The N90s is no longer my main 35mm body as it has been for the last 7 years. I firmly beieve I just obtained the best 35mm film SLR camera ever made.

I just bought an F4s in excellent condition (with original box) for $325 (including an SB-25) from a nikonian.

I had been wanting an F4 at least since 2002. Back in my junior high and high school days, it was the standard camera of many of the PJs who would come into the school to take photos for the newspapers. They were easily over $2000 back then and far from what I could afford.

The camera is just wonderful! It's like a hybrid of my F3/MD-4 and N90s or N8008s. It's got the F3 feel and professional features, design, and durability, but lots of the technology that was also used in the 8008s/90s bodies.

Now all I need is an instruction manual! I can't seem to find one to download online. MIR is nice, but not quite printable to carry around when shooting. Nikon USA wanted $7 for a photocopy, and I declined.
