I've decided I'd rather get an FA than F3HP right now. The body is less $$$, especially since I'm willing to go with a chrome one, and I wouldn't need to buy a SB-16A and SC-14 to do off camera TTL flash-I've already got a SB-80DX and SC-17 which will work with the FA. But which motor drive is a better choice? I know the md-12 can be used on other bodies. Which has a faster FPS rate? And do both accept the MC-12 remote and MR-3 shutter button?
