    Well, I'm very happy after the recent theft of my beloved Pentax K2 to receive my father's complete Nikon FE2 system as a Christmas gift. The good news is it's quite complete. The bad news is that a couple of lenses need work. The 55/2.8 Micro's blades are locked open and the 80-200/f4 has some visible oil and dust on one of the internal glass elements. Anyone care to wager a guess on typical repair costs for these type of problems (ie. are we talking twice the market price)? Thanks.


    PS I have to say that I prefer the feel of the Pentax K and M lenses, they feel much more solid than the AIS's. Optically I'm sure they're basically the same. The FE2 body is a real pleasure though.
