For me, my first ever Nikon was an FM back around 1980 or so, my memory has lost the exact time period. I miss that camera and for the last 10 years I have been trying to get around to getting another. But, the N4004s was given to me by my wife for an anniversary gift because I was missing too many shots of the kids...they were too fast.
As it turns out, that camera has been around the world, shot every kind of film and I am still using it alongside my Leicas and other Nikons. These days, I use it for slide film and I am still blown away by the results.
