I lusted after an FA from the moment that I saw the advertisement & was smitten the moment that I got my hands on one. I did think of an F3 but the AMP metering & shutter priority in the FA tilted me towards it. A few years back I picked up an F3 to give my FA a quieter life & have since added a second. The 80/20 meter seems to me to be as accurate if not more so than AMP. FA's definitely aren't all bad. Apart from needing to replace the foam mine hasn't given me any problems in 26 years.
