Most of these cameras will be good if the power grid ever fails. Film supply and development would be impossible to keep up too if this were the case. I rather enjoy the precision of my F6 and its F100 back ups. I hardly have any issues with capturing exactly what I see. Not to mention they are erginomicaly correct. Not like the square bodies of days gone by (which I do posess, F and F2). I am sure that some of the older fellas on this forum can blow my photography out of the water with thier old MF bodies, but for sheer comfort and confidence while I am shooting, and a load of teach features and interface w/modern equipment, the F6 is my choice if I could only have one 35mm for every situation.
