I didn't mean to offend you. All I'm saying is that the litle d100 was created from the N80 as a less expensive alternative (in contrast to the D1 series) for the pro-summer market. It inherits the same focusing and meetering system from the N80 and despite being a tad more expensive than the F5 it is not packed with all Nikon's best AF and meetering technology. Hence, comparing F5 against D100 is like comparing F5 against N80.
You're absolutely right, it's not the tool for professionals shooting sports or dance under low light conditions. The D1h was designed for that purpose and it is good for that.
