    -Get a nice F2, perhaps a F2A.

    -Send it to Sover Wong. Have the body and finder overhauled. (Yes $$$$$)

    -Live the dream!

    +1 on the Olympus OM1. I have a Leica M3 and an M6 ttl but often find myself grabbing a beat up Olympus OM1 instead.

    F2

The F3 is great, but more electronics and perhaps a little more fragile long term. The F2 is a tank that could literally work forever.
    The F2 without a doubt....

    I want to buy a strong reliable camera to take shoot with for many and many time.
    My choice is going to Nikon F2A (with DP-11) and not F2AS (with DP-12) cause the first uses needle and not leds.
    I want to shoot with a rellay mechanical jewel, can you give me any other suggestion?
    My budget is 300€ max, Every suggestion is welcome.
    Thanks in advance

    Nikons, as great as they are, are no jewels. Nor are Leicas.

    The F2 is solid, extremely versatile and very reliable. Its modular approach is a winner on all counts. And it doesn't require a battery for anything except the meter.

    I have used pretty much everything Nikon has ever made, but these two are what I have kept.

    Mechanical Jewel? Kind of like a pipe wrench is a mechanical jewel? I always considered those classic Nikons to be heavy-duty tools
