    Do you know the F90x?
    Could be a good option, as for the zoom, how about a 28-105mm IF D?
    Good luck!

    I'm suppriesed your saying the F80 has slow AF. F90x is the the predecessor to the F100?

    I use to have an F80, one F5 and one F100, I sold the F80, the F5, and kept the F100.
    Compared with the other 2, the F80 is a sleeper, obviously they aren`t playing in the same league, but if you really want a fast and precise AF, then go for the F90x or the F100 at least.
    Yes, the F100 is the "upgrade" of the F90, and the F80 of the F70.
    I know some professionals still using F90`s as back-up cameras, still a very good machine.
    Decide wisely!

    Cheers

    First semester is over - and the influence of Christmas spending is overwhelming, I find - across the board - not just in camera equipment.
    Still - all things aside, can you imagine how much this stuff would cost were it not for the digital epidemic? I like a good deal as much as the next guy, but I sometimes reflect on the fact that the great prices I buy my equipment for a are a symptom of a potentially terminal disease of the hobby I love...

    I know some that are using them for a primary... I have used an N90S and an N80 exclusively and the N90 is far better in regards to the AF speed. It is also vastly superior in dark environments. However, I love using the N80 for street stuff. Personally, I don't wait for something to shoot then quickly try to get it. I'm usually anticipating the shot and have the AF already engaged. It also has that tracking system that follows the subject and continues to refocus. I know they all have it but it works well. Its light and very easy to use and the only primary lens I have is the 85mm 1.8... I use zooms (even the G lenses) an awful lot. I do tread lightly with both the body and lenses. Obviously, they are not as durable but quite capable.
