    Nikkormat FTN, bought new with 50/1.4 and 200/4. I got a 105/2.5 as soon as I'd accumulated the money.

    Regrets? Just one. Perhaps I should have got a 55/3.5 MicroNikkor instead of the 50/1.4. After I got a 55/3.5 I hardly used the 50/1.4 for anything, eventually used it as a down payment on a 24/2.8. But until I got the MicroNikkor I got good use from the 50/1.4.

    A Canon AE1-Program. I was 14 and bought the body while my uncle (photographer also) offered me the 70-210 zoom. I still have the body but sold the zoom and some other lenses to help acquiring the EOS3 I'm now using.

    Regrets ? I bought a cheap F1 a few years after that, but sold it a bit later. I'd LOVE to have a F1 again, simply for the metallic feel of it.

    Some kind of Ricoh rangefinder, and then an A-1. Both were stolen in a house burglary, and I used the insurance to purchase a New F-1, which I still use over twenty years later.

    A baby Rolleiflex which my father gave me on my 11th birthday. I wanted a Leica, with which he photographed me and my siblings at that time, but of course that was not to be.

    My first 35 was a Practiflex (M40x1 mount) that was always breaking down, followed closely by a Kowa SET-R2.

    Although I "started" with an Ansco TLR (620?) in the '50s, my first 35mm camera was a little Yashica rangefinder with a fixed 50mm lens that I bought in the mid '60s. Great little camera, but it soon gave way to a Pentax SLR, which in turn gave way to a Nikon.

    that was enouch for a new M started with a Kodak 35mm Motomatic. Scale focussing, built in light meter and a spring motor. My interst in photography started when my first child was born. Not too long after that I made my worst photography purchase..Alpa 6c beautifully made, wonderful lens and not at all reliable Enough $ for a new Leica M3 and more than enough for a new Nikon F.
