  1. Hey everyone,

    i have a question. Well this coming school year, ill be taking photo in school and i need a film camera. I was looking into getting a FM10.

    My question is: Does anyone know is the lenses i have will fit the FM10?

    I have the 18-55 VR. 55-200VR. 70-300 Telephoto. 50mm f/1.8.

    Thank you everyone,

    Charlie
     
  2. They will fit (ie, they will mount), but the 18-55 and 55-200 will not cover the entire frame, and you will not be able to set the aperture on the 70-300. Only your 50mm lens will fully function as you want to will full manual control.

    Yep, only the 50.

    Don't know the price of the FM10 (never seen one) but you might be better getting a nice used FM2n, FE2, or even an FG (not the FG20). The old bodies are solid and offer everything you'll need.

    Look on http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/photography.htm for more information.

    Very true, forget about the plasticy Cosina-made FM10.

  6. haha sorry chris, i forgot to check back here. I figured the other spot was better for this, and would get quicker replies, but yes i am being lent a N80 by Roger, but i will end up buying a film for myself too at some point, so thank you all for your replies!

    The FM10 is a great camera.
