Need advice on matching FM2N with zoom lens
I am looking to purchase a zoom lens with a range of about 70-300mm. Which lens would match up with the FM2N well? I also want it to be the fastest lens I can get for the money. My budget is up to about $400 give or take $50. Any advice would be great. Thanks

You can use any AF lens, of course, (ok, not the new "G") but a MF lens is much smoother and more comfortable to focus due to the focusing mechanism and grip.
Zoom telephotos seem to come in two flavors: f2.8, or f4.5/5.6 (or f4.5/6.3) With the slower variety, plan on buying a plain focusing screen for the FM2. The default microprism screen's center will be a dark useless annoyance. Look at www.KEH.com for used AI zooms. (And hopefully you'll notice the prices on AI primes)---scott
