Pros: Simply perfect

Cons: nothing

Opinion: I am not talking about FM2 but FM, the first but practically identical to FM2 apart from the shutter speed. I gave it in 1979 to my wife accompanied by the Nikkor 50mm f1.8, the 28mm f2.8 and the 135mm f2.8. A few years later I also gave her the cheap zoom E70-150mm f3.5. Extraordinary indestructible machine working even without battery. We still have it and now it is in the hands of our daughter, graphics and art designer in a major design company that sometimes still uses it for advertising images. What about.... a pillar of photography with a capital F when everything was in the photographer's hands and there were no Photoshop and Lightroom parachutes

Pros: all

Cons: nothing

Opinion: I've used it on several occasions and fallen in love with it. I took weddings as a support photographer, we talk about the 90s when weddings were taken in Hasselblad 6x6 for color and black and white in 35mm. Even at my wedding my photographer friends took the BN in FM2n and some pictures of my wife I took it myself. I've never had one of my own and every time I open eBay I try to find one to buy but then I don't because I don't have Nikon optics. as Basil says, they are machines that never stop. my father bought a Minolta SRT101 back in 1075 and is still in my bag fully functional, all iron and brass, snaps at -30 and +50 (if you can hold it). the FM2 has a big extra gear, shoots up to 1/4000" which was a lot of stuff at the time. Minolta, Canon, Leica, Olympus and Contax reached a maximum of 1/1000"!!! listen to Basil, NEVER SELL IT!

Pros: Mechanical camera, reliable, robust, essential, never ages, and a tree always green! Like all mechanical cameras of the time! I also had the Oly om1... who has had the pleasure of shooting with these cameras knows what they are talking about! I stupidly sold fm2 for digital switchover!

Cons: It tends to overexpose... but once it happens it becomes irreplaceable!!!

Opinion: This nikon and forever... bought new with its fiftieth, paid in 1988 1 million and 200 thousand lire... what about this camera? It's not outdated, it always works, you take the photos, time, diaphragm, mf and shots... I always regret selling it... without automatisms... he had focused on the shot and you took home beautiful photos... I photographed everything with fm2, sports, events etc... the B&W I took it with Kodak 400 iso exposed to 800 I have prints of my children and grandchildren from when they were wonderful children!! I mean, it's an old glory! My modest advice to those who still own this camera! YOU'D NEVER SELL IT!!! Good light at all!

Pros: Solid and reliable in every situation

Cons: they don't produce it anymore

Opinion: Body of excellent workmanship, heavy at the right point and very robust. It works almost always (as long as you still know how to photograph without an exhibition.... 16 :-)). Great for those who still use film and also for those who want to learn. It's a body I'd carry everywhere because it's very reliable in any condition. Too bad they don't do them like that anymore. Very reliable display and interchangeable focus slides, better than that..... It also has the pre-lift of the mirror in the timed shot (things that some modern full frames do not have).

Pros: Solid, perfect for learning, 1/250 flash sync, 1/4000, operates without a battery. Mine is a FM2n

Cons: A bit 'noisy shooting, lack of window to read the type of film loaded, lack of reading spot meter.

Opinion: I continue to use it to do some roller especially in b / n, it is always a pleasure to take in hand, the hand focheggiatura is facilitated by the excellent sights, completely mechanical, no battery meter works separately. A nice car to have in the collection, for full hollow I feel I can say that it has also kept the price.
