When both the Canon F-1 and Nikon F2 were the new products, I had to choose. I liked The Canon because the metre was in the body
so you didn't lose it when changing viewfinders. But I liked the Nikon glass better. The F2 is still going strong.
Interesting. I like the fact that the F/F2 have no electronics in the body. Meter craps out? Just put another finder on, send the broken one to the repairman without tying up the entire camera.
