    My favorite (and only working) 35mm camera is a Canon K2. It's not an old classic, but it does everything I need it to

    I also have a Pentax K1000 that needs repairs :/

    Same old boring answer, since so many others have said the same thing: Nikon FM2n.

    I've had a number of Nikons, including F2AS, FE, even the lowly FG and the even "lowlier" EM, but the FM2n is light, compact, tough, reliable, and ergonomically sound. I miss my M6, but I doubt I'll get another Leica (I would be happy with an M6 or MP with 50 Summilux-ASPH if anybody would care to donate!). I really like my Canon P a lot too.

    I suspect a Contax 139 and a 50mm Planar is in my future.

    I prefer the FE2, but many times I find myself using the F4, F, F2, Yashica Lynx 14 e IC, FM, etc. I also use the Yashica Electro 35 GSN and the MG-1 a lot.

    I would have to say my favorite is my Canon F1n with a Canon 50mm f1.4 or the 50mm f3.5 macro lens. I just got the FN power winder as well as the speed finder. Sturdy camera that works well and gets noticed by other FILM camera users. For just packing around I use my Canon Rebel Ti w/Tameron 35-210 f3.5 which I say if that gets broken on my street photography I won't lose a lot of sleep.
    If the situation suits a rangefinder I have a Rocoh FF-3 w/35mm f/3.2 which takes amazingly good photos for its size.

    Nikon FA in black with an MD-15 motordrive. The two I own have been very good to me since 1995. I've used many different 35mm SLR's over the years and I always seem to come back to the FA.

    Cameras for peanuts

    I recently picked up a Praktica MTL5 for £10. As this was the first 35mm SLR I ever owned, I could not resist it.

    By a strange quirk of fate, on the very same day I was given a Chinon CE-5, complete with an auto winder and a 35-70mm lens.

    I know everyone has gone mad over digital. And I own and use digital cameras. But I find something missing from digital images. I can't put my finger on it. They have no soul.

    Does that sound crazy?

    My favorites are the Nikon FE and F3. I used the hell out of them in the past, and I miss them quite a lot. I switched to digital a few years ago, but recently began shooting large format. I realized that I didn't have a 35mm film camera, and I happened to find a good deal on a bunch of old Canon stuff. I've begun using an F1 with a growing assortment of lenses, and I find that my D300 isn't getting out of my bag very often anymore.
