    I had both too, kept the f5. It is nice to go small with the f100 but I still prefer the F5. Its the best SLR I have ever used, period. Fits perfectly in my hand and is super fast.

    The nice thing about the F6 is that it is both. The battery pack is removable; without it, the camera is the size of the F100, with it, the size of the F5. You win both ways.

    BTW, I was shooting mine this afternoon at the state capitol building - we've had a lot of rain lately, and this afternoon the sun was shining.

    I too, would be interested in reading Robert's proposed commentary on the two F models.

    Yes Robert, that is absolutely right.
    Some further reasons why I prefer the F6 over the F5:
    - improved AF
    - improved 3D-Color-Matrix-Metering
    - even with all old manual Nikon AI-S and the new Zeiss ZF lenses you can use the Color-Matrix-Metering , the old lenses are fully compatibel
    - with the optional changeable screens A, J an L you get the best manual focus SLR you can imagine
    - Advanced wireless lighting system
    - improved mechanics, better mirror dampening, quieter operation (low noise level)
    - better ergonomics
    - integrated data back
    - better viewfinder
    - excellent data recording with the MV-1 data reader
    - better MLU function

    It's the best 35mm SLR ever made. Worth every penny. I love it.

    Best regards,
    Jana
