Are you thinking of the FG? FM2's are one of the most durable cameras ever built. Gawd knows mine has been through hell and back, still accurate, the one camera I would never hesitate to take ANYWHERE if I really needed the picture. In 25 years it has only had two lens mounted on it, a 105 2.5 and a 35 2.0.

Wrong forum I know.

Other datum points, my Fuji 150 6.3 I have had slightly longeer than the Nikon, no degradation with either optical nor mechanical (Seiko) mechanisms.

I would not hesitate to buy a Schneideritis lens if the price was right and I needed it.
