I would go with an F100 or F5. If money is no object, the F6 is a fantastic film body, I can't say enough good things about it.

Processing your own film is so easy, there's no reason you shouldn't do it. It'll save you a lot of money, give you a LOT more control over your process, and if you're going to be setting up a darkroom anyway, its a bit of a no-brainer.
