After a year of dealing with my Nikon FE, it is not cooperating and is constantly jamming and locking up on me. I've had it serviced twice, the second time was supposed to be a sure fix, but the problem still haunts me. At this point I am very fed up with it and will most likely be using it as a doorstop/paperweight/etc. So now I am on the lookout for a new Nikon body. After a bit of reading, I have become really interested in the Fxx/Nxxxx series. For some reason I am attracted to the elctronic-ness of them, especially since I tended to shoot in aperture priority with my FE a lot of the time. I still have one fully mechanical Nikon-mount body, my trusty Kiev-19 which I have full confidence in, so I am set in that department. Now, I have three AI primes that I use and these are the lenses I plan on using. I, obviously, want metering with the AI lenses so that's a big requirement. I also need to be able to manually punch in the ISO and override the DX coding, but I think that most of them can do that. Other than that I don't have any other major requirements, at least not off the top of my head. My one big concern though is the viewfinder/focusing screen issue. I want to be able to focus with ease, so something like a microprism would be a pretty important thing to have. I've read that they have the electronic rangefinder, but how about the screens themselves? I'm hoping that they're not like those in the new Nikon DSLRs because those are, quite frankly, absolute crap when it comes to manual focusing or seeing things even. I would like to know what focusing on this series is like, so tell me about that. So yeah, let's hear it. What's good and what's out there? EDIT: How responsive is the electronic rangefinder? From my reasearch it seems to be that it is very easy to use and that sounds great, but how quick is it to check your focus?
