It is not as if I need a new camera, but recently I have been looking at a couple of my non-AI Nikkors that doesn't see much action on my currently only compatible camera; an F3 - mostly because I am lazy when it comes to stop-down-metering I guess. Talking about lazy, I want to find a body with the least likely chance of issues and a type that is reasonably easily available. I am not certain how kind time has been to the electronics of the original Nikkormat EL, but it's AE implementation seems to be close to that of the Nikon FE; my all time favourite camera user interface. I am also a little curious about a metered F2, mostly because it holds a special status in my childhood memory of dream cameras - but I lean towards an AE capable camera. (I am not really interested in the Nikkormat FTx models) Any comments on the status of the now 45 years old EL. Are they holding up? Or what to look for or avoid if going the metered F2 route? Thanks.
