The Nikon F5- A forgotten legend

Double button activations for everything, a self diagonastic shutter, matrix metering that can beat the crap out of any light meter and dozens of customizable options!

Yes, we are talking about the legendary Nikon F5, which is the last of the Fs from Nikon truly, for the F6 never really had any fan following here. Our Ed in Chief Ben has one. He will hand it over to his daughter, who in turn will give it to next of kin and the legend will continue!

Digital SLRs are in big time and are used by anyone. But attach a Nikon 80-200 F2.8 to an F5, point and autofocus. The precision, speed and feel with which it will hunt down your subject can leave you numb! Extremely hard to find these anymore, but if you do get your hands on one, remember, its the best film camera your money can buy!

A true legend. I can't say enough by its picture quality and craftsmanship. A MINT condition F5 is rare on the market. So if someone finds one, its a steal.

Right said anon! There is nothing that comes close to the feeling of holding an F5.
