Any interest in Nikon FM's?

A friend of mine has a couple of Nikon FM bodies & some lenses. He offered them to me, but I don't really have a use for another 35mm besides my K1000. He wants to clear out stuff he's no longer using, & wondered about donating it somewhere if I didn't want it. I was wondering if he might have a chance of selling it, but since I'm in an isolated area I don't know if there's a market for it. I see there are some selling on eBay & wondered if I should recommend he try -- are many people still using this camera?

The FM is still a desireable Nikon - for one, it is one of the few models compatible with pre Ai lenses.

I strongly recommend this if the OP is interested in selling the gear. I ask anyone else inquiring about the gear do so via PM in order to stay within forum rules.

I did suggest to sell it trought marketplace because it's a photo forum, so he could have more audiance for its announce. I guess.

Again, if i did something wrong, tell me what to correct, i'll do it happily

That post was directed at the OP and anyone interested. I quoted you because your suggestion was correct. There was nothing wrong with the OP. I just wanted to make sure it didn't turn into a buy/sell thread.

It is not. As was stated in the "OP", I do not have the equipment, nor am "I" selling it. I wanted to know whether my friend should bother trying to sell it elsewhere. He is not a PF member. Thanks for the input; I will pass along the fact that there are still people out there using this camera & encourage him to try.

Yes, the FM is a desirable and capable camera. It is similar to and competed head-to-head with the Pentax KX (and MX) back-in-the-day, though in my opinion the FM deserves extra points for build and titanium vertical shutter.
