    Still stuck with the 50mm lens on my N2000 so haven't used it at all, even Tamron lenses with Nikon adapter are more expensive than say Canon FD.

    I have the N2000, and it has many features that are convenient, and a metering system that seems quite accurate. The only downsides I see are the lack of a conventional shutter release socket and the fact that, at least on my example, the motorized shutter advance is rather noisy.

    They are great cameras. I have worn out two of them.
    Then they're not that great, I would suggest.

    Well if you can pick up the bodies for about £15....who cares.

    the F-301 was my first 35mm camera. It is good enough if you don't need MLU and DOF preview. The fixed standart screen can be an issue, too.

    But on the other hand, the bodies are very cheap. They are not very heavy and the batteries last "forever"... winding is just for transport, for respooling you have to use a crank. Loaded with lithium batteries, it is the perfect backup body for Nikon glass!

    The N2000 is a durable workhorse with good ergonomics. A fast handling camera that has been my go-to street camera in Nikon mount. My favorite Nikon before I got the N80.

    Hope you're still enjoying the N2020 you bought from me! Glad to see it's getting used!

    I used one and thought, perfect for a first time nikon body (student, etc), last week I pulled it out and the 2nd shutter was dead. I had fun disassembling it and saving the bits for parts.

    I wore out one in 10 yrs of shooting 100 rolls/yr, but it was used when I got it, and still worked w/the AA pack. My favorite meter readout of all Nikon f ilm cameras.
