    :-) For the same reason why I don't own any more F3's. Didn't like the "+-". Much prefer the "+0-" of the F2SB/AS and FM/FM2 series cameras.

    That 15/5.6 QD-C lens is quite rare...

    Oh, did add another off-topic Nikon SLR body (hey, free camera), and am about to swap my F4s for my nineteenth F4s. Found one that's in better condition and newer.

    I walked into a gallery/workshop/digital&film non-profit place on Saturday and discovered they were having a rummage sale. It was pretty well picked over by time I got there, but there were two quite usable 5x7 film holders. Now to get my 5x7 back fitted to my whole plate camera . . . it never ends.

    I just wish the F3's LCD wasn't so damn small! The numbers are small, and the those plus and minus signs are half that. Makes it harder to use, as I have to look right at them to discern what the readout is telling me. Meanwhile, Sasquatch just disappeared back into the forest!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I'm pretty much fine on GAS since I've purchased my Konica Hexar. That's the last camera I really need for now. I'm in no rush to get anything else anymore, but there is still some cameras I wouldn't mind eventually getting. But if I don't, no big deal either. If the opportunity arises, then great, if not, I'm not going to lose sleep over it. But, anyways, here's a list of some cameras I wouldn't mind picking up:

    - Olympus Trip 35 or XA or Canonet QL17
    - Voigtlander Bessa (not sure which make) or Leica M6/M7 (yeah right) or Hexar RF
    - Nikon F
    - Nikkormat FTN
    - Nikon FE/FE2/FG/similar
    - Nikon S rangefinder
    - Yashica T4
    - Yashica Mat 124(g) or Rolleicord or maybe Ricoh Diacord
    - Mamiya Rb67 or Hasselblad 500c/m or similar
    - Fuji X100(s)
    - Ricoh GR1v
    - Ricoh GRDIV
    - Nikon D600 (yeah right)

    I finally gave in and picked up a Yashica T4 Super D which will be used on an upcoming road trip.

    This makes me feel really good about my small kit. It can do everything thing that I need it to do.

    I am on the side that hates to have gear just sitting around, I feel wasteful.

    I've lately been acquiring oddball P&S bridge cameras. Ricoh Mirai, Fujifilm Discovery 3000, Chinon Genesis III, Olympus IS-3, Olympus AZ-330...

    Somebody just shoot me.

    I was handed a Leica R3 of unknown functionality a little while ago. Popped some batteries in it, the meter responded and the shutter fired on all speeds. I was able to borrow a lens for it to prove the meter was in good working order. Now I'm getting the fidget to get a lens of my own so I can use the thing, but common sense is resisting that urge, as the lenses for it are even more ridiculously expensive than the lenses for my Contax RTS III. Oh, and it needs new light seals around the door... thinking of which, anyone have a good source for them they can recommend?

    I don't want or need any cameras I've only bought two in the last twenty odd years, the only things on my G.A.S list are a power winder FN for my Canon F1N AE's, and a Garry Fong collapsable light sphere for my Canon 300TL speedlight.
