What's the 5N have or do that the F3 doesn't?

things in cameras are constantly changing - todays entry level camera may very well be the equal or even better than an older higher level camera, but as soon as the new higher level camera comes out the lower one will fall back behind again. this cycle will always repeat.

the f3 may beat the 5n for now, but in a few months when the f5 comes out it will jump back in front

its the nature of electronics - and if you always have to own the one in front - - - I hope you have allot of money

According to DPR's preview the F3 sits below the 5N but it reads like the F3 matches the 5N everywhere. What's sets the 5N apart? (well, other than ability to angle the LCD down...)
