Thank you so much for your post. That's what I want to read in this thread... Finally I bought a Nikon F2A... My choice was between F2A and F2AS and I decide for F2A cause the meter is with a arrow and not with Led... Just for the sensation to use as less electronic is possible... I read lot of posts saying this is a robust camera, and when I shoot with that I understand what this mean... Usually I use a Contax RTSII and I think that now I have two different example of what cameras were in the past. Thanks to all again....
