I've done a bit of reading, but there are SO MANY 35mm SLR's out there, especially when you include searching for older models, that I am having a hard time even narrowing down my decisions. So I will list what I consider to be "musts" in the camera I want. 1) Full manual control, including focus. If it has auto modes, that's fine, but I don't need or want them particularly. 2) A wide range of shutter speeds. Preferably up to 1/4000", but not necessary to go THAT high. 3) Some sort of built in metering. At LEAST a +/- indicator to show if I'm over or under exposed, but one that can show how MUCH I am over or under would be even better. Here is what I would "LIKE" to have, but would be willing to live without. 1) A depth of field preview button. 2) A hotshoe for an external flash. I will be doing mostly outdoor shooting, and I want to get a nice 35 and/or 50mm prime lens with it. My budget will be up to $250 MAYBE. $150'ish or below would be even better though. I recieved a few recommendations in a previous thread, but now I that I have my requirements narrowed down a bit, I think a seperate thread will help out a lot. Thanks in advance for any advice or input!
