Well, the FM2N was listed in EX+. It looks new except for the fact it was dropped on it's head. The flash shoe is tilted about 10 degrees and you can't mount a flash. It's amazing there are no scratches on the body anywhere. I called and they only have a black FM2N in EX but not EX+ so I said I'll call tomorrow with my decision. Maybe I should take a chrome one because of the the brassing issue. What would you do???

And the Nikomat FTN-looks great for EX-almost no brassing. But the slower shutter speeds are clearly too long, especially the 1/2 and 1s speeds. But I'll keep that one because it didn't cost that much and I wanted it more for collecting than to use. Maybe I can find someone to do a CLA on it later.

What a bummer. Makes me wish I would have put my Christmas bonus in the bank
