I loved my FG, and I used it for years until I got an FM. I especially like the way the shutter speed dial is so easy to adjust without taking your eye away from the finder. The only things the FG was missing were auto-exposure lock, a PC flash connection, and a DOF preview lever (minor quibbles). But my FG definitely developed a focus problem after some time; this may have been the result of a couple minor bumps during rock-climbing, hiking, and bouldering.
