The D3100 is a very nice camera, but for a few dollars more you can get the D3200 which has the best sensor of any Nikon DX camera made to date. Keep in mind that your other lenses, unless they are AF-S lenses, will not auto-focus with any of the D3000-D5000 series cameras. Also, for the same price as a D3200 you could get the D5100 which would probably be my second choice, or maybe even my first choice, depending upon my needs.
As for the F4s, it was the best 35mm film camera that I have ever owned. I sold mine about four years ago. I'm not going back, and I think that once you get one of these "state of the art" digital cameras that your film days may be coming to an end too.
