Through the years I've owned and used F2, F3, FE2, FM2, and a few AF Nikon bodies (of no consequence to mention). Now y'all got me wanting to give an FE a try too!
The regular FE is a sleeper. Its a great camera ,yes it needs batteries so is over looked by the anti battery gang. Which is good because they flock to the FM and drive its price up while we get to get great deals on a better camera muhahahhaa.The self timer lever does a neat trick on the metering which shouldn't be over looked too.
