My First Nikon Autofocus
I love film cameras and bought a Nikon EM with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I then looked for a zoom lens for it and got a Sigma 28-105 zoom through eBay. The lens is autofocus and manual so I looked for a nice Nikon autofocus body and saw this on offer. I bought it and it is performing impeccably. It's real quality.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned

Ask yourself, Do you REALLY need that F5?
I had been wanting a Nikon film body too compliment my digital kit for some time but was having a hard choosing between an F3, F4, F100 or F5. I wasn't sure what to expect when I took a chance on a Nikon N8008, I read on-line reviews and although the general consensus was that it was a good camera in its day, I also read a lot about it being noisy, slow, plasticy and not very nice to hold but as it was silly cheap I thought, what the hell, would do as a spare if nothing else! Well, the day it arrived I was stunned, Yes it is a polycarbonate body and it feels it, but it doesn't feel cheap, even for an 80's plastic fantastic. This is obviously helped by the weight of it, 700g without batteries, you certainly know that it is in your hand! Personally, I like heavy cameras, when you put a heavy lens on, the extra weight is a godsend (I have an 80-200 2.8 and the camera balances it perfectly) As for noise, well, it isn't silent, but it isn't noisy either, what does hit you is the tone of the noise, the focus is not a refined noise, think cordless screwdriver, but then they are 20+ years old! The motordrive is also something that you get used to, but thats the point, you get used to them and they bother you less. Handling is great, the chunky grip does not feel as big as it looks, I dont have huge hands and I don't find it awkward at all. The controls are well laid out, and in some cases better than later Nikon's, Depth Of Field preview for example, is right where you want it, next to your middle finger, and is a nice mechanical type so you dont even need the camera turned on to use it! It is not perfect though, the lcd in the viewfinder can be tricky to see, you have to position your eye at the top of the finder and look down slightly, a note on the viewfinder, it is stunning in every other respect, extremely big and bright and as auto focus cameras go, it is one of the best to use in manual focus that I have come across. Battery life seems good so far, I have been using sanyo eneloop 2000mAh NI-MH rechargeables and, 20 rolls later, are still going strong! As for image quality, well depends what lens you put on as do all slr's, Stunning with the Nikon 80-200 f2.8, not so nice with a 35-80 f4-5.6 as you would expect. Metering, as usual I find Nikon's matrix metering has a tendency to over-expose for my taste, but that is an easy fix and personal preference, Spot metering is a very worthwhile addition, I have both The N8008 (US version of the F801) and the F801s (US version would be N8008s) and the spot meter is the only difference I can find between them. I also ended up going for the F100 and I won't lie, Of the 3 the F100 is a better camera in all but 3 respects, but bear in mind that the F100 is a much later development and I could have bought 10 801's for less! (as for the 3 respects? well the film status indicator on the F801 is a nice touch, the self timer is the most innovative (2 shot setting with a slight pause between shots) easy to use that I have ever seen (press the button spin the wheel to set the length), and the mechanical DOF is silky smooth (the electro-magnetic Depth Of Field preview on the f100 sounds like an AK47 going off!) The point is, when you get used to how the meter behaves, the end result matches the F100, and therefore an F5, it just does it in a much simpler and less refined way! If you care about what the camera does and not how it does it, then this is a camera for you. Overall, an excellent buy!!! Read full review

this has to be the most under rated camera in the world
this camera has most of the features found on the expensive cameras, you can pick one up for pennies, what a bargain. Just try one.
