*Gerrad* Thanks for the advice. I think my mind is made up and after hearing so much about the F3. I will hunt for it and get one. Another question is the Flash on F3. Which one do you guys reckon? The Sb-16a or Sb-17? The sb-16a will be more expensive and heavy, but the Sb-17 will be cheaper but not "convertiable to Standard Hotshoe for other nikon cameras. The other camera I've got is the F2A, no TTL. Btw, the SB-17 has been dis-continued. Which one would you recommend?? Many thanks in advance!

Dennis.

Buy both. Let the FM3A patches what are missing in a Nikon F3. Its top speed goes one stop (1/4000) higher; Sync speed is two stops (1/250sec) while even the backup mechanical speeds is a all rounder speeds versus the poor 1/80 sec found in a F3 and lastly, it doesn't has the stupidly designed F3 flash shoe problem and comes with its own universal ISO aaccessory shoe BUT - you will be without a 5.5 speed motor drive, 22 types focusing screens, 5-6 types of interchangeable finders, mirror lockup features for macro/close up; various types of interchangeable backs and a rugged 150,000 exposures shutter curtain (where FM class is aimed to offer only 1/3 of this figure) shelled inside a almost un-breakable camera body which also housed the ultra-reliable and quartz precision controlled electronic circuitry. I had mine 18 years ago and I still have no LCD problems that you are so conerned with and as a strong tradition of the F-series parts supply will be readily available 10 years after OFFICIAL discontinuation. So, a FM3A is still a FM class and F3 is another. Peace at the middle east , Afgan and the rest of the world, including here.

Hello to all F3 users, I can't decide to go for the F3 OR Fm3a mainly because I'm worried that the spare parts for the F3 especially the LCD display will be discontinued with the camera then the F3 will not be functionable, isn't it? Imagine it without the LCD display when you can't find it from the manufacturer. Help Me! I'm really confused!

Marc:

The SB-29 sells at B&H Photo for $470.00. A used SB-21A from KEH Camera Brokers (www.KEH.com) sells for $245-255 in excellent to excellent-plus condition. My experience with KEH's EX-Plus is that it's hard to tell it from new. The problem with the SB-29 is that it is equipped with a hot-shoe connection and you have to buy an adapter to use it with the F-3. The SB-21A is made for the F-3 and requires no adapter. Sunpak also has the DX-8R and the DX-12R, which are good units, but both require special modules and cords for the F-3. If I were you, I'd get the SB-21A from KEH.

Regards,

Walt McKinney

The speed control unit on my Nikon F3 has packed up and the shop says £275 (over US$400) to replace clean mirror switches,recalibrate, test and check. I saw a second hand unit selling for under £200 so don't think it is worth repairing. Any ideas and could I fix it myself? I live in London, England.

Thanks for your feedback
