    Nikon FM3a with 45/2.8p lens 3 weeks ago.

    After following this forum for a couple of months you all inspired me to return the fully automatic plastic thingie
    I had borrowed from a friend of mine and got myself something a little more manual.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I bought the new Zeiss Ikon a couple of months ago. Last year, a Rollei P&S. In 2003, the Hasselblad XPan and right before that the Rollei 35 RF. In 2002, a little Leica P&S for my wife. In 2001, another Rollei P&S. In 2000, a Nikon Pronea S (APS!). Then go all the way back to 1983 for a Rollei 35S (new).

    In the meantime, four digitals -- of which only one continues to work correctly. Well, I guess the old 0.3MP Epson works but why bother. The digital is great when I'm overhauling a camera -- snap some photos if reassembly becomes tricky.

    I have purchased more used 35mm cameras than new. All of my medium and large format camera purchases were used. The following are the only 35mm cameras that I purchased brand new from a dealer:

    1. Miranda Sensorex (1967 from Altmans in Chicago, Illinois)
    2. Nikon F2 (l971 from Fairchild Camera in Champaign, Illinois)
    3. Nikon F3 (sometime in the 1980s from 7th Street Camera in Fort Worth, Texas)
    4. Nikon F2 titanium (purchased two sometime in the 1980s; one from 7th Street Camera in Fort Worth, Texas and the other from B&H in New York)
    5. Nikon EM (purchased sometime in the 1980s from a dealer in Chicago or Texas)
    6. Underwater 35mm camera (2005 from Wal-Mart)

    Of the six, the F2 I bought in 1971 and the underwater camera are the only ones I am still using.

    If by "new" you mean "new to me" then: yesterday. If by new you mean factory new, 2000.

    The poll actually specifies "35mm camera". Digital are excluded.

    However, the poll lacks the case "never". I've never bought anything new, always used equipment. Which are the poll results so far?

    My answer has changed - it is now "A Nikon FM3a yesterday." I am a dyed-in-the-wool Pentax user (from back in the 60s, when Pentax was a serious pro brand) and usually have a Leica-type camera around too (at present Bessa T and L), although I avoid genuine Leicas after having been gouged by Leica UK's service department. I have also owned many Nikons sporadically. Be that as it may, I just could not let Nikon film cameras (virtually) disappear from the market without buying one for posterity (together with a mint 50 mm f1.4). I immediately loaded the camera with HP5+ and put in in the mini backpack I have with me all the time, with the resolve to do some PJ-style work. The FM3a seems to have all the good stuff that I am looking for (toughness, ability to keep going without battery, but also at least one AE program - got to be quick with 35!).

    A Sexy Red FED 5V directly from a dealer in Kiev!!! Granted, the camera was built in 1994, but it was 'brand new in the box'!

    Hey Marco, when are you inviting us all to Italy for some wine and cooking?

    Yes I realized that "D" was not an option, nor is it really 35mm, but it was too late to edit my post so it stood. Oh well.
