Very good camera at a fair price

  • Summary: This body was a real find at a very fair price. If you want to get into basic film photography, these are simple solid cameras, not too technical. Just be careful of damaging the titanium shutter when loading film, it may be hard to fix (this according to my repair guy).

Good film camera body for the price if you want to shoot film.

  • Summary: I bought this camera body to take pictures in film and as a backup camera. I chose the FM2 because I already have several Nikon lenses that will work with this body. This is a fully mechanical camera body (besides the exposure sensor) so shutter speed and aperture (on lens) are set manually and I don't need to worry about electronic failure. Really love this for the price I got.

Get one!

  • Summary: This thing is a tank. Properly looked after, it will outlive you. Remember to ask what kind of focusing screen is installed if buying online. The best variety (personal preference) is the split focus, particularly if you a are a digital native looking at doing some film work.

Great for my purposes, where light and focus settings are quite constant.

  • Summary: My second FM2N was purchased as a backup/spare. I use both units for aerial photography, and they seem to be ideal for that purpose if one doesn't want to spend the money required for larger format and/or digital options. The fact that this camera is basically an all manual machine, doesn't require batteries except for the light metering, and has decently high shutter speed (1/4000) suits my purposes well.

I would highly recommend this - it's more than just a camera!

  • Summary: I've had this camera for about a month or so now and I'm loving every moment with it. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing to the eyes, but along with the ease of use and it's simple design make it a perfect film SLR. I bought this camera to challenge myself and to improve my technique, and though any film slr will provide that challenge with it's limitations relative to digital slr's, the joy that comes with using this camera is unparalleled.

Excellent, but worth the price?

  • Summary: One of the best Nikon film cameras ever, yes, but, IMHO today is a little overpriced. I used to think that this camera was was almost indestructible but I do have problems with it's shutter sometime ago, so, bad luck?

If not Leica M, then Nikon FM2n and nothing else.

  • Summary: I am a Leica photographer and my humble opinion is that workmanship of Leica M3 or M4 with Leitz lenses (35mm, 50mm, 90mm, 135mm) is and most probably will always be unequaled. Having said that, there is only one SLR camera that I use from time to time and this is Nikon FM2n with Nikkor AiS optics, all the other Nikon cameras I have sleep in their bags. This is the only camera able to give me the same pleasure of photography that I get out of Leica. Isn't this enough?

Great camera!

  • Summary: Wonderful example of a fully mechanical, manual SLR. Still working after so many years. Really nicely designed and built. So recognizable and classic. The only design quibble I have is that the battery compartment does not label the direction of the batteries clearly. There's a sleeve that fits around the 2 button batteries that does have a marking, but it isn't clear which way this sleeve goes in! It's a minor thing, though.
