I should say "favorite viewfinder". What's your favorite viewfinder for manual focusing? The viewfinder, IMO, is one of the most important components of a camera. The only pro bodies I've tried are F2A and F4s, both with P screens. I like the F2 better. The F4 is brighter, but it's harder to focus, the split prism is not as distinct as it is in the F2 (I need a +1 diopter adjustment on my viewfinder, so the screw-in diopter on the F2 vs. the adjustable diopter on the F4 might be an factor).

So at this point the F2 has my favorite viewfinder. But I'm curious about what others think, and about the other cameras (F, F3).

I use mainly "regular" primes, 28, 50, 85 and 105mm.
