I'm posting this here because I want the D1 users input for this question. I had already posted this question to the F5 guys the other day and have received a lot of good insight on why I should look at the F5, but I thought it only be fair if I were to ask you D1 guys the same so I can have a good list of pro-cons in my thought on the issue.

I love my F4s and I doubt I'll have money any time soon, so this is a question more for an education than a purchase. If I were to come into let's say 2 grand, and had to chose over buying a used D1* series, or an F5, what advantages does the F5 over me with a world going digital? Why an F over a D series pro body?

For those of you who are new and have not seen much of what I post, I'll add this little bit. I shoot everything from models, to news. By trade and education, I am a photojournalist, but I shoot alto of trains as well.
