I've owned FE2, FM2 and F80 Nikons. Sold them all when I went Contax SLR years ago. Bought in again when I saw a great FM2 for $150 and then got me some older Q, M and P Nikkor glass which I love for B&W. The F3 was my fantasy camera back when I was 20 yrs old and the camera new was like $2k. So when I found a brassy but perfectly functioning one offered on APUG a few months ago I grabbed it. Gorgeous camera, a real tank, I love it. $200 is not bad.
