I like the FG. I’m not sure why they aren’t more popular. It has full manual settings, yet the addition of aperture priority and program automatic modes make it easy to shoot in almost any conditions.
I defeated the handy size of the FG’s body by fitting one of my large zoom lenses and taking it on a bird watching adventure. This snowy owl and two of his friends have been residing at our local state beach all winter.
It performed nicely, although I prefer the images of birdwatchers to those I caught of the owl.
Beth and I finished the roll with a 28mm lens at our local ice cream shop. The calendar may say it’s spring, but it’s still hat weather.
