    I'm, too, am a proud owner of a Nikon F. It was a gift from a friend. It took me a while to figure out that it is a completely manual camera It came with the original 5.8/1.4 lens. One of the elements is cracked, but fortunately it doesn't show up in the pics. I had it CLAd and bought a Ai-S 35-105/3.5-4.5 zoom lens to go with it. I'm taking the F, the zoom, and my AF 24/2.8 D (and a hand-held light meter) with me to Cuba next month (leaving my F5 at home).

    +1. While I have kept reasonably current with Nikon's analog offerings (although I did stop at the F5), my "all-time" favorite remains - hands down - the F2AS. A chrome 1979 edition still accompanies me on all my longer photo excursions. I have, when queried as to why I still carry this "old timer" in my bag, been known, on more than a few occasions, to refer to this well-worn gem as my "insurance policy." Irrespective of conditions at hand, this battery non-dependent gem will always deliver the goods (my faith in the F2 may well explain why I now hold several in inventory...).
