    With respect to the FM3a screens, the information about exposure compensation couldn't be farther from the truth. I've owned a couple FM2's (and an FE2) that I installed the K3 screen from an FM3a into. The meter did not change its reading after changing the screens. I currently have the stock K2 screen in my FM2n, but I do plan to install a K3 into it when I have some more cash.

    Anyway, welcome back to the F3 and FE2 world. If you're in need of a flash that'll work with both, but the AS-17 adapter seems hard to come by or too expensive, check out the SB-16... Just make sure you have both modules for it. It's a bit like a more versatile and TTL compatible Vivitar 285HV. The 300f4.5 is a pretty nice lens, even in the non-ED/EDIF version. Owned a couple of the older chrome barrel Nikkor-H versions. The only thing I didn't care for was the close focusing ability and the weight. Found that the 300f4.5 EDIF was quite a bit lighter, and focused closer. With a couple extension tubes, that lens actually became a fairly decent macro lens.

    I appreciate the regard and input. John: it is, indeed, nice to be back in the world of Nikon and Nikkor. I have been using both F3s, and just put some 400NC in my FE2. I wonder how the Nikkor glass will compare to my OM lenses. The OM lenses take some very fine photos, but I am not that impressed with my OM2n body. There is nothing terribly wrong or awful about it, but there are three things I do not like about it:

    1. The body is smallish.
    2. The connection between the Winder 2 and body is weak (I can feel play with relatively light pressing against the body).
    3. The tripod mount on the Winder 2 is too shallow. It does not screw tightly to a plate. It is quite loose.

    Granted, the Zuiko lenses for the Olympus OM line are generally considered to be very fine optics. I do not think that you'll be disappointed with the Nikkor optics.
