Hi Everyone, I've been tossing around the idea of getting another 35mm camera as a alternative to my RZ67 for those days where I don't purposely head out to shoot but still want a camera within arms reach for the occasional grab shot. I have a Pentax PZ-20 but don't want to jump around menus and have to toggle through a bunch of options. Simplicity is the order of the day for me. I just want one body and one prime lens either a 28mm or 35mm. I probably won't even bother with the TTL meter but will base my exposures on Sunny 16. So when I started thinking of a mechanical camera with analog controls I thought of Nikon. An old darkroom guru suggested the FM or FM2 series. After doing a little research, it seems like this is a great camera that will fit my needs perfectly. So my questions are as follows: I plan to purchase one used. I'll be going to a local camera show soon to see what any sellers may have. Other then cosmetic issues and lens fungus, what should I look for that may indicate heavy use? Any way I can guesstimate the age based on the serial number? There seems to be a FM2N model as well. Any difference to the FM2? I also see that there is the FM2T with titanium body. At KEH, this body is considerable more expensive then the regular FM2 bodies. Any advantage to this? Since I'm new to Nikon, is there any series of lens that is considered ideal? I know that Nikon as a long history of quality, but technology changes so I'm guessing whatever the newest prime series (35mm or 28mm) will give me the best sharpness and contrast. Thanks for your replies. Be Well, Marc PS - I live in LA. Any Nikon factory repair shop around? Just in case.
