Hi all. I'm the happy owner of an F5 and a D700, with a selection of lenses from AI to G. I'd quite like to pick up a more lightweight body to use as a walkaround device, when I want to trade the performance of the F5 and D700 for less weight, preserving as much compatibility as possible. Especially, some form of metering with AI lenses, autofocus with both AF and AF-S lenses, aperture control on G lenses. I lean towards film, but I'm not ruling out a digital solution. Nikon doesn't appear to have made anything light that will do this. The F6 and F100 work everything, but are still quite hefty. Likewise the D200/D300/D300x (and, I suspect, Fuji DSLRs), but obviously with a cropped FoV. These aren't enough lighter than my F5 (at least with lithiium batteries) or D700 to justify buying one; I'm looking for something in the weight category of the F75 or Eos 500 (or, upper limit, D40). My options seem to be: F75 + an external meter for AI lenses. F70, but lose VR and aperture control on G lenses. D70 + an external meter for AI lenses. (Heavier than I'd like, cropped sensor, although the 1/500 flash sync and IR sensitivity appeal to me). Put a novoflex adaptor on the Eos 500 I already own, and give up on autofocus. My understanding is that third-party F-mount bodies like the Phenix probably won't allow G aperture control - but I've not heard anything recent about third party bodies for a while. I think I fall into a hole in Nikon's historical product line-up; it seems to have been assumed that a premium feature such a wide lens compatibility must be paired with a body you can use as a hammer. Is there an option that I'm missing?
