    hi guys

    what does it mean "stop down" in this Lens Compatibility chart
    http://www.nikonlinks.com/unklbil/bodylens.htm ?

    i'm a bit fed up about my (strong) nikkormat EL..

    so for my street photography (www.gallingani.it) with 80~200 zoom do you
    suggest nikon F3 or nikon FA
    i like 100% view finder, but nikon FA should have more exposition skills.

    thanx in advance
    see you

    The original poster appears to be in Italy, so you might be a little
    more accommodating of the language used.

    I would guess that he is referring to 'exposure controls'.

    So, compare and contrast F3 & FA.

    Oh.... OK. Well, the only exposure control difference I can think of off
    the top of my head is that the FA doesn't have an exposure compensation
    dial. But there are some other differences that I think are more important.
    Like the fact that the FA has a plastic aperture coupling, so you can't
    mount the older NON-AI lenses. And overall the camera is more cheaply made.

    Also, my cat is not allowed to use the computer when I am not home!
