The 7000 model which was brought out a year or so before never had the same LCD problem. Your F3 has many years left.
The true weakness of the Minolta 9000 wasn't the LCD. It was horrible AF. Even the lower-end Maxxum 7000 focuses better. I have a 9000 with a pristine LCD that I can't use, the AF sucks that bad.
