Hmm, I guess I will be happy with either one then, its just a matter of how long I can hold out for a deal on an NewF1 - Only a real steal on one of these is in my prise range right now, where as the average EF deal is quite accessible... I guess its up to my patience, and how long I can bear missing things because I dont have the right film in my camera

Thanks for all your input, its great since your experiences are priceless to me - there is no better way to really find out about something than from first hand accounts of people NOT trying to sell you something! Thanks!
