Nikon FG. 1983. I had walked into Canoga Camera to buy an AE-1 like my father-in-law had and the guy at the counter said the Nikon was a lot more camera for the same $$. Had an AE1 later on, and that guy was so right. It took 10 years before I ever got interested in that Nikon, but when I did, it was there waiting for me. No longer have the FG, but it's about 6 houses down the street. I do still have a Nikon system though. Almost replaced with 6.3 mega-pixel Fuji..........going, going.............
