Funny how a thread can go, I just hope to have more sharp pictures of the ports pics I do than with manual focus, and an F100 was just to expensive (these stings still have quite a value on the used market.) So I gues the F80 is a lot better than the FE here. I don't really care about how it feels etc just needs to do it's job. In case an F100 is a load of times faster I might concider it for later though. But I remember a famous quote: "In case I would have a 1000 dollars I would be a millionair!" Guess that's thruw when you come from an FE.
