Hardly. Every PRO I know (among them from major magazines and newspapers,
magazine editors and just plain users) agrees with me on the weaknesses of
the F5, pretty much. It's an awesome camera. But it's not perfect. It needs
help in strong backlighting. It can't live up to the hype some Nikon reps
have used since the FA came out - that you'll never need to use manual
again. Or users who play with them, but don't ever really put them through
their paces.

I'm through with this, I don't have time to defend against such petty sniping.
