My FE was my 2nd SLR after breaking my 1st (a Ricoh) when my tripod fell over with the camera on it.. ouch! Dad claimed the Ricoh on household insurance, gave me the $$$ to which I added my paper round savings to and I trotted off to buy the FE. I must say there was a lot of agonising over whether to get it or the newly released FM2. Bought it with the 50/1.8 Series E lens cause that was all I could afford! Still have both but don't get much/any use due to other cameras purchased over the years. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's got a half exposed roll of slide film in it still.
