    Sig says all. Was able to trade the F4s with the 105/2.8 Micro (yes, I'll miss that from time to time, but at least it wasn't my 85/1.8) and an SB-80DX that I got for $20 toward the F5. Price on the F5 was dropped from $399 to $299, so I wound up paying $4.38. Also had a brand new pair of Energizer Ultimate Lithiums thrown in for free to supplement the six I pulled from the F4s at time of the trade-in.

    Body is in pretty nice shape with only minor wear on the DP-30 and near the strap lug on the rewind side. Is the 4,005th body made.

    I'd never sell a lens to replace a camera with the next generation model. Especially when we're talking film cameras. It generally ends up buying the lens again, losing more money! But anyway, enjoy your new/old/new/reunited/reacquired camera
    Have/had Mamiya RB, Rollei 6003, Hasselblad, Nikonos, Canon EOS, Leica R, Fuji Instax...and some other stuff

    In my case, the 105/2.8 is a lens I will miss, not due to the focal length or speed, but due to being a macro lens. It was too close to my 85/1.8 to really be a lens I'd use frequently. So, I will likely get a 55-60mm macro instead. If I can find a user 60/2.8 Micro-Nikkor, that'd be ideal, since it'd be a lens that I could loan to my sister for when she wanted to do macro photography with her off-topic D90, which won't meter with manual Nikkors. I'd have to add a prong to it, for use with the F FTn and the Nikomat, but, it'd work on all of the Nikons we own.
