    I actually already own a Nikon N80 and I feel it is a pretty solid camera. I have a friend who was interested in buying an N80 and asked me about it. I was thinking maybe I should sell him mine(he asked if I thought of selling it) and move up to an F100. I understand that the F100 is more solidly built but are there any features i.e. AF, metering, etc. that are better in the F100 than in the N80. I've read a lot of the reviews, just wondering if anyone has any personal experience. Or would this just be a waste.

    Thanks

    i have an N80 and have used an F100 a lot. im pretty sure it doesnt really have any aditional features. however it has a metal body, the N80 is plastic. also the N80 has a built in flash, the f100 doesnt. also, the F100 has a faster frame rate. i prefer the F100, i like a heavier camera and i would never use a built in flash. however i couldnt justify buying it when i could just spend the money on lenses or a digital body. the differences arnt enough to switch up....but thats just my opinion.

    i use an N80 (F80 as its known over the pond) and from what i've read about the F100 is that it seems to be a bit more camera for a lot more money.

    what about an F5? in the UK i know u can get them used for a good price but i don't know about the states...

    one thing i don't like about the F80 compared to other SLRs with vertical grips is that it doesn't have a shutter release on the grip!
