    Written on: 21/02/2003 by 99tollap. (1 review written)

    After having a fully manual SLR for three years and mastering the basics of photography, I decided to get one of these second hand. After three months of getting used to the functions and handling, the camera has been a bit of a disappointment. The action and landscape photos are very clear with good colour modulation, this is helped by the spot on metering and autofocus, but the camera is bit disappointing in areas where the lighting is distorted or where there are lots of shades. The… Read Full Review

    Written on: 25/11/2001 by Nikon F Man. (1 review written)

    The nikon f5 was my first camera. Now after one year of usage and spending over 15,000 U.S. dollars, I feel like a million dollars when I look at the shots I have taken.
    I get respect when I show up at an event with my F5, F100, SB28, AF ED f2.8 / 80 200 and my AFS 300 f28. And of course, my nikon jacket and my shaved black head. No, I am not a pro, just a nikon man… Read Full Review

    Written on: 15/07/2001 by Rajhans Raut. (1 review written)

    I purchased this camera two years ago. This is a well-built Nikon. Auto focus is very fast and accurate.
    This camera has 3D-color matrix metering for examine scene color also for perfect exposure.
    But metering of F-5 and N90S works same for me. If you will purchase this camera remember that you are paying for build quality and features… Read Full Review

    Written on: 08/05/2000 by CyberPOP. (1 review written)

    F5 is one of my belove cameras. The RGB metering is very accurate -I almost never bracket at all (unless night shot). The selective AF control is one of the great design. The MLU shouldn't be a good point -in fact. Every camera at this price should have, unless it's a rangefinder.

    The bad points were said before. The grey (dark) AF is not a good idea for low-light. The spider-webbing was mentioned when it first came out, but my recent F5 also had. That's not a serious problem because… Read Full Review

    Written on: 06/05/2000 by Mel Gregory. (1 review written)

    I have owned this camera for about 3 months and have burned a lot of film in this time. The flash system is almost fool proof as is the 3D Matrix metering. It is a somewhat complex camera so a thorough reading of the manual is required as are frequent consulations with the manual when one forgets how a certain function works. This model is almost bulletproof and is much better in my opinion than the F4 and F3 both of which I owned prior to this camera. If I could rate this camera… Read Full Review
