I have the F5 too.
I do use many of the features.
One is the shape of the body, it is a joy to hold.
AF is very important to me, my eyes are getting old.
Use with speed lights is sweet.
IMO the meter is very nice for an in camera meter, I even use "A" on occasion. Still prefer an incident meter and "M" but in a pinch it is just fine.
Sure there are things I don't use but that's ok.
