    Nikon new cameras / 2004

    Nikon announced a new F series camera, the F6
    http://nikonimaging.com/global/produ...4/f6/index.htm

    IMHO the most important feature (or lach thereof) is the detachable prism.
    Otherwise a great camera.
    Mama took my APX away.....

    She looks sweet But I agree about the "detachable prism".

    At least it looks like Nikon are continuing to invest in R&D for film

    I have to say the FM3a has more interest for me (followed by the f100).

    And their old rangefinders look downright juicy.

    The only difference I've found in the way I've used both the F100 and F80 is the F100 is faster with auto-focus and has a nice heavy metal feel. Given the choice again I think I would have stayed with the F80 and not gone out to buy the F100. There again I went out to buy extra film and like a fool held the F100 which resulted in me buying it

    Very true! My Pentax LX was just as good as the Nikons I've had, the only real benefits are I can take pictures quicker and have the auto-focus when my eyes are failing.

    EricR argued: "does it make better pics than my old Nikkormat FTN? i think not."

    That's an unfair comparison. Shame on you.

    Best,

    Which will likely be long after the F100 spits out its batteries and drops its lenses.

    Would like to say the F100 metering is absolutely outstanding (& it looks like the F6's is even better) and lifts your expectations and ... er ..... relieves your thinking, and weighs a ton. Unfortunately when one has to learn how to really photograph, one can be left up in the air, paddling furiously, without net.
