Rather than ID’ing what I feel to be essential features I’ll point you toward some bodies worth considering so you can deduce appropriateness as it relates to your shooting. From the Nikon line: FM2n, FM3a, FE2, F2AS, F3HP. I shoot each of these bodies. Conditions and subject matter determine which body is called to duty. Nikon also offers a few (dozen) nice lenses, many of which are available for a song and no dance.
Did not intend for this to be a poll...
Shot nikons back in the 80's. Used an FM2, an FA, and an F4s.
Have to rule out something, so I ruled out Nikons and Canons for a start.
Plenty of others to choose from and I've always wanted to try Leica or Zeiss glass, so I'm leaning in that direction.
