    I think I already replied to this, but My F100. I love the focus confirmation, I love the speed, handling comfort of the whole camera. Just wish the autoexposure would do 15 min. work like my FE.

    I'll up the ante by one extra year: I purchased my FM2 new 25 years ago in 1984! I dropped it on its prism in 1985 and the meter stopped working. I used it without a battery for the last 23 years! The hotshoe came loose a couple of years ago, but I have no plans on getting it fixed. It will probably cost more to get the camera fixed than what it would cost me to purchase another one!

    For color film i'll shoot using Minolta Dynax 9 and for b&w film i'll be using Asahi Pentax Spotmatic. So my fav 35mm camera will be both Minolta Dynax 9 and Asahi Pentax Spotmatic.

    Canon - A-1
    Nikon - FA...and I have all the Fs except the F6, but I like the FA the best.
    Favorite of all - Leica M6, still very new to me, but I don't think my opinion will change, for all the reasons already mentioned.

    F4. In either the F4s configuration that it currently is in, or with the basic MB-20 pack, which it sometimes wears as well. For a small, go anywhere pro-series Nikon, then it'd be the F3P, without motor drive or MF-6B back, and with the pancake 50f1.8 - in this case, the later Series E version. The F2A is also a favorite of mine. To tell the truth, all the bodies in my .sig are my favorite tools. Some do see more use than the others, though.

    Probably a toss up between the Nikon F with a non metered eye level prism and the Leica M3.

    The Retina IIIc I bought my Dad, almost 40 years after he wanted one so much, but as a young father, with a young family, he just couldn't justify.

    Hey Matt, that's a great story, hope your dad likes it. How does one pick the best? Really depends on which day it is. Mostly use my Canon F1, but if I want auto everything, the Nikon F4, or F5, yep......depends on which day!

    I'm really liking the Olympus Stylus with the 35mm f2.8 lens.

    While there is a small shutter lag,maybe about 1/4 sec, the camera turns on when you open the cover.
    You can do this with one hand, so total time from pocket to exposure is really quick!

    I brought it with me to Hawaii and used it when I was worried about using a digicam or 35mm slr.

    Prints should arrive Saturday.

    **Also makes a great camera to load up with BW/Color when you are using the opposite.
