I went with the f5 as I find many of it features similar to my d90. For example aperture priority and manual mode are very similar on both. I know my way around the Nikons and so far the f5 and n90s seem very similar to the digitals.

I also like the way the f5 feels in my hand . If I could go back I could go back I might try an f100. (at $250 excellent condition the f5 was hard to pass up.
