Nikon EM Cameras

The Nikon EM was the Rodney Dangerfield of the Nikon line, the model that "can't get no respect." Despite this, it was in some ways my favorite model.

It was held in disdain for two reasons:,

The EM was Nikon's least expensive model, and was also the lightest and smallest F mount camera ever made. It took just as good pictures as the lordly F3, since it used the same lenses.

It's shown with my 18 mm f3.5 super wide angle. I got this cheap because the blacking outside the elements was separating, so it looks pretty ugly when you look into the front of the lens...however this doesn't seem to have had any significant effect on the lens's performance.

I upgraded my EMs by replacing the viewfinder screens with the "matte" screen intended as an option for the FG, or maybe it was the FM/EM.
