I believe that I have narrowed my choice to two ranges of cameras - if you would suggest another please tell me.
I want a camera to learn on (in school classes, and on my own time) and to take good pictures of, well, mountain biking (and some scenery too).
I think that if I go the route of fully manual, it will be the Nikon FM2n, or similar. Whereas if I choose to go autofocus I would pick the Canon EOS 630, or if I can find a good price, EOS RT. If you believe there is a better camera for my uses in either category please specify, as I know very little about photography.
Thanks a lot, and sorry about my double post B$,
