    Hey guys, Nikon made some really nice rangefinders cameras, too.

    I have the F and a Nikkormat Ftn. That takes care of 35mm for the rest of my life.

    Unless a good deal on an F2 comes along........or a nice rangefinder......

    My Nikon journey:

    FM10. My very first camera, it would still be my main body if it didn't get stolen in LA.

    After I lost the FM10, I got an N75; I loved that camera. It's pretty much 100% plastic so it can get wet! It also has the shortest rewind speed of any Nikon which is cool. I dropped it out of the car and it broke, then I took it apart for fun.

    After I lost the N75, I got an F4 with the MD20 and an E screen on ebay; it should have been listed as a parts camera because hardly anything worked. I used it for years anyway and took some of my favorite photos with it. I shot my own wedding with it with TMax 400 and a 50mm f/1.8D. My photos were better than the ones taken by the photographer we hired; she shot with a D70, JPEGs only, and set to the wrong white balance setting. Anyway, the F4 eventually stopped advancing the film properly which made it unusable. I still have it and enjoy fiddling with it occasionally.

    After I lost the F4, I got an N80 from KEH. It had this weird electrical problem that made it forget it had film in it and it would advance three frames every time I turned it on thinking I just loaded it even when I didn't. I sent it to Mack twice to get it fixed and it came back both times completely unfixed even though they said they fixed it. I hate Mack. I still have this camera if somebody wants it.

    After that I got an FM2n. I immediately put an E3 screen in and got an MD12 for it. I never really clicked with this camera and I'm considering offering it for trade. It's not a bad camera at all, but it doesn't fit me for some reason. I had a local shop refoam it but they're assholes, stupid and they didn't do it right. They charged me something like $200. I hate that place.

    To supplement my FM2n, I got an F2S. I've got P, G2 and E screens but use the E exclusively. It's got an MD1 which is my very favorite photo accessory I've ever had. I sent the body and prism to Sover Wong to have it overhauled, and then I sent it back to him because it got dropped by someone right after I got it back the first time. Sover Wong is the best; I can't express how great he is to work with, and his skills and knowledge are astounding. The F2 is the best camera for me that could ever be made.

    Along the way I also received a brand new D200 with a Katz Eye screen for my first anniversary. I was extremely excited about it at first, but I almost never use it anymore. Still a great camera, but I prefer film.

    My first Nikon was the FE, I now have four of them (all chrome). Plus the F100. Had the N80 for a while, but sold it to buy the F100. I've tried different Nikons over the years but have found that I really miss having the FE in my hands so I've never felt the need to buy any others.

    Nikkormat FT, FS, FTn, FT2, FT3, EL, ELw, EL2 (Nikon)

    Did I miss any? That's 42. Some would say it's the answer...

    EDIT: forgot the F100. So, 43. Some of these models are nearly identical, though.
    And that seems to answer the OP's question!

    5. 2x F4, 2x F100 and D700. Resisting the temptation to get an F6 or maybe an F5. Logical brain says 'Don't need..."; Non-logical brain says 'WAAAANT NOWWWW!!!!'
    Mamiya 645 Super | Nikon F4/F100/FM2n | Minolta Maxxum 9/Dynax 7/X-700/X-500/XD7/SRT-101 | Pentax Spotmatic | Canonet QL 19 (GII) | and a whole bunch of glass
