I think I found my perfect lens to go with it, the 35/2.8 AI Nikkor ...

Steve, since I have again a FM2 I am wondering which 35mm lense I should look for.

I read a lot, some people are saying the newer AF version would be better than the old AI version - but I don't like AF lenses on the FM 2 body - and I am pretty uncertain if I should look for the f2.0 version or the f2.8 version. You are very happy with your f2.8 version, seems to be a reference for me.

I guess you will have an advice for me.

Thanks in ahead.

Get the older Nikkor 2/35 Ai oder Ai-S, they perform way better than their newer, optimized for compactness AF counterpart.
