Reading an ad in the UK magazine "Outdoor Photography", Warehouse Express had a price for the Nikon F5 at £1599, and the F5 Pro at £1999. The only thing that I could think of were the possible additions of the Multi-Control Back MF-28, and/or the MN-30 NiMH battery unit and MH-30 charger. Or is there a special F5 not generally known in the US? For what it is worth, this is a pretty nice magazine at about US$5 a copy when acquired as a two year subscription. It is a glossy, with many articles and few ads. It has been out for four years now so it looks as though it will survive.
