    I tend to avoid putting slide film in certain cameras. Mostly my SV, Spotmatic, KM and K1000 as the light metering on these just isn't accurate enough (they probably need a CLA but given it's only the meter that's out I'm not too bothered). I also try to rotate them as I know that long-term storage does cameras no favours - they need to be used. At present I have:

    KX loaded with 200ASA slide
    ME loaded with 200ASA colour negative (rescued roll, it was in an ME F which died with a shutter fault so I hope I've only lost the four frames or so).
    P30n with 200ASA colour negative
    SF7 with Ilford Delta 3200

    Next up will probably be the K2 with Delta 3200 and a couple of MXs with B&W and colour negative respectively. I only have one more roll of slide film left and the local shop has stopped selling it, given the extra hassle involved in non-process paid slide film this will probably be my final roll, so it'll go in something a bit special.

    I don't care. I mix and match. They all deliver great results.

    I only shoot black and white so no, I tend to stick to 400 for everything, both MF and 35mm, and my normal film of choice is Fomapan 400

    Nikon's matrix metering on film bodies like F100 or F5 works really well with slides but sometimes underexposes when using color negative or b&w. That could be one explanation why OP likes to use the F5 with slides.

    I have monochrome cameras (my Voigtlanders) and colour cameras (my Zeiss Ikons) but I have no idea why - it is just what I do. The one time I put slide film in my Voigtlander Vito B it was astoundingly good.

    I have a Rollei B35, and it only shoots HP5 in rolls of 24. The meter is a bit hit and miss, and HP5 has good exposure latitude, and the shorter rolls are a little easier on those little, old nylon gears. Other than that, the HP5 and PanF go into whatever is empty.

    My cameras are poly-amorous, the only exception is the 616 box brownie that only gets paper.
