I know many of you have been on the edge of your seats but, I finally decided on an F2. I installed a a ground glass with a grid and have a magnifying waist level finder. The remote shutter release cable was a breeze to find (and cheap). I went with the F2 because of the dedicated MLU, the fact that it has a mechanical shutter and interchangeable finders. I'm in the habit of using a handheld meter so, not having a metered prism is not an issue so, no battery at all do worry about. The only thing I need is that little cold shoe mount doo-hicky so I can use my cold shoe mount bubble level.
So, I'm pretty happy.
