But my kiev 4 is currently experiencing some problems and cannot be used but that's not what i'm here for. I am planning to buy a new Nikon film camera preferably something affordable and from the F series but i cannot make up my mind even after reading reviews because i have no experience with them and what so ever.

I would love to hear you comments and experience with the F series or feel free to introduce other affordable nikon camera that i might not have heard of, my budget is somewhere between 100-300 and am willing to go for more if i need better lenses.

I would greatly appreciate your help and opinions and am open to suggestions, heck i'm even conflicted between the canon series as i have heard good things about the AE-1 so please guide me!
