The FM was one of two compact SLR's introduced by Nikon to compete in the consumer category of SLR systems with the Olympus OM line of cameras. The FM model was a fully mechanical body, with a TTL center-weighted gallium arsenide phosphide photodiode light meter that used Nikon's now-classic 60/40 percent center-weighted metering pattern. The auto-exposure counterpart to the FM was the FE, which had a match-needle light metering system,and a very accurate electronically-timed shutter that allowed either aperture-priority automatic operation,or manually adjusted match-needle exposure metering. Nikon, in introducing the FM, was responding to customer interest in a full-featured but compact SLR system.
While the Nikon FM is clearly not “the” camera for everyone overall it is an excellent value if you’re looking for a fully manual 35mm camera. Whether it’s worthy of your consideration rests largely on the last three points above.
