Hi Richard,
Don't know how much you want to spend, but I can recommend the Nikon Fm3a.
See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_FM3A
A beautiful camera and easy to use for your son.
There is also a beautiful Nikkor 45 mm f/2.8P pancake lens.
It has aperture priority auto-exposure mode, so no metering problems.
And your F2 will be save for some several years more ......
