I love my Nikon F75 SLR, it is easy to use, has many features, only reason I would upgrade would be to goto a digital SLR.

Pro: Excellent semi-pro camera covering almost everything you need for pro job too. Last one semi-pro "Made in JAPAN" and metal (!) body. Good old days... Old new stocks is a real bargain now- far better than any F/N 55 65 75, even 80 in some extend. Cons: missing detachable prism and using expensive Lithium batteries (although less than 1p per shot). A bit weak/light demanding (nowadays) AF meter. Discontinued production since 1996.

EXCELLENT PERFORMER , RELIABLE, WONDERFUL DTTL FLASH, GREAT FEEL, POOR DISPLAY/HANDLING ISSUES DISAPPEAR WITH TIME/EXPERIENCE. IT DOES EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK OF IT. NO DEPTH OF FIELD PREVIEW NOT AN ISSUE WITH EXPERIENCED PHOTOGRAPHER. EVEN THE AUTOFOCUS IS REASONABLE - AS FAST AS MY D70. BRILLIANT

This camera is a ROCKET.
I owned mine for the last 5 years. Solid and dependable. Full of options.
Full maual use. A bit tricky to memorize all the optons, but once you have them down this camera will do just about anything.
No off camera flash option. This may be a problem for studio work.
