In Topic: Adding an FE-2

It looks nice. A bit later than mine, does it still have the flippable Ai prong or is it one piece with the plastic ring?

Sorry for the late response, but the answer is plastic

You will either love or hate the match-needle meter in the FE-2. I very much prefer the FE-2 meter over the FM-2 one.
Make sure to carry spare batteries as the shutter will only operate on B and X speeds with a dead battery.
The FE-2 has the same Ai coupling as the F3 and F4, where you can flip the prong away to use stop-down metering with unmodified pre-Ai lenses. I am not sure if the FM-2 had this feature.

Here’s the FE-2 I bought. First impressions re all favorable.bd649364a89e04ee46c598cc56826bb4.jpg083894d333455893f89bcd0f16740b35.jpgb95e6caf471d6c36c16383a4656a595b.jpg92fd4120bad18feeb02472b8c6b3d2f8.jpg00f1a607cfb7056aa10d304b354969ae.jpg

Thanks for the info. Years ago I used Canon F 1’s with match needle. Very accurate. One of the reasons I bought the FE-2.

When it comes to teleconverters stick with your lens maker. That takes care of any compatibility problems.

I use to use a Benbo from England. Very versatile for micro shots.
