    Nowadays, with careful shopping, an N90s can generally be gotten for $50-60. I actually paid $31 for one, INCLUDING shipping, in very nice shape on the 'bay a couple of months ago. And the N90s doesn't have a plastic take-up sprocket that's prone to break like the F-100. IMHO, the ONLY significant advantages of the F100 are the ability to work with G-lenses, and the faster motor speeds. I think that the N90s is 85~90% of the camera of an F100 for 25% of the cost.

    If you seriously shoot film, you will find the advantages of multiple bodies which can have different stuff in each - fast or slow, color or B&W, etc. For that reason, and given the silly low cost nowadays of these cameras, I would suggest that TWO N90s bodies, or one N90s and one N80 (which can use the G lenses), offers better functionality than just one F100 body.

F90 (N90) is probably an excellent camera but I wouldn't want to part with my F100.
    Over the past ten years, I went from a Nikon FM to an N90s, then last year I got an F4 and finally this year I moved to the F100. It's simply awesome. Elsewhere on this forum I have said that I've never really regretted selling any 35mm cameras, well, the F100 is the ONE 35mm camera I won't be selling. In fact I want another one!

    according to my handy n90s manual, you can change finder screens...
    I have 2 of them, and total amount spent is less than 100 dollars with shipping on both.
