    I had owned a couple of F100s. So far, I prefer the N90s. I like the shape of its grip better, and its overall handling. I like the metal rewind fork, too. The F100 does have metal top and bottom plates, though. Overall, I think I will end up favoring the N90s.

    I'm trying to get rid of all my 35mm gear, but still have one of these. It's a great camera and very reliable.

    Having started with a fully manual FM2, I like the aperture adjustment on the lens. I find it much more intuitive than having to turn the little command dial.

    Sirius Glass: your comments are very apt.

    It cannot be a coincidence that, at least for us in Canada, the KEH catalogue comes in a plain, almost unmarked, envelope .

    KEH.com is a nice place to browse around. I just purchased a Nikkormat earlier this week but they have not shipped it out yet for some reason. I think the F100 and N90s camera's are great buys in 35mm. I have the N80 with winder myself and like it a lot.

    Coincidentally, just received a copy today. No unmarked envelope though. I guess we don't consider it porn here in the U.S.... yet.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I have an N80 and have always wondered about the N90. Does anyone know what the differences are? I have had my N80 for about 10 years now and it is still going great. Thanks for the info.

    I have owned a few N80s, and indeed the N80 is a fine value. The N90s has better build quality and a few functional differences. The N80 will not meter with AI lenses. This chart is helpful:

    And the N90s has 1/250 flash sync. A BIG advantage in my opinion.
