So, candids, improvised portraits, ect. I suppose what I'm really looking for is a reliable camera.

The F5 sounds like a nice, "little" camera to toy with. It doesn't seem to be a common problem, but I know a few people out there had an issue with the rubber covering peeling off. Have you ran into anything like that?

Well the F5 is very reliable. Next time you get a chance I recommend that you pick one up to feel how it fits with your hands. I love it, but some don't.

It can be quite imposing for candid photography. It stands out due to it's size.

I got mine practically unused so I have not come across any unpeeling rubber grip.
