    Number of frames shot = Minolta XE-7. Number of hours used = Linhof.

    I use less and less 35mm all the time, but I still keep my Canon FD system for bird photography and those occasions when I need 35mm slides, like for copy work.

    I also have a Voigtlander Vitessa-L, which is a great folding rangefinder with a fine classic lens, which I picked up mainly as a camera to carry around everywhere, but I haven't used it much since I got a Voigtlander Perkeo II, which is smaller and lighter, but shoots 6x6 instead of 35mm (downside--no coupled rangefinder, so I use a shoe-mount rangefinder or scale focus).

    I have used Nikon gear for 35mm work for years, but have on occason borrowed a Lieca or Contax rangefinder. For my next 35mm purchase I will probably by a Contax rangefinder, as the lenses are near equals to Leica's at a third of the cost. I find that I almost exclusively use prime lenses except at auto races I attend, so I don't really have need for elaborate zooms.

    I voted, but not without saying here that I don't know why the camera brand should be of any importance. :-)

    Of course the right equipment is important, but I guess the F5 and EOS1V have more in common than the EOS1V and an EOS3000 (don't know the USA name&#33.

    Hey all.... I am a 15 yr Minolta gal. Love em. I have beat the stuffin outta mine forever. Probably put a milloin frames thru the old 8000... Honest!! The only thing that slowed me down was some moron stole my gear. So I did some soul searching, and decided to step into Nikon shoes. The reason was thus: Digital someday. (mainly for soccer tream stuff, ((volume)) and dances).... It looks to me that the forerunner of choices is in the Nikon based bodies. So, hmm....need to learn what I am doing, so I scored on a good buy from a nikon boy (N90s). Gotta deal on a couple of sweet lenses, and here I go... :0)
    I have the Minolta 9xi, 8000i, and 7xi. Luv em!
    I also shoot Mamiya 645, and Bronica 645, 6x7. Tried the Mamiya 7...uummmm..not for me. sigh. Also had a big ol Pentax 6x7, whew....
    First wedding I shot on a C330, w/ 180..fun fun... umm, could you hold still and still look happy for a hour or so??? Damn, lost em again...hehehheh. I also have a large collection of oldies (brownie baby) type o stuff. I love cameras. Oh yeah, I use a mamiya 35 mm also. OOOOLD doggie..... :-)

    Almost all my effort involves medium and large format these days: Pacemaker Speed Graphic and C330f and Koni Omega. 35mm work is accomplished with a Zeiss Ikon Contarex (a gift).

    I guess the division of effort is:
    LF..... 30% Speed
    MF..... 60% C330f/KO
    35mm... 15% Crex
    Total.....105% Yea, I'm busy! No time for upgrades, downloads or backups.

    Hasselblad 503 Cx - 99%
    Olympus OM4 - 1%

    I have an Agfa "Silette" I picked up in a yard sale for $1, complete with bulk fim loader ... I've gotta try that one again.

    My first 'serious' camera was an Yashica ragefinder - for some 2yrs.
    From then on, a Penatax Spotmatic - 33yrs now and, more recently an used ESII (my main camera today).
    All lenses are Takumars.

    I find that I am shooting less and less 35mm as well, but I shoot Nikon in 35mm (some Minox as well), Bronica for medium format (used the most), and Arca Swiss for my 4x5.
