I want to get a MF body like the F3HP or FA I had before(and won't sell it this time). Which one is more reliable? Are parts for the F3 easier to get since the camera was made up to the turn of the century? I know the F3 has a slower flash sync speed and non standard flash shoe but it's not important. Which one would you get to depend on for shooting and not just being a shelf queen?
