    Yep, I`ve tried the electronic rf, but it`s basically useless for tight portraits, and how I shoot....

    What about the FM10? I heard it's a pretty good manual camera.

    F3HP

    A F100 (or its big brother F5) together with a F3 is a joyful duo.

    I love to load up the AF with some color film for the "easy to grab" shots while also putting a roll of B&W in the F3HP. I often "dupe" shots b/w the two. Of course, being "real" Nikons it means you wind up with two, rather than one, albatross bricks around your neck but heck - it the artistic price we pay!

    I'd get an F3HP for its bright, 100% finder, then pick up a few AIS lenses (or AI). The "feel" of D lenses is part of anyone's manual focus problem. They're just not intended for manual focus and the older lenses focus like a dream.

    Hmm the F3HP seems to be in the lead, and it`s the one that appeals most too

    epharis, I have a absolutely fantastic 105mm f/2.5 Ais, and will probably add something wide-ish too...

    F3HP is my vote. Beautiful viewfinder. Great camera otherwise too. The only weirdness is the flash connection (no normal hot shoe).

    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?

    A F2 is also an option, not battery dependent, very strong and durable, and works with a host of inexpensive non AIS lens. Viewfinder is very bright. Down side will not meter with AIS lens, screens and finders may be hard to find. The F3 is a very good camera, I felt it handled better for me than a F2but has a backup to a F100 the F2 has a few advantages.

    Actually the F2 will meter with AI-S lenses... if you have the Photomic or F2A meter head for the F2 you can't meter at full aperture with Series E and autofocus lenses, but you can meter in stop-down mode. AI-S lenses (with the single exception of the newer version of the 50/1.8) have the coupling shoe and meter normally.

    Of course you can get an F2AS which has AI meter coupling, and have the best of both worlds.

    I forgot about the AIS and F2A head, I had the older head and never upgraded, just bought a F3.
