    It is still the best 35mm body you can buy.

    Bret , you made a typo. Your statement should have read : It is still the
    best 35mm body you can buy from Canon.

    As everyone in the know- know's, the Nikon F5 is still the best 35mm body
    anyone can buy.

  6. Interesting!

    Can you explain why they are so readily available on EBay, having been used
    once or twice, and at a significant discount from the MSRP?

    Can you tell us why there are so few rave reviews of the F5, especially in
    proportion to the pans/rants? If this was indeed the finest 35mm camera
    now available, one would think that its virtues would be extolled
    abundantly. So far as I can tell, this is not the case.

    I grant you that it's the finest new camera body now available with
    interchangeable viewfinders, and that must count for something, else I'd
    have considered giving up my LX at least once (probably only once,

    I grant you also that the Nikon brand name carries a great amount of clout,
    but do you suppose that brand loyalty might oughta be subject to a reality
    check once in a while?

    Please elaborate!

    Probably due to the fact that there are alot of idiots jumping on the
    digital bandwagon right now.
    Probably because the F5 is so great there is no reason to talk it up to sell
    Nikon is best , nuff said ;-]

    Brand loyalty , I never heard of it.

    If the F5 is aything like the F4 a reasonable thing against it would be
    its bulk, but that can be said of other cameras.

    Not bad, Bret. Shame 'bout that thing behind her head. And the slightly odd
    crop (where do her hands go? second thought, don't answer that).

    Nikon in Germany just got a F5 in for service (not for repair) it had made
    more than
    1 million exposures. That should speak for itself........

    Pro photog sent in the machine for what would be no more than a CLA and
    the Nikon service center found the counter at well over a million
    frames. A link to that has been posted here before, Google away.
