    Probably too much, but I'd probably really consider it.

    a reissue of the original F, but with a matrix meter, hinge back, SWM focus capability, Ai-S tab, and aperture priority, would be fucking amazing.

    pair it with a 35/50/85 set of f/1.4 lenses that have the optics from the "G" lenses but in manual Ai-S legacy styled barrels with aperture rings.

    Not a lot about $3000 for the body may be they add a new AI lens for $500 or so.

    It's not fun! A Nikon F with AI tab, matrix and aperture priority mode. Simply not fun.

    I heard Nikon hired Sover Wong and put him in charge of the project...

    Yes, I heard that as well. Probably from the same source.

    Buy a user F2 DE-1 series E 5cm and some Trix and be happy. Or even some Double-X.

    Fs have horrible mirror bounce.

    Seriously I understand from something I read online recently that Canon will still make the New F1 to special order, if that is true God knows what the price would be.

    How about a beefed-up N2000, w/100% viewfinder?
