With the FE you can also use pre-ai lenses including the 105mm f/2.5 which is superb for portraits.

...but you don't get stop-down metering. Just something to keep in mind.  (I'm an old Pentax K-Mount guy, where "compatible" lenses really are compatible.)

I'm thinking about a Nikkormat EL just so I can get one of those 105s (and have full functionality). Best and most cost-effective way to get into a good portrait lens. Another advantage to the Nikkormat is they won't get stolen like the OP's original FM because no one can lift it.
