If you're looking at the AF, then it is a perfect compliment to the F4.

My good pal, and fellow Apug-er, has some info on both at his site:

The Hexar might be the very camera to grab when you have 5 minutes to pack for that surprise round-the-world trip. It is just superb.

The F4 is a very, very good AF camera and a wonderful Manual focus camera.

Great stuff: good luck.

I have spent a bit of time on the Machine Planet. Dante's article/review of the Hexar AF & the F4 is what started my quest. The helpful advice and questions in response to my query on this and a couple other sites helped me form a wants and needs checklist, and the Hexar is the clear winner. Thanks again to all who responded. I hope to share photos made with my new camera once it is purchased.
