    As for Nikon, forget the F65. Look into an 8008s/801s or even an N90s/F90x. These are going for very little now and are vastly better cameras than the F65.

    I liked the Elan 7/7E, but they're very light and don't give me the feeling of security I like.
    I do like the N90 NIkon, excellent pro quality camera. Lots of weddings shot with them.
