Isn't it fun to get new toys, even when they aren't brand-new?!
David is right!I think David has it...F4.
Hi Shaun,Great pickup Klaus! I don't use it much, but I have an F4 with grip... probably about the best feeling camera in my hands that I've ever held... And it makes a nice piece in my F lineup, right between the F3 and the F5! My goal is still to own all the Nikon Fs from F to F6 if possible. Lovely cameras every one.
F3HP, no grip, all black. No special lenses... just a couple of old Nikkors that I have obtained over the years... In fact, I think I bought it from Mitchell here on the Cafe. Great camera, but def. harder to use than the F4/F5... but easier than my old Minolta SRT-101s!!! Talk about bricks...Hi Shaun,
now you've got my interest...
F3 - which version do you own? F3AF with the special lenses? Or Titanium? Champagne or black?
Both my F4 and my F5 feel in my hands like I could use them to pound 16p nails no problem, with no harm to the cameras!Great body. I traded one of mine in on an F5, and loved it even more. Even though the F5 was a beast, there was something about that F4 heft that made me feel like I could use it as a survival tool if needed!
Install Energizer lithium AAs in it, and it’ll go to the next level!!I got an F4, and immediately got the small grip battery pack and ditched the lower battery pack.
For me, a senior citizen, the F4 + lower battery pack was too heavy.
The auto focus on the F4 was/is FAST.
Someone complained about the slow AF of a lens. I countered that the CAMERA has a LOT to do with how FAST the AF is. The AF of my D70 was a LOT slower than the F4. It was buzzzzz vs. whack.
I guess I'm a minority, I still like my old F2.
