Greetings to all, I am thinking of replacing my F801s (8008sin USA), bought in 1991, with a used F100. I have a lot of fine prime AIS manual lenses which can be used on it (just as I use them on the 801s) as well as some AF lenses, which I plan to get more of. I believe that the F100 first appeared in 1999? I would like to find a fairly recent example which would see me out - as people are now beginning to last longer even than some cameras. Can any kind soul please point me to a website where I can find F100 serial numbers year by year, so that I can know how old any prospect is? (Dear old Google, for once, did not seem to know). And are there any special watchpoints for used F100s?

Nikon didn´t give a special number or designation to the viewfinders for the Nikon F. Most of the following viewfinders did - however - receive a serial number. Some viewfinders (and viewfinder focusing screens) of the Nikon F and Nikon F2 are interchangeable.
I shall be financing this by selling my nearly mint F3HP -the finest manual camera ever - but not the best one for a senior citizen. Thank you for reading this. All advice gratefully received. James Suffolk, near the North Sea,UK.

Shoot through your glasses if you have astigmatism or anything that cant be corrected with a simple diopter eyepiece. Depending on your facial structure you should find shooting with the DE-3 finder, F3HP or perhaps even with the DE-2, F3 easy. The DE-2, F3 offers a slightly bigger image for easier focusing. Many eye glass wearers have a strong preference for the DE-3, F3HP.
Im not a senior citizen yet and luckily have 20/15 vision through my glasses though its not so good without due to astigmatism. The quality of the exam and the quality of the glasses can make a big difference so if you have not had your eyes checked in a few years do so. If you are cool with the weight of the F5 it has a focus screen and viewfinder that is slightly better suited to manual focus and the electronic rangefinder is great. The display in the F5 is a red/green/red LED display. The F100 has a green/green/green LCD display that with practice can be used with peripheral vision. 600 000 midi torrent download.
The F5 weighs 4g more than the F3 and 40g less than the F3HP when the F3(s) are sporting an MD-4 Motor Drive. The F3 has major advantages if you do macro. Thats advantages over the F100 and some also over the F5.
For a casual hike the F100 is a pleasure as it weighs just 861g with a 1 nylon strap and lithium batteries. Sometimes the weight of an F3 with MD-4, F5 or D2H/D2X is desirable. Its nice to have a choice.
Some of us hate so see people sell their F3 but if its absolutely necessary. Regards, Dave Hartman. Many thanks to all for wise and useful advice and information. Especially about the F3HP, as well as the F100 serial numbers. I know it makes sense to keep it.
Just needed someone to remind me. Think I'll keep it, get the F100 too, and sell the F801s instead. Come to think of it, I might keep that too, as it won't contribute very much to buying the F100.

The F100, despite it's resemblance to the F5, is *not* a Nikon professional body. --Dave Lee This is debatable, however my favorite statement on this topic is, An MB-15 booster no more makes the F100 into an F5 than a choice piece of road kill makes a coyote into a wolf. Keep in mind that the wolf became all but extinct in the lower 48 states (United States) while the coyote flourished in much of its ancient habitat. There seems to be a parallel here as the F5 is discontinued and the F100 is still in the catalog. Were it up to me I would have specified a titanium back for both and better sealing for the F100. Anyway the F100 is a survivor. I dont consider the F100 on par with the professional F-Series Nikons but I do consider it a professional and a serious or true amateur body. Many professionals carried the F100 as a backup to the F5 and many carried only F100(s). My F100 came with the improved rewind fork.
