Well thats not my experience!Originally Posted by gchpaco
I have owned FM, FM2 and FM2n in the past and currently own an FM3a. My friend has two FE2's. The FM3a is certainly the noisiest of all of them.
However, as has been said, it pales into insignificance if you are using the MD12.
I'm certainly not trying to disuade you (Nicole) from an FM3a though, its a great camera.
