I enjoyed your post about these older cameras. When I was first getting into 
photography in the early 70's, a high school friend got a 101 as a birthday
present. I was very envious! I remember it having a very bright viewfinder, and
was light but not flimsy. I can remember that CLACK! My father bought a
FTn shortly thereafter (on my recommendation) and I used it quite a bit. They
certainly were very well made. I still use a 1974 F (bought new) and still
think its Nikon's greatest camera.
