    Looking for Nikon FM black body

    Anyone out there with a Nikon FM body to sell (black only, NO chrome)? Cosmetics are unimportant as long as there are no major dings affecting function (brassing and nicks are ok, but a bent back that won't close properly isn't).

    Meter should work, as well as hot shoe, and shutter speeds should be accurate. I realize that as an all mechanical camera 30 years old that shutter speeds of 1/250 and faster might be off a fraction of a stop. No problem.

    Can pay via PayPal as needed. Just indicate your offer price. I don't need lenses, flash or other accessories, just the body.

    If I find one elsewhere, I will reply to this post accordingly. Thanks!

    I've got one, but I need to find out if a friend wants it first. I'll PM you if it's available.

    Okay, it's yours if you want it. Here's a set a photos I just made:

    As you can see, it's very clean. It's been a long time since I used it, but it shows no wear at all.

    I saw recent sales on eBay between $69 and $100. How about $80 plus $13 for shipping?

    I just best offered one on eBay for $40 plus ridiculous $10 for shipping (these bodies will fit in a Priority Mail box for $4.95 but eBay sellers charge too much). I should have the body in a few days, if it isn't functional I will let you know. Yours is cosmetically in better shape.

    Well, I am back in the market again for an FM...if you still have yours, that is. I bought one on eBay for $40 with $10 shipping and paid on the 15th of last month, but the seller never shipped it (I think that he relisted it and sold it to someone else). Ebay got my $$ refunded, so I can purchase yours. I can't offer what you are asking, see if you can negotiate somewhat. I'll give you thumbs up, yours looks in fine condition from the photos.

    Sorry, after you said you were going with another, I sold it.
