    Manual focus Nikon with good viewfinder.

    My F100 needs a companion.. While it`s a superfantasticfaboulus camera, it`s not that good for manual focus, the focus screen isn`t half as good as the one in my old Pentax Me Super....

    So, wich old Nikon will be the perfect match for my wonderful 105mm f/2.5 Ais?

    No, I don`t mind a camera with some beef to it So the F4, even being an AF-camera, has a nice vf?

    I second this, in my opinion the F4 is Nikons best manual fokus camera. And should the F4 be too light, take the F4s. If you want something lighter and do not wear glasses, then an FE2 might be an option. Not as dominant a camera as the F4 or F100, more unobstrusive. I have both, an F4s and an FE2 and both have their advantages over the other.

    I'd say F3HP. If your F4 runs out of juice, it's not good for much. The F3HP viewfinder is REALLY bright and shows 100% of what you get - though, in a way - that can be kind of a liability, since, when you print, you generally eat into the frame a tiny bit anyway...

    How about just getting a different screen? seems simpler, but perhaps not quite as fun as getting another camera.

    If it was that easy I`d do that, but there aren`t any screens for manual focus for the F100... Yes, there is the Brightscreen, but for what they charge, I can find a new camera....

    I'd vote for an F3 as well - I have an F100 and an F3 and I think they make a great pair. Also, on your F100, have you tried using the electronic rangefinder with your MF lenses?
