“After the whirlwind of auto focus, auto exposure and...”

Written on: 16/05/2008 by Woodsy44 (1 review written)

After the whirlwind of auto focus, auto exposure and digital I bought a Nikon FM2n and a 28mm F3.8 manual lens. When I wander around with this combination I am forced to think about the essential elements that (hopefully) make a good photograph - composition, exposure and critical focus. The solid 'thunk' of the shutter and then the manual wind on is a pure joy.

Manual Nikkor lenses are very sharp and the 'backwards' compatibility approach taken by Nikon means that many modern lenses will work… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2006 by rockmeister (1 review written)

After many years teaching photography, we finally got some budget to buy a good camera. Contax? too expensive and fragile. Canon? Not as rugged. Leica? Much too pricey. Nikon? Oh yes. The FM2 was such an obvious choice as a rugged workhorse that could take the abuse and still take superb pics, that we bought one, no hesitation. That was in 1986! Now, on it's twentieth anniversary, I write this in it's honour. Has it ever gone wrong? Never. Has it ever failed to produce degree level photos?… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2002 by Dave T. (1 review written)

This Nikon FM2n 35mm SLR camera taught me everything. If you wear glasses or have no patience then I would not buy this camera! It is simple and effective. After 15 years of bashing it around, I gave it to a relative and bought the FM3a. I still miss it. There is nothing bad to say about this camera, the build quality is amazing. Stick a good Nikon lens on it and you'll be amazed!… Read Full Review

INTRODUCTION

As many people would have said, only a classic would last a decade in the market. What do I have to say more about this design who is around for nearly 2 decade?

The FM2n is a significant improvement over the older FM, which is still available in the used market as a backup or student camera, for around $160. FE10 is also available as a cheaper option for student if the FM2n is considered pricey, but it is still cost higher than the FM as it is still new in the market. The higher

totally agreed with the comments on nikon FM2n, have owned other systems but still rate this nikon camera as the best. It does take time to get use to the manual focusing and also the +/- metering, but you can't get enough of the sweet sound of the shutter on every shots.

Jsutton5's Response to Elson75.'s Review

Good review on an outstanding manual camera. I bought a used FM2N on Eaby as a backup to carry with me everywhere. I have two F100s which I love dearly, but worry about leaving in the car and hauling around to work and errands around town. As the reviewer noted, the FM2 is very durable and absolutely reliable under just about any condition. Best of all, if it gets damaged beyond repair or stolen, I won't have to mortgage my house to replace it. It's an excellent investment.

The FM2n is indeed a great camera, as the reviewer said, an improvement over the earlier FM. But it should also be said in turn that the current FM3a is an undeniable improvement over the FM2n - with only $40 to $100 difference between the two cameras when in identical condition, the FM3a is the better deal, as you get all of the FM2n's features, plus AP, match needle metering, TTL flash and flash-fill compensation.

It is very difficult to say anything bad for this machine. Totally a work of art. I got mine as a second body after F4s, both of them are increadible machines, (F4s a little bit on the heavy side). Fm2n .. just get one and start enjoying photography not technology...
