    Ricoh KR 5 models, and their clones (think Sears KS 500). Fijica ST 605n. Bought both for $25 and the Ricoh/Sears included the standard 50mm f2 lens.

    I've picked up 3 Canon EOS 300's, and 1 Elan II, for an average price of about $10 each, in excellent condition. I have OM-1's and Olympus glass, so I use them on the Canons with adapters, and it works perfectly. When a Canon body dies, (only 1 in 4 years), it goes into a junk drawer, and I buy another 1 or 2. CR2 batteries are cheap in bulk. A good, cheap, LIGHT, setup.

    I'd vote for the Canon T70 if you are an ordinary amateur as they go for as little as £10. Out of my sixteen cameras from MTL3 to T90 it's the one I use most as for that price I don't worry if it was stolen, dropped, or ruined on a sandy beach with salt spray esp on holiday.

    I just bought a Canon EOS 650 for £4.50. No lens but I already have several EOS lenses.

    I like the N75 and N80, I also have battery grips for them so I can run them off of AA batteries.

    OM-10/20 and probably the 30 and 40 too, these cameras are super common, especially the first two and very damn cheap. I usually get them for 20-30 dollar with the 50 1.8 MIJ and sometimes even databacks and whatnot. They're good working horses, image quality (of course) on par with the OM-1/2/3/4, OM-20 has aperture priority AE and full manual controls, whilst the OM-10 needs the manual adapter for the latter. Real bargain!

    Pentax K1000. Built like a tank, last you a lifetime and great value for money.

    The best bargain is the one you use. So, my F2, and for macro, my K1000, because I scored macro stuff with it.

    ^Same here: both my F75 and F80 (N75 and N80 for you) have the battery packs. And the MB-18 for the F75 gives you a nice shutter button. One thing that makes me enjoy more the F75 over the F80 is the fact that I shoot most of the time in A mode, so the main dial on the back is used to change apertures, while the F80 always uses the dial on the front for the same: not as convenient as on the F75.
    As a curiosity both cameras, as well as the F65, are well furnished in the flash capabilities. Although the F75 and F65 don't have flash exposure compensation on the body, if you use a SB-26 or any flash with flash exposure compensation on it, they will use it. The earlier F401, F50 and F60 can't use Rear curtain synch or flash exposure compensation, even if the flash has them. They will also not communicate with the flash display, so you have to set the display to show correct information.
    The top of the range F4, F5 or even the F100 don't have flash exposure compensation on the body. They rely on the flash to have it. The F90 or the F90X don't have it either on the body, unless you use the fiddly MF-26 which has it.
    My cameras:
    Fed 2
    Zenit 11, 12XP
    Nikon F4, F4S, F401S, F601, F801, F801S, F50, F55, F60, F65, F70, F75, F80, F90, F90X, EL2, FE, FM, FG, FG-20, EM
