I went and upgraded my film body to one of the best Nikons ever made. The F100 was the last pro-sumer film body to hit the streets and it is smooth as silk.
Rock solid, all the metering you'd every want and none of the frills, my preferred mode is manual everything with spot metering. From the giant viewfinder with fantastic diopter correction to the rubberized metal body that just feels good in your hands this is a pleasure to work with.
Shutter lag is a thing of the distant past, noise is kept down, controls are where my fingers are anyway and the whole thing is a heavy as a brick.
Shooting film has never been this much fun. See the picture of a waterfall in Yunnan.
