    Well since this is suppose to be about which 35mm camera we use I won't bore you with all the other hardware I frustrate myself with.

    For 35mm it's Nikon all the way. Started off with Minolta but found the lenses to soft in the contrast department. Now before all you Minolta people start to flame me this was back in the early 70's. I sure they are perfectly wonderful lenses now.....

    Pretty much sold off most of my 35 gear as I very rarely ever use it anymore. I like sharp, grainless 11x14's and I don't care how much you paid for your voodoo 35 it just ain't gonna hold up to my MF or LF.

    What I do have left though is the following:

    Nikon Nikkormat FTN
    28mm
    35mm
    50mm
    135mm
    43-86mm
    35-70mm (piece of crap Tamron thingie)
    80-200
    500 mirror lens
    closeup tubes
    2X teleconverter
    10lbs of filters

    Now when I do use my Nikon, it is usually with the 35mm lens.

    I find my Blad is just as easy to pack around with 50mm, 80mm and 150mm lenses, 2 or 3 backs and the waist level finder.

    Now a special message for Aggie.

    GET OUT AND USE THE DARN THING!!!!!

    The few times I use 35mm, it's my Nikon F - usually with the Nikkor 35mm lens. When I use it, it's for street shooting - I figure I can use the camera as a weapon if someone bothers me.

    Woise choice!

    A long time ago I asked to a photo teacher which was the real difference between a Nikon F and a Spotmatic.

    "Both will take good photos, very hard to say which is better.
    Now, if someone tries to steal you Nikon, you grab it by the strap, hit the thief - and take a photo of it"

    Some of you guys are incredible. Do you really know what percent of use each camera sytem gets or are ya just guestimating. If you actually know the stats how did you compile them; per frame, per scene exposed (bracketing), per square inch of film, per hours of use. Does looking at the ground glass but not tripping the shutter count?
    Inquiring photogs want to know? Just kidding!!!!

    Actually I do have a real question for those that have indicated they no longer use their 35mm much since going to MF and LF. How many of you like me use the 35mm a lot for scouting shots to come back to? I have even thought about a digital for this use. If you count carrying an Olympus XA with me almost 100% of the time I guess that could count as most used.

    I think this LF x 35mm thing is a matter of priorities.
    If the best print quality possible is top priority, then LF, ZS, Azo, PMK makes a lot of sense.

    If you priority is easy of use, to be able to shoot quickly, then 35mm, compensating development are the way to go (besides it's easy on the backbone...).

    And if seeing results at once is the priority, then nothing compares to digital.

    Just a note: beside the Pentaxes I use a Coolpix 2000 (birthday parties and the like) and have not used lately an Olympos Superzoom 330 - very good for vacation photos.
