For a long time I've used a Nikon FE. Since it was introduced. For\nall that time, it's done everything I've cared to do with a camera.\nI've got the the lens it came with, along with a 28mm and a 85mm f1.8\nThe stock lens and the 28mm are AI, the 85mm is not AI, I bought it\nused way back then. Plus various other accessories (filters,\nattachments, ect.)\n\nBut now, after the most recent trip of two weeks to San Diego for the\nzoos there and several national parks on the road back home, I noticed\non some frames (not every) what looks like a light leak. This is\nmanifested as a narrow band across the image the narrow way towards\none end of the frame.\n\nIf there were no digital, buying a new film camera would seem to be a\nno brainer. But with the arrival of good digital cameras, I'd really\nrather spend real money on one of those.\n\nSo what I'm thinking about is having whatevers wrong repaired on the\nFE and buying a digital camera. I don't really want to discard a\ncamera I'm thoroughly familiar with that still takes an excellent\npicture as long as a repair is at all reasonably cost effective. I'm\nnot sure that a new film camera would take any better photos than the\nold one. I mean, it's the indian, not the arrows!\n\nThe digital camera is where the new money should go. Right?\n\nWhat's your advise/opinions on this? Or should I just move on past\nthe old equipment and embrace the now.
