    Go pick up the $50 FX-3 Super 2000 in the FS Classified ads here. Then snap up some good Yashica or great Contax Zeiss glass with the remaining $450.

    Pick up a Nikkor 28/2.8 AI-S manual focus. I am very happy with mine.

    You may pick up OM-1 or OM-1n with a 28mm zuiko. Street photography may not need metering for every single shot.

    Just set the meter for one shot and the rest is just focus and shoot. If you are little concerned about the correct exposure than OM-2 or OM-2n.

    +1 for the view finder in OM-1(n) so always recommended.

    A winder/motor drive will make you happy, but it may not be compact.

    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    Sorry, Les, but your police line-up shot is a bit misleading. Apart from the apparently slight weight difference, the FG really is a tiny camera compared to the FM/FE variants and the F3.

    You can get a top-shape Pentax ME Super or Super Program with a 28 and 50 for less than $200, CLA'd (via Eric). Small, light, exceptional, especially the metering. With the extra $$ you save think of all the film and processing you can afford. These are very unassuming cameras that are classic SLR styles. The ME Super with the 28/3.5 is actually smaller than my Yashica Electro GSN.;; it's pocketable. Also quite rugged and very good VF's.

    IMHO, having tried all brands of cameras, all glass is good. A few duds, a few wowzers, but all brands made very good glass.

    Yes, there's a noticeable difference between the F3 and the FG...especially the weight. I've got a few Nikon bodies, but I'm about ten seconds from picking up an FG just to have one. I think it'd be a great lightweight body to carry, and it would give me interchangeable lenses...something I'm lacking in my QL 17 and Rollei 35. I'd love to have a Leica CL, but funds won't let me afford the glass for it...and I'm also saving for large format equipment, which I also need to buy cheaply.

    Anyway, yeah, the FG is a tiny little thing. Tiny is good when you're walking.

    Misleading as in it would benefit me to adjust camera angles in favor of one over the other for some unknown reason? Just how tiny did you think the FG is? The FG just feels tiny due to the disparity in weight particularly compared to an F3. Of course you can download the manuals so you can verify the absolute dimensions listed below.
    1. FG - 136 X 87.5 X 54
    2. FM - 142 X 89.5 X 60.5
    3. FM3A - 142 X 90 X 58
    4. FE - 142 X 89.5 X 57.5
    5. FA - 142.5 X 92 X 64.5
    6. OM-1 - 136 X 83 X 50
    7. MX - 135.5 X 82.5 X 49.5


    Perhaps a more "technical" representation would be better since I do have them available and they are all so photogenic . . .

    If it's of any use to you, Laroy, I've got a Sony MZ-R70 minidisk recorder you're welcome to have and I could toss in a couple of used disks. I don't use them anymore. If you'd like them, just PM me with your address and I'll post 'em off.
