TTL flash metering, no useless bells and whistles, just a reasonably easy to use very well constructed camera.
Wish the flash sync was a little faster, but, hey, the camera is 21 years old, and most cameras had similar flash sync back then.
I have owned my FG for over 20 years and it has never given me a problem. I have literally dragged it through the deserts of Israel and Saudi Arabia, on helicopters, in Norway winters, and the jungles of South East Asia, and in rain, sleet, snow, hail, and sandstorms and it has yet to let me down. Rugged, light weight, forgivable, and, most importantly, takes great pictures. I love the 28mm and 50mm Nikon E lenses, and also use a old Tamron 80-200 (could be better), and a great Sigma 28-105. Even with the EM winder,the camera is still light enough to dangle around ones neck without feeling strangled after an hour. If you can find one in good shape, BUY IT!!! They are selling now for about the same price as new 20 some years ago.
