    F6

    Today a new (>34700)F6 arrived at my doorstep. Got myself a deal with "N" to try it for a week; not satisfied for any reason ? send it back & I got my money back. Do have a AF Nikkor 80-200 2.8D/MF 85-1.4/MF Nikkor 50-1.8/MF Planar 50-1.4. Some suggestions for a wide angle AF or MF and/or test shoots?
    In 2006 got a D200 and this fricking F6 feels/handles so familiar!
    BTW; in 1980 bought a FM and still use it so I'm curious what camera I choose in 2050

    I think the F 6 will be Nikon's last pro film camera, I can't see them ever producing an F 7.

    I wonder what an F7 would be like.

    Try a Nikkor 24MM f2.8 manual focus.

    Not nearly enough film usage now to warrant the R&D, design work, etc. for an F7...but -- pretty intriguing question!

    Given most pros use digital now, wouldn't the ideal new film camera just be a solidly built manual body? Not much more you can do than the metering, build quality, etc. of an F6 or F100...or the MP.

    I need a well-built n2000 w/F6 metering wide-open w/manual lenses.

    The 28mm 2.8 AIS (not the AI) isn't super-wide, but it's a legendary hunk of glass.

    For a wide angle I'd highly recommend the 17-35/2.8 AFS. That is a spectacular lens.

    The 24mm f2.8 AI-S and (a little wider) the 20mm f/4 AI were almost always in Galen Rowell's camera bag.
    I really like the 24mm f/2.8 on my FM.
    I bought a Voigtländer Color Scopar 20mm f/3.5 for Nikon a few years ago - I wasn't satisfied, so I am still lusting for the 20mm f/4 AI.
