I had a pentax ME that I left some film in for too long and it corroded out the inside.

I have, or had a couple ME's (I gave one to a friend that got ripped off for his gear, along with a couple lenses.).
I know you're not supposed to store film in the camera, but never heard of it corroding the inside before. That had to SUCK! Sorry to hear about this.

Yep. I still have one trusty F5 (am selling one) and I have access to several old film body's if I need 'em. I will probably do a few weddings with film this year, because some clients are still under misconceptions about film vs digital. I don't try to argue - I just want the buisness.....Most will be digital though with D100's.
I still like shooting slides and projecting them. and of course I do and will enjoy my B&W lab untill film is discontinued.

I bought my F100 after going through two digital SLR's (E-10, and curently D100). I love the autofocus on the F100 as compared to the D100, but sometimes I find myself reaching for that non-existant display button on the back of the F100 :hs Anyways, now that we got a new film scanner in the studio I work at, film will get the digital finesse it deserves ;)
