If you dont want to drop too much, the n90s could be another idea, its much cheaper than the f100 and is pretty close feature wise.
I would agree with this. I have, like and use both. I "think" their min charge is $200 for repairs. I have an F100 with the tab on the aperture ring broken. The est. was $200 to replace. Picked up a replacement F100 here recently from a member in better shape with many extras.
