    I'm loving B&W film and printing out my own pix and developing film. :run:

    Its fun.

    I'd like an old Nikon that will use my new Nikon lenses, at the bare minimum to just be able to mount up right.. I'm sure i wont get all the features.

    Your 17-35 2.8 DX lens will not give you good results on a 35mm body, Daniel.

    i use an old F-301, i think it was sold as the N2000 over in the states. Ebay bargain.

    you own a d200 right? i have a d200 and a f100 and i fucking LOVE my f100. it's like a d200 of film. the shots you get on it are amazing.

    and...do you have a 17-35 or a 17-55? i use a 17-35 f/2.8 on the f100 and the pictures i get from it are crazy sharp.

    i really really suggest the f100, especially cause you can get a really clean one for around 300 dollars on www.keh.com

    he has the 17-55 dx, it won't cover the entire film cell, he'll get black corners.
