    I own 2 olympus 35mm slrs.

    The OM1 and the OM2n. And I love them. Along with the zuiko lenses, it fits really well with how i use it. Add in the robust built and sexy design, you cant go wrong.

    What I would like to have, an OM4Ti. I dunno why but it calls me everytime I come across it in shops. One day perhaps.

    Another would be the Nikon FM2 or FE and perhaps a Contax 139.

    The best 35mm design / favorite?? It has to be the Nikon F4. The F4 works with all F mount lenses Nikon has made from 1959 to today with a few limitations on the pre-AI and G lenses. It has a great grip and a very rugged build. I have the MB-20 and MB-21 grips so I can go small or I can go big with a vertical grip and 6 fps. It takes AA batteries that can be bought just about anywhere. Nice big viewfinder with lots of focus screen options. Matrix, center weighted, and spot metering. P,A,S, & M modes with a an extra P mode that keeps shutter speed high. All manual controls with dials and buttons, no menu settings that require referencing a handbook to tell what you are setting. And in my opinion it's a great looking design. You can shoot program exposure mode and autofocus or switch just as easily to manual focus and manual exposure with out incurring a disadvantage because the auto functionality exists on the camera.

    F100 and F6 are contenders here and more advanced, but to me if you take into account the ability to shoot pre-AI lenses unmodified and the whole menu thing from the F100........ I've never shot an F6 so I can't compare but I know it uses a non-standard type battery and can't shoot pre-Ai without modification. They have the control wheels too and I prefer the dial controls on the F4. I have to say overall the F4 wins it for me.

    You wouldn't think so, but this is a very easy camera to use. It is heavy and somewhat large, but the design is excellent. Because of the location of the shutter release, it is easy to take a portrait with it, although it does take a few extra moments.

    I have three favourites all of which I no longer have:

    Nikon F no metering but just felt like a real camera
    Olympus OM4Ti best metering of any camera I have owned
    Contax 159MM I loved the feel of this camera in use

    Nikon N2000. Cheap & ugly, but with a useful, easy-to-read meter display, built-in winder, and it takes 4 AAAs. Took me 8 yrs to wear a used one out, so I bought another used one(shooting 100 rolls/yr).

    F100 and/or FE. Both are superb for what I need. Although my Miranda F is a very fun, very predictable, stable workhorse that has taken its beatings and keeps on tuckin.

    But I do think that my all time favorite camera across all formats, brands, types and styles has to be the loaded one in my hand at the moment I want it.
