    I don't have an alternative SLR as I usually use a rangefinder, but I have been having great fun today with my Canon EOS 50e (with very cheap Agfaphoto Vista 200, only £1.00 per cassette).

    I'd have to say "currently" to any answer I give, as I have Canon (EOS and FD), Nikon (AF and manual), Minolta MD and autofocus, Pentax K both AF and manual, Olympus OM, Yashica (AF and manual), Mamiya, Fujica and several M42 mount 35mm SLRs in my collection. I trot out whatever suits my fancy that day. These things are dirt cheap now, mostly, so I end up with multiples sometimes. I have five Canon AE-1's somehow. They all work. My Yashica's have grown to 6 somehow, and not one of them is a lemon - though the FR-II needs a bit of love to return to glory.

    I guess I have no primary system, so no alternate system. Excepting Canon's T-90, Fujica's AX-3, and any Pentax ME-ish camera, I haven't found fault with any brand or body.

    Nikon 1st camera, Nikon 2nd camera, but I do have a few Ricohs that I've been given over the years that impressed me and use them when I worry for the safety of my gear

    I don't want to own several different manufacturers equipment, all I want is all my lenses to fit and work correctly on all my S.L.R. body's.

    Well, Olympus OM is my regular platform but I have always been enraptured by half frame cameras so I shoot a Pen F quite a bit.

    I do have 3 other SLR brands. A Sears (Ricoh KR5) with a 50 f2, bought because it was only $5, and a Fujica ST605n body purchased because I had picked up a Super Tak 50 1.4 and 135 f3.5 cheap and I needed a M42 body to mount them on. The third one was a gifted but inoperative Konica FS1 with 28 f3.5, 50 f1.4 and 80~200 f4.5 Konica lenses. I replaced a missing contact in the battery compartment with a bit of shim brass and it works fine now.

    Of the three I like the Fujica best although the shutter seems loud to me.

    To be honest, I've never loaded a roll in the Konica, just too much going on.

    Well I'm a Canon guy, my backup to my EOS 1V is my AE-1 FD mount camera...

    My "other" SLR is a Mamiya RZ67 medium format SLR...

    Those are the only SLR's I bother with. The best

    I have several SLR systems. Lately, my favorite "other" camera is a Minolta XD 11. I really like using it with the compact 45/2.

    I like how it handles. I think its size is just about perfect for my hands. And I think the controls are intelligently laid out. The one thing that it lacks is an On-Off switch, so you always have to be careful that there isn't anything resting on top of the camera, specifically the shutter release.



    I reskinned it using material from Aki-Asahi. I was going to use the other guy in the U.S., but I actually wanted to receive my order.

    The Nikons and Canons are my "other" cameras. For SLR, I prefer the screw-mount Yashica and Pentax cameras. But I use rangefinders, scale focus, or point and shoot cameras more than SLR.

    I don't have another SLR. Well, I do have some M42 toys but I never really use them. The only non-Nikon 35mm gear I have and use is the Hexar AF, but it's not and can't be a replacement for my F3/F100. And it's not an SLR.
