    So what's wrong with a Nikon N2000 / F301?

    Well I don't know why but have just bought it off ebay, and I've only got a 50mm Nikkor lens........but loads of lenses with other cameras......LOL

    It's a splendid camera, and I have three of them Sort of like an FG (very different in design) but with built-in winder. Very good metering and has never let me down. I also have the AF version called the N2020. Inexpensive cameras that usually ride in a foam chest in my car trunk.

    Well it would be an upgrade from my EM....I think I have the collector's bug from P&S to medium format.

    Nikon N2000

    I have two N2020 bodies. These were the next model up from the N2000 and Nikon's first mass produced 35mm AF SLR. I don't use the N2020s for AF. They make nice manual focus cameras. One advantage they have over the N2000 is that the focusing screens can be changed. I have read that very long lenses can strain the lens mounts of the N2000 and N2020 bodies but my longest Nikkor is 200mm and all of my 200mm Nikkors are f/4 models. The one feature I miss on the N2020 is the ability to flip up the AI tab and use pre-AI lenses. This is the same reason I sometimes prefer an FE to an FE2.

    I have an N2020 which rides in an old 6-pack can cooler in my car. It has the Nikon 35-70mm zoom lens and I'm astounded by how close the lens focuses. It's a very nice camera and lens and I love that it takes ordinary AAA batteries, too!

    This is clearly a positive point
