    K-mount cameras: Pentax, Ricoh. Pentax maintained his bayonet compatibility from its first models to the 2004 Pentax*ist, and managed an easy use of its over 30 years old screw mount lenses too. Advantages: largest selection of lenses in the world, with some units that still remain between the few bests ever made lenses (example: Pentax 1.4/50), lenses you can buy on eBay for 10-100$ only. In two words this means to me: reliability (for the system compatibility over decades) and freedom (for having choices of quality and price).

    In MF I use a YashicaMat 124 and love it! While some have stick with range-finders in the 35mm format, I have stick with my TLR in MF.

    I use a Contax G1 with 3 lenses. Love it. Might sell it though. Anyone interested in a good used G?

    I recently acquired a Nikon FM3a, for the second time. What a wonderful, classic 35mm SLR that is. Just sold the F80. Plastic and electronics just aren't for me, or at least, that's the conclusion I came to over the past year. I thought it would be Ok, and I gave it a good shot, but metal and manual is too ingrained in me, after 30 years of using classic Pentax Spotmatics and derivatives.

    I use a Minolta XG-7 with 2 lenses. I have a Rokkor 50mm and a Rokkor 135mm Tele. I just got it recently, but it's already kicking the daylights out of my old Vivitar that mysteriously died. I do have to say I am a hardcore manual camera lens hauler. I don't mind the bulk as long as I get the shots.
    I dream of little blue men.

    I use Nikon for most of my 35mm, but my old Pentax Spotmatic still gets out of it's case quite often. Especially if I'm traveling light and want the speed of it's f1.4 Takumar. Lovely glass. Mamiya 645 for landscapes and portraits. Once in a while I take out the old Speed Graphic.

    When I do use 35mm then I have a brace of F1s that are particular favourites. My small MF kit is a mamiya 645 with 45,55,80,150 and 210mm. My big MF kit is an Exakta 66 Model 2 and Pentacon Six TL with 50,50,80,120,150,180 and 300mm Lenses (all either Zeiss or Schneider). I have recently acquired a modest Linhof 5x4 outfit that I look forward to getting to grips with this year. Over the last 25 years I have never been inclined to sell any of my photographic gear (except 2 old russian lenses and one enlarger) so my inventory is

    Canon FX, FT, AE1,A1,F1n, F1 T70 and two T90s with 24,28,35,85,.105,135,200,400 (although not a very good one)

    Linhof Super Technica IV with 90,120,150,180mm lenses

    MF as detailed above plus a Hartblei 688 body and a number of film magazines.

    Its really quite rediculous to have accumulated such a stack of gear over the years but I can't bear to get rid of any of it. Besides I would probably never recover my investment.
