Just got back from a 4,000+ mile road trip. Took the FM2N and a backup F3. The FM2N saw 99.9% of the work. Shot close to 300+ shots. It never failed. I've always loved this camera. Put the 17-35 F2.8 ED lens on it and you can make some very nice pics. It's a camera I would never sell. Ever!

An all manual classic, this is a camera you can depend upon. The perfect backup body as it keeps working without batteries.

I find it reliable and ease to handle.Sofar, got picture quality as per my settings,so the response is also good. It being one of widely used Nikon manual camera band it is very use to maintain and solve any problem related to the camera functioning.It has never failed in any weather or climatic condition.
