My wife wants a 35mm film camera for christmas. She has two Pentax cameras and they both have had issues and she wants a different one. I am having a hard time researching film cameras but from what I understand, nobody makes them anymore, right? I would be looking at the used market from what I understand. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Nikon still sells the F6 brand new. If you can afford it, id get it.

what options does she want in a camera?

Nikon FM2, FM3a, F5, F100 are some awesome options for not much money
There is still Nikon FM10 (made by Cosina), Leica and Bessa which still are available new.

Sure, $$$$.
What's wrong with the Pentaxes ?
What is your price range?
Does she want an SLR or a rangefinder?
Manual or Auto or both?
