    the 8008 was a troublesome camera for me... owned 4... and they all were in and out of Nikon service from time to time.
    Funny. Lucky...I guess. I've had an N8008s for 20m years and not a problem. I also have 3 F90X.

    A few years ago, I received a Nikon N70 as a gift from a colleague who was going digital. I started using the inexpensive auto exposure/auto focus N70 as a backup to my Nikon F4.

    I am unable to compare the N70 to the N60, N80, N90, or N8008; however, I am impressed with the performance of the N70 enough to recommend that you also consider it.

    Glad someone mentioned the N70. That is what I settled on. Being a confirmed manual focus user I had ignored AF for years until it occured to me and my aging eyes that AF may have advantages in some situations (i.e. grandchildren).

    Bought a 4004s, then a 5005 (slow AF and couldn't meter with MF lenses) and then a F100. The F100 is a great camera if used often but I don't like the weight and having to relearn it each time. The N70 can meter with AI and Ais lenses and is relatively lightweight.

    I have the N65 and an N90s and, for me, the only advantage of the N65 is that it is quite a bit smaller/lighter than the N90s* and Nikon's ML-L3 wireless remote will work with it... and I do love that little remote

    Otherwise, go with the N90s. Great camera, killer prices on KEH.

    Yes, I'll chime in here too. The N90/F90 cameras are an incredible bargain and are
    ruggedly built.

    I wish they had older style controls though like the F4 and N2020 but that's because
    I'm old school I guess.

    If you wait long enough, the list will contain all the cameras Nikon has ever produced....
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
