Nice light tent Chris, or are the gremlins camping out? Laughing

Folks, you don't mind if I take the wheel to this RV and drive it back
on the road and talk about the Nikon EM?

I drug my EM out of the armoire and though on the small side
(still abit larger than an Oly OM series) I marveled at its ergonomics and
bright viewfinder. It has a film advance problem, but I bid on this and
won:

These are still going for less than an Oly OM, and I'm amassing a number
of Nikon mount lenses, so have decided to wrap some EM's around
them. Wink I've always loved this camera, my first was in 1980.

Yes, the EM is lovely - the smallest SLR Nikon ever made! My personal favourite, however, is the FG-20 - shared the same wind-on as the F3, fulll manual mode and aperture priority, thumbwheel-y shutter speed dial - and about the same size as an EM. Look out for one, Bill, they're really cheap...

Thanks, Puplet, I'll be looking for one. Ebay had an FG model, but will
look for the later FG-20.
