    Actually... the F3HP is a reasonably small camera if you don't have the motor drive on it. I'd be inclined to keep the F5 if I had an F3HP as my second camera.

    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?

    Sell both and get the F6.

    My 2 cents worth....

    The F6 is a great camera but is it really 3 times the camera that the F5 is? By dollars, it is. Functionally, I'd argue it isn't anywhere close.

    I sold my two F5s and kept my three F100s.

    If I could I'd sell the three F100s and get two F6 bodies.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Keep the F5 and sell the F100. The F5 is far superior in terms of metering, AF speed and durability.

    Sell the F5, keep the F100. And in the future, buy the F6.

    Does anyone have an idea of what this may be worth as a set?








    Thanks,

    I would second the nomination for the FM3A. They currently sell on Ebay for a premium to what they sold for new @ B&H

    Since I need interchangeable viewfinders, 100% viewfinder accuracy, and true mirror lock-up, I would keep the F5. Since the F6 does not have interchangeable viewfinders, I would have no reason the replace the F5 with the F6.

    KJS,

    As to your "kit" - I think you will realize more if you sell the items separately. There are some F5 users out there (ahem) who might be interested in the rechargeable batteries etc.

    If you package as a "kit" you "lose" those buyers.
