I have a Canon F-1N/high speed motor drive and a Nikon N80 autofocus. The
Canon has literally gone around the world, been dropped, and has had a lot
of rolls through it. However, today's autofocus cameras have so many more
functions built in than the F-1N could ever accomplish with accessories.
With the N80, I can go from matrix metering to center weighted to spot by
pushing one button and turning a dial. With the Canon, you need to slide the
prism off, pry the focusing screen off with a small knife, put the camera in
your lap while you do the switch-a-roo. Not exactly fast.
Having said that, no, I'm not selling my F-1N.
