dynachrome: I am glad to see that you have replied, as I have found your comments both interesting and helpful.
Interestingly, my F3HP came with the E screen. Yesterday, I used the F3HP and the 300/4.5 and was quite impressed with what I observed in the viewfinder. I had been thinking of buying a standard screen (B screen), but I may not have to do this. In case I do: does the "red dot" version require any exposure adjustment (i.e. when using the meter in the camera)? I have read that the red dot screens are brighter.
I am glad to have Nikon gear again. The FE and F3 series are terrific...solid build, dependable service, and excellent features. I am even thinking of adding an FE (so as to have the non-AI/AI option). Did you ever have problems loading film with the FE and the MD-12 attached? I do not believe I was doing anything wrong, but I just thought I would ask. As I remember it, I believe I tried everthing (and read the manual) before giving up the camera.
