isn't a fake from the Land of Fakes?

    I believe that this was actually Robin Williams' line.
