    Best 35mm Camera ever made!

    I am sure I will get a lot of different responses from this. I was at a local camera store and the owner and I were talking about the Nikon F5 and he said that he thought it was the best 35mm camera ever made. I would agree what would you think.

    Nikon F, Nikon F2, Leicaflexes (pre "R" series). Leica M2/M3/M4, Nikon rangefinders, others.
    The all mechanical cameras without electronics can be repaired as long as someone is around to make parts. The electronics in other cameras will eventually crapout, and when replacement parts are no longer available it's bye-bye to that camera.

    Mechanical 35mm SLR? Nikon F2. Rangefinder - Pick a Leica. Electronic SLR- Im biased as I LOVE my F5 (removable prism, various focus screens, etc. all of which I use), but the Minolta 9ti is amazing too. My only gripe with the F5 is the Focus sensor colors. Black was a bad choice.

    The best 35mm camera ever made is whichever one works for a particular individual, not a specific brand. For me, it's whatever one I have in hand when oppertunity arises, and I get the shot. I refuse to fall into the "my camera is better than yours" claptrap.

    +1. The best camera for the shot is the one you have with you.

    What exactly do you mean by "best"?
