"Nikon Manual (preferably FM)"



          

I'd like to buy a used Nikon Manual body. I need a manual to replace my *gasp* Minolta XGM (yes, I'm ashamed, but it's what my parents gave me when I first got into photography). I love being able to switch from my N80 to a manual camera, but it really sucks not being able to use my nikkor lenses. Anyone out there got a body for sale?

HI there don't be ashamed of your Minolta XG-M, older manual MInolta camera's especially the XK, XE7 and XD-11 and XG-M are great cameras comparable to many of the nikon's and usually were in the forefront of camera functions and optics in lenses, the XD-11 was the 1st camera to ever have a program function, Minolta was the 1st to have aAF camera the MAx7000, but it is nice to have a manual nikon camera so to interchange with autofocus cameras , just wish Minolta would have done the same.

Hi,
I have a mint FM2/T "Titan" available.
It has original packaging, body cap, documentation, and USA Warranty card.
This Titanium version of the FM2n is said to be much smoother and is of course lighter. They're pretty hard to find, as people tend to not part with them .
Check out http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonfmseries/fm2t/index.htm
for a nice review.
Let me know if you're interested.
Happy hunting!
