I use a couple of F90X bodies, usually loaded with 100/400 ISO film. I carry at least one F90X along with a Nikon D90 digital. The F90X is a superb tool and when fitted with the MF-26 multi function back the camera will reward you with the ability to handle most photographic situations. Autofocus is easily quick enough for action shots and focus tracking works well. Controls are laid out in a useful manner, with the exception of the AE/AF lock slider that even today Nikon insist on placing right against your nose, making it difficult to hold the shutter button and lock exposure simultaneously (although other options are available). The meter renders well exposed images and TTL flash is usually spot on. The body takes a range older lenses and new AFS, but VR is available. I really enjoy using this camera and current prices are ridiculously low for such a fine piece of Nikon tech.
I own and use an F4 also but the F90X used much more frequently. If you are looking for a well built film camera I would certainly recommend this one.
