    I had a silver Nikon FG with a 50mm 1.8 Series E lens on it. It also had a winder. Had some Rollei Retro 80s in it. I travel frequently to Toronto from Detroit for business. I know I was toting it around recently but, now can't find it.

    Any ideas??

    Good thought. I stayed in Guelph recently. I called the Hampton Inn but, they said I'd have to call back tomorrow because something that large might be with maid service: Call back between Noon and 4pm.

    Note for the future. Tie a cell phone to it and when you miss place it just call the number.

    Hope you find it the FG is my favorite slr. So far I have been lucky, have only lost lens caps but have dropped and broken two cameras.

    I once "lost" my Olympus Pen F. After a frantic 3 days it turned up in my dresser bottom drawer. I didn't remember putting it there but the way my mind works......

    It's in the last place you left it. Now you just need to remember where you where when you set it down.Were it me, I'd be searching the fridge.

    I once lost my car & house keys for 2 days. Found them in the refrigerator. I was about 40 then. My dad had alzheimers, does this mean I do too?

    I am really fond of my FG - fab little camera.

    I have a silver Nikon FG with a 50mm 1.8 Series E lens on it. I might be willing to sell. It also has a winder.

    It might even have some Rollei Retro 80s in it.

    I picked it up the last time I was in Detroit. :grin:

    Look under the seats in your car. That's usually where my stuff migrates to.

    I once lost my mobile phone, I found it two weeks later at the bottom of my freezer, it had dropped out of my top pocket as I leaned in to retrieve some meat. After careful defrosting it was fine.
    I'm still looking for my reading glasses!
