Alright! I'll take your word for it. In comparison to the F5 and F4 34,000 does seem a realistic number and low in comparison.
I did manage to shoot a roll with the F6, rattled off a roll in record time, Kodachrome 200 I seem to recall! He offered me the body with the MB-40 for 1200.00 US which was a great price, and the other one I saw was with the MB-40 as well for 1600 so deals abound (at least at that time).

I do think the F6 is more in use in other areas like Germany. At least here in Hawaii most shooters are too taken with the digital.
Best Regards,
