The interview with Tomohisa Ikeno about the thoughts behind the F6 is still as valid as they were in 2004, when the camera was launched. It's interesting reading, since it answers many of the questions around film vs. digital, film cameras in general and the F6 in particular that are discussed every day on photography and camera forums around the world.
Since I have the F6, and use it almost daily, I can confirm that all he says still holds water. That's impressive in a market where digital camera models are becoming "obsolete" within a couple of years. I have tried every single Nikon pro model since the F6, and I can safely say that none better the ergonomics of their film brother.
Food for thought in a world that is spinning increasingly fast.
