My instinct would be to carry a mechanical body like an F2A/F2AS, personally - that way you don't have to worry about electronics. You do lose some convenience, though.
I do have an F2, and I also thought about my early Canon F1 but I value those more due to their age. I also want the speed of the F5 as many of my photos will be of fast moving bikes. I guess I shouldn't be to concerned really as F5s are pretty easy to find but it could get expensive if I have to keep replacing the things.
