This outstanding 35mm camera is one of Nikon's treasures. The 3-D matrix meter is spot on and the auto-focus is blisteringly fast. You can't go wrong picking up a good copy of one of these cameras today. Film lives!
Only From Nikon do you get a professional 35mm SLR for less than a thousand dollars that is excellent quality and loaded with features. True, other brands also have similar equipment, but with Nikon you can use any Nikon lens produced since the beginning. I have used only Nikon in my twelve years as a semi-pro photographer. I started with an N8008s, which is still shooting, an FM-2n, F4s, F4e, N90s, F3HP and now, finally, the F100 with MB-15 Power Pack. Believe me, after shooting the F100 I am glad I didn't buy the more expensive, and excellent F5. Unless your are a pro shooting for National Geographic (they also use F100)go with the F100. Easy to use, loaded with features, can connect to your PC and much more. I use mine for Outdoor/Wildlife/Aviation photos along with the F4e/N90s and am planning on buying a second F100. That's how superve it is! Buy an F100 with MB-15 Power Pack and you will be amazed at what a Nikon F100 can do.
Compact body with a bight and wide range of viewfinder, but the weight is heavy than than plastic one.
I like it because of its light weight and capabilities; its build quality leaves room for improvement. The biggest setback is that the viewfinder is built as an integral part of the top plate, making repair esp. time-consuming and costly.
