    Your favorite 'other' slr.

    I've only been a member of APUG for slightly more than a year and I don't know if this has been discussed, so...

    Let's say you are a Nikon guy or a Minolta gal, you absolutely love the brand, BUT you have another slr from another manufacturer that you would never part with.

    I've used a lot of slr brands but I would have to categorize myself as a Pentaxian, I just really like their slrs especially the Spotmatics up to the LX. However, I have a Nikkormat FTN that I really like and I can't see myself ever parting with. Not only is it a great camera but I can see it being very handy using it against muggers.

    Well, I'm a Nikon gal, ever since I got my first FE, and I don't think I would ever change for 35mm. But I do use a Bronica SQAi -- does it count if it's a different format? I just love the square, and it's often hard for me to choose over one or the other when I come across different scenes that I like.

    In 35mm, I'm a long-time Canon user (could just as well have turned out a Nikon or Contax user, but I started with Canon, and it made sense not to switch), but my favorite other SLR is my 5x7" Press Graflex.

    I initially meant just 35mm (my bad), but for other formats, I just got a 2 1/4 Kowa SixMM slr, that lens is just bitingly sharp.

    But I would like to hear what other 35mm brands people like.

    I'm a long time Nikon enthusiast. I used to have a Minolta X700 that I really enjoyed. I recently purchased a Canon A1 and it is wonderful. Used a lot of Canon cameras back in the 70s.

    All my 35mm SLR s are Canon FD, I rationalized my equipment about twenty five years ago, and stuck to one system ever since.

    I am a current Nikon user but still have several old Minolta cameras. I have X700, X370, and several Minolta lenses.

    Nikon, ever since my first FM2n, Titanium Shutter. That was my first "real" camera - purchased brand new on the recommendation of Terry Ernst, owner of Ernst Camera Shoppe in Port Huron, MI. He is still in business, still processing film for me. This carried over into my dSLRs as well. I do consider getting a K1000 every so often, some good friends of mine had these way back when and really liked them.

    It is amazing how your first purchase can so influence your subsequent purchases, even if you didn't accumulate an extensive accessory collection. Always been happy with Nikon SLRs, never found a reason to consider others.

    I shoot Nikon and Pentax 35mm.

    Nikon is my favorite because of its larger number of lenses and accessories.

    Pentax is my favorite “other” SLR because of its small size and weight.
