Absolutely the f100 does everything an f5 can do except leave the leader out
of your film and wash your car which I am not inclined to do anyway. And is
probably used by more pros than the f5 on a 10 to 1 basis. But cost a grand.
Not my price point that day.
Part of my reason for getting the n80 was that I went from a very low tech
decade of Leica M6 and Hasselblad CM to the digital Nikon D100. A whole
world I had to learn to live in. And by learning the D100 I was also in most
ways learning the n80 which shoots film and that was where the D100 body
mainly came from.
