    It's a beast but I've become rather attached to my Nikon F5. What a wonderful piece of work it is. When used the precision becomes apparent and while very technically sophisticated it can still be operated manually and access to the large amount of Nikon F mount lenses is a huge plus. Besides it makes a great personal defense weapon should the need arise.

    Canon A-1. I've had one since 1981.

    Also enjoy the Canon élan 7e. Am I the only one who likes the eye control function?

    I rarely use 35mm but my favorite is my Nikon FM2. Simple, compact, unimposing clean lines and accepts a wide variety of Nikon lenses. My first slr was a Voigtlander Bessamatic that I bought in a pawn shop with two lenses in 1963 for $50. all in mint condition. I should have kept it but sold it a few years later because of the need for a macro (1:1) lens capability.

    I too really like the eye control focus function - on both my 7e and IIe.

    It is my understanding, however, that it doesn't work for everyone, and was thus a nightmare for retailers.

    That's very true Matt, I used to sell them and some customers just couldn't use them, I understand that in fact they were a development of the sight switches that helicopter gunship pilots used to aim and fire their guns in Vietnam.

    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but I like how the 110's pocket's look.

    Hasselblad X-Pan (I wish I could afford to own one- shot some of my favorite pictures of all time with a borrowed copy).

    My "modern" film camera is an EOS-3. I enjoy using it, the eye control focus works well for me. I also like the eye controlled DOF. The drawback is that ready to go, its a bit heavy. My best lenses are for this camera. For a light weight camera I enjoy using, probably my OM-1, there is something about this camera that keeps me fond of it. I recently picked up an FE2 which I'm finding I also like using. I find its metering system interesting to use. All will take images as good as the effort I choose to put into it.
