Lightweight. Easy to use. Clear viewfinder. Hard working camera.
Flash sync could be faster, and lacks depth of field preview.
I own two Nikon FG SLR cameras, and I have been through some very rough terrain with both (one loaded with the standard lens, and the other with a Vivitar 70-210 zoom lens), and have not had any problems with them at all. One was dropped from a considerable height and is still working like new, even though the Data Back has a bad marking on it. My only problem is that my eyesight is starting to fail, making it harder to focus than when I purchased them back in 1989. I like all the features, and suggest that anyone wanting to do serious photography should consider the FG because of the reliability of the camera.
