    Ive been tempted, lately, by the FA for an extra film body. Ive never tried one, but some of its features (matrix metering!) are interesting. And I figure it might be a nice companion for the FM2n. Alternatively; the F3 HP again.
    What do you say?

    I'd be curious too. I've looked at the FA but am considering the F3HP for better viewfinder and the focus screens. Am after a film body to carry at the same time as a D700 for street and to share zeiss lenses between them. An FA(625g) might be 150g lighter but its a body design that was well proven and is regarded as extremely durable.

    I figure that if G or AF lenses are used then the viewfinder is a lower priority so I'm chasing the F3's better viewfinder.
