I was lucky enough to find a brand-new FM3a a couple of years after they were discontinued. In fact, I'm an idiot! I remember standing in B&H and holding one, for all of $650 or thereabouts and letting it go, but I digress...

The FM3a is a terrific little camera. Its solid. Doesn't 'need' any batteries (except to work the built-in meter). Its reliable, well built and basically bullet-proof.

If you like the feel of 'tradition' in your hands as you deploy that mechanical shutter, the FM3a will find a cozy spot in your photo arsenal
