First a hello to all APUG members. Well a long story short, im moving to film.. I own a 7D a a100 and an a350 with various Minolta glass and was recently looking to move to Full Frame digital. What can I say, my head hurts! after hours spent researching and testing some of these cameras i was not impressed to say the least, First by the prices! Secondly the fact that in maybe 1 month im going to be out dated and out done by the next model. This sickens me and i have decided to move to a market which i think would suit me better. Now, I have always had a soft spot for film but have never known where to start,brace yourselves........ I have never shot film... I am looking for a nice 35mm camera I think the most important thing is it has to be fun to use, and from what I hear from film users most are. I have been looking though these forums abit and the Nikon F5 seems like a very respectable camera and also has lots of features I might be familiar with, I think this era of camera would suit me better than going back to the likes of SRT's etc BUT I am welcoming all your suggestions. The fact that I own a-mount lenses need not come into this as I will be selling all my current gear (bar my a100 and 50 1.4) to fund my film purchase. I am looking forward to your replies PS: it is so nice to find a camera forum that isnt one brand based and have all the "bitchyness" (Canon or nothing, 21 megapixels... is that it! etc etc) of some of the other forums (digital I might add) that I have been reading.
