I forgot about them in my opening post, but I do have an EL and EL2 also. In fact, I have two of the latter, and they are high on my list of favorite film Nikons. The only slightly annoying thing is that you can inadvertently drain the battery if you use the lock collar on the shutter button(I always just use the lever like the other Nikkormats, the F2, and the following FM/FE/FA series). The EL2 is especially nice for its silicon photocell. In other news, my FS arrived today and the FT should be here tomorrow. I'm hoping to write up the whole Nikkormat family soon.
