Hi Fellow Manual Focus Nikonians,
I saw an F2 for sale recently that sort of grabbed my interest because I have read over the last year or so, of the great affection that many of you have for the F2 bodies. I know very very little about the bodies older than my FM2, i.e. before about 1985. I know that these older bodies are built like tanks.

Thus, if I was to consider adding an F2 to my other Nikon children, what are the strengths of that body that you would point out and say, oh go and buy it? Also, there seem to be several different versions of the F2 - can you talk to the features that make the different versions please? I get a little overwhelmed when I go to the MIR site as it is so big and voluminous on F2. (The one I saw for sale at $100 was only described as "F2 in chrome, excell condition"). I guess the F2 only has a spot meter? What type of light sensor does it use, the CDS or just what?
Thank you, Debra
