    F100 serves me well, and will for a long time.
    What? It's barely bigger than the F100 and almost petite compared to Battleship F5. Still puzzles me that Nikon went ahead with an "F Lite" when demand for a new pro film body was iffy at best. Beautiful, though.

    No. I don't own the other two models either, the F2 is about the last Nikon slr that I would consider.

    Ok. I can see my credit card getting a nasty shock in the near future. What's convinced me is the F6's modernity - it can use CLS, and the stand-out for me is the way it handles shooting data and film imprinting - light years ahead of the F4 with the MF23 and something that the F100 doesn't even bring to the party.
    Of course, the 500lb gorilla in the corner is the crazy price these things command... ten times what I paid for my F100...

    I like my F-100. So much so that I have three of them. While F-6 would be nicer, there is nothing I feel lacking using F-100. So I'll keep mine.... all 3 of them.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Bottom line is that there are a lot of good Nikon bodies, but the F6 is the pinnacle. Period. You will NEVER regret that purchase.

    The F4 is a solid camera, it has to be said...worthy of the F line. It also has a rangefinder focus confirmation, for use with manual focusing. And its big advantage is matrix metering with older lenses.

    It seems the big question is what advantages the F6 has over the excellent F100 - and whether those advantages are enough for you to make the switch. I can say you can't go wrong with either camera.

    I have never had the F5 or F6 but of all the cameras I have ever owned the F4 I should have never sold. Sold it to get into medium format, after 3 months give the med to my daughter. I have used D90's and now have 2 D-80's which I do like. Would gladly pay shipping on the F4:^)

    I'd get an F5, and I do intend to. The F6 is too much money and the F5 is also a bit heavier duty with its body/weather sealing etc so I believe.

    I'd like an F4 but I wouldn't get one now even though their quite cheap, for one reason being its not going to give me anything that my F90x doesn't and the F100/F5/F6 all will work with nikons new idea of a breed of 'G' lenses (with no aperture ring)... where an F4 or my F90x won't work seamlessly. Or you could just buy the current lenses with the aperture ring, or 2nd hand ones if you just have to have something a bit older.
    All that really matters in the end is the image, not what your using to create it.

    I have a couple of F4's and F-100's and that's all I need. I like my "old" lenses.
