Default Nikon F2AS vs. F3 preference?

I just had my Trusty F2A stolen and was thinking of replacing it with
either a F2AS or an F3. From what I have seen on the net there seem to
be problems with the F2A meters which is why a direct replacement seems
like asking for trouble. The meter on the F2AS seems easier to read
than the F3's. I don't use a flash so flash related features are
irrelevant. The F3 feels awkward but after 22 years of using the F2A I
would not expect otherwise. Any thoughts in their respective vices and


They both have their merits for sure. However, the F2AS is hard to beat. As mentioned in this blog, they are solid. You could probably knock someone out with this weapon if you had to. I go back and forth with using two finders. The
DE-1 and the DP-12. That said I wish the F2 had the 80/20 meter sensitivity. That would be a huge plus...
