I keep saying that I'm not going to buy any gear.. but it just keeps happening! Ok. I have an F4s and an FE. I like them both, but I find that the F4s can be heavy, and it is best used in Manual Focus mode. I also like the FE, but I often wish that I had a higher maximum shutter than 1/1,000. I saw an F5 on the bay which might go for a decent price (and from a reliable seller who I've purchased from in the past). I also know someone who may be selling an F100. I know the F5 is heavy, but I hear that the metering is pretty solid. Is the metering on the F100 as good as the F5? I find the metering on the FE to be problematic at times. Also, is the F5 as heavy as the F4s? Thanks for the help.
