My worthless opinion and I don't have much experience with 35mm SLR's ( see signature) I feel the F3 is the best of the era and the most durable pro SLR.
No doubt that much can be said (much has been said!) about the Nikon F3!

Too bad given your seeming enthusiasm about the New F-1 but I can understand that not everyone is so inclined. Putting your money where you mouth is is a good testament for it.

Personally, I thoroughly enjoy the history and can appreciate the fine qualities of these fine AE capable light boxes . . .
