I just think buying the F5 over the R8 for it's looks seems a bit nit-picky. Neither would win a beauty contest in most people's eyes. But I think they both are two of the best cameras going. It's the glass that should make or break that choice - and what kinds of things one wants to do with them. Looks should be a distant fourth or fifth, if photography is the main goal of owning it. :-) - -- ========= Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO We are born naked, wet and hungry. Then things get worse.
