The FM3A is just like an upgraded Nikon FE2 but with the mechanical shutter of the FM2, so you can use without batteries. Supposedly a pretty good mechanical SLR, but the only gripe people have is that the moving-needle lightmeter is completely useless in dim/low light situations as it can't be seen. I suggest you look for a used FM2 instead. I used to use a FE which has the same "problem".
