    I bought a Nikon F6 shortly after it came out - abut a year ago I think?

    I bought an F100 back in 1999 when my Nikon FA began to act up. Turns out the FA just needed a good cleaning, and is still working to this day. But I use the F100 95% of the time anyway.

    I bought a new Leica M7 last year from Classic Cameras in London and traded in a Leica M6TTL bought in 2002.
    Both bought to satisfy a lifelong ambishion to own these fine examples of photographic engineering.

    I've purchased only two cameras new. The first was in 1985--a Ricoh KR-30sp which is still a faithful companion. Then in 1999, I believe, I purchased a Canon Elan II and a few lenses. I loved the Canon, but I lost the whole kit in a flash flood. That was my one and only foray into a "high tech" system. With the exception of a Pentax zx-5n, my cameras in use tend to be mechanical. The ZX-5n is a beautiful camera, but I tend to use manual focus lenses on it.

    Only my first camera -- a Pentax K1000 back in 1987. Unfortunately I managed to wear it out fairly quickly (rewind knob) and traded it in for a used Minolta SRT-200 in 1989, which was used heavily, shelved for most of 15 years, and is back in action now.

    2004: Nikon N65 for my graduation trip to Europe. It was worth it, the thing takes abuse nicely---like when I forget its in a backpack and drop the whole thing to the floor.

    I forgot to mention the new Vivitar Mariner 35mm compact camera, complete with underwater housing and bright yellow plastic housing.

    Got it from Aldi, just before Christmas 4 weeks ago, cost $19.95.

    I was going to say "never", since all of my SLR's were used. (Currently have 9 that work and a couple of "doorstops".)

    But then I remembered that I bought a Pentax "IQZoom928" (point and shoot) several years ago. And on the recomendation of my mother-in-law, of all people.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    I hate to say it, but my last new camera was the Nikon D2X. But before that it was the Hasselblad 503CW. My next camera will be a new 4x5. So I don't feel too guilty about it.

    My last new 35mm film SLR was a second Nikon F4e in university. I don't even remember in what year I bought that camera.
