So I have been checking out Film Bodies. I was looking for a film body that had manual focus assist like my D7000 has. i found the N90 has it.(>O<) which appears in the view finder. Besides the N90 are there any others. Like the F100 or F4 etc. Thanks

Pretty sure all auto focus SLR's have it, or certainly I've never noticed one that doesn't.

You can also put a focus screen in the F4 that has the focus aids like the MF bodies. The previous owner put a type P screen in mine and I really like it.

Some AF bodies have the <O> and some just have the O.
