Actually the F3 is still available from Nikon, but at $1300.

If feels like a classic. It is a classic.
It was in production for decades i think the only body in production
longer than the M6.
It is not a camera to use if you do a lot of flash. The hotshoe is off

It was a "flagship" camrea. top of the line.
