    I thought 's' means 'spot' !!

    I'm not sure why it's the N90s in the US - it's the F90x everywhere else.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Nikon didn't want to service "gray market" goods in the US under warranty. They got tired of doing this by serial number and decided to use model numbers to indicate goods officially imported by Nikon US and those purchased outside the US and imported by someone other than Nikon US.
    No US model number means no US Nikon warranty repair regardless of purchase date.

    I knew about the F/N difference... but I'm puzzled by the x/s difference.

    I don't know why, but there was already an N8008S (F801S elsewhere) and F4s. Maybe they thought we Americans would be confused by more letters other than 's' -- of course, it fits, since to me the N90s is the quintessential "Nikon of the '90s."

    n90s

    I'am new to the forum having just joined, I have an n90 and a n90s and I love them both but to me the n90s is a faster camera, and it's a wokhorse for everything you want to do with it...rick.....

    Hmm. Just scored a 50mm f/1.8 AF and 28-70 f/3.5-4.5 AF for $10. I now have the N90S, 60mm f/2.8 micro Nikkor AF and these two lenses. I think I'll shoot a roll of film this weekend to make sure everyone is happy with each other.

    Got mine from KEH on sale for $29, supposedly in BGN condition. Honestly, I cannot find a blemish on it, and it works beautifully. It doesn't even have the sticky back that many folks complain of.

    My vote, get it.

    I do get a vote, right? Someone told me I did.

    The N90s does not have many verticals programmed into the Matrix meter; the F100 has more. The N90s will also not function w/stabilization or G lenses. I have both, but at least the N90s has metal catches on the back--not plastic like the F100(mine broke).
