    I have owned F2AS, F3HP, FE, FM, EM, FA as far as the manual focus cameras are concerned. My favorite is the F3HP although it was not love at first sight. It just grew on me. I do like the F2AS a lot but I like the F3HP more.

    Ditto, and add the convenience of the hinged back door. Might as well make it one of the later auto indexing models while we are at it.

    But nothing, and I mean NOTHING, feels as good to shoot to me as the F. I just chose the F2 for a few reasons of practicality. In the end, it is about how well a camera provides you with what you need in order to do what you want to do, not some romantic feeling about how great it "feels" to shoot it. By choosing the F2, I give up the utmost in "feel" and "style" that I get with the F in order to be able to change my film more quickly and use a faster shutter speed. The F2 has a few important added features over the F, but without going so far as to make it seem like an overkill electronic wonder camera, like the F3.

    It is also really hard for me not to name the early Canon F-1. Great, great cameras. Everything I need, and nothing I don't. But maintenance and repair have proven to be hell for me with these cameras.

    I've owned or used the Nikkormat FTN, F2A, F3HP, FM, FM2n, EM, and N2000. My favorite is the F2A - I like the 100% viewfinder, the meter, the ability to take non-AI and AI/S lenses, and the way the thing was built.

    Probably my FA as back in 1986 that got me started with Nikon, although I could happily toss a coin between that & the F3. Rather like F3's. Have two of them. After that it would be the FM2. Of my MF Nikon's these see the most use. Bringing up the rear would be the FE2 & then the F. The F is a joy to shoot but it sees the least use of the bunch.

    i preferred my FM2n to my FE2, only because I got used to the LED meter indicator on the FM2.

    However, I'm finding I'm still getting used to meter readings in the FM2. It tends to overexpose more than I'd like. But, as with any tool, you learn how to compensate for oddities.

    But it'd be nice to have something that worked perfectly without any adjustment...a la my old Olympus OM4T.
