I just saw this thread, so I want to introduce myself as well. My name is Jan and I live in the south of Germany. Ever since I started photography I used Nikon. Started with my fathers F301 (I think it was called N2000 in the US). Later bought myself a FA, changed to the FM2 and used this until about 10 years ago when I got the FM3a. Also used a Nikonos V (still have is, but didn't go diving in a long time). I did a lot of traveling and the FM2 never let me down. Just "upgraded" to a DSLR a few months ago by getting a D700 (so I can keep using my MF primes, especially the wide ones). I hope this will get me back to photography as I didn't have too much time in the last years.
I actually did work for Nikon as a freelancer in tech support, at the Photokina and on road shows. It was a funny experience.
This really is a good forum with a lot of very good photographers I must say.
