    Sticking with the theme of the thread again, for 35mm it's simple. Without a doubt, the Contax G2 and the 21mm. Sure there are plenty of shots I'd have to pass on because it's TOO wide, but I've also seen where when traveling, 70% of my shots in a day were made with that lens, which translates into 2+ rolls per day. For film, it used to be Fuji Reala - now it's Ektar 100.

    Absolutely amazing! I posted the original challenge here 5 years ago! Interesting thing is that now I'm torn between my original choice of a Nikon F3HP/MD4 with 35mm 2.0 AIS and my Nikon F with FTN metered prism/ 50mm 1.4 AIS. While the focal length is different, the 50 seems to have been created for the F. The more I use my old F, the more I love it! I sometimes feel like I'm cheating on my F3HP when I use my old F!

    Easy for me. Bessa R3M and Nokton 40/1.4. I would substitute the flash for my digisix. I only own two cameras and two lenses. The Bessa and a Mamiya C220 with 80/2.8 and I am contemplating finding a good home for the Mamiya as I hardly use it and haven't for months.

    Big difference in film size though. The C220 is a classic and venerable workhorse. My wedding was shot with a C220 many years ago!

    I agree. My C220 is also in great shape and it's an awesome camera. I also have a paramender for it, but I almost feel like it is going to waste sitting around while I use my Bessa. I have only contemplated it, it's not for sale yet .

    I've grown to enjoy street shooting and I love being able to stick my R3M, digisix, a couple rolls of film, two filters, some bottles of water, and sandwich in my F-2 and be able to carry it around for hours or a whole day at a time without any problem.

    I will go with OM-1 and a 35mm zuiko.
    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    Tempting to say my Nikon F2AS with 50mm f2 chrome nose Nikkor but for sheer flexibility, lightness and the recent CLA it would have to be the Canon A-1 with 50mm f1.4. Program, AP, SP and meterless manual modes for my sunny 16 moments.

    Today it would be Canon EOS 1V with 24-70mm f2.8L lens... And Arista EDU Ultra 400 in XTOL.
    Tomorrow it could be a different camera.

    Doing this, except I'm using two lenses. A 35mm rangefinder, with a 35mm and a 50mm lens.
    Packed away the Hassey.
    Packed away the Pentax.
    Packed away the pinhole.
    Packed away the 5x7.
    For one year.

    Helps me focus on the pictures instead of the camera, and THAT is a good thing.
