    For about 40 years I loved and used Minolta MC and MD cameras. Then as fate would have it, my girlfriend won a Tameron f/3.5 - 6.3 Macro 28 - 300mm AF Aspherical XR lens. Since the lens would not work on the Minoltas, I was forced kicking and screaming to buy a Nikon. [It is a tough life but someone has to live it.] Now I have two Nikons: an N-75 for color prints and a F-100 for black & white [including HIE]. The F-100 is also used as a spot meter for the Hasselblads.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    For me it has to be the Canon T90, it just oozes confidence, plus with all the wonderful FD lenses how can you go wrong.

    I like the EL-2 so much that I buy them whenever I find them available. Mostly, they are given to family members but they also exist to provide spare parts for my personal favorite EL-2.

    The only knock against the EL-2 is the rate at which it drains expensive batteries if you leave the light meter on.

    I really don't have a favorite, so much as a current favorite.

    Currently, I'm really digging my Contax IIa again, a Rolleiflex SL 35 E and a Vivitar XC-3.

    Well, it looks like it's time to update this. My all-time favorite is my Nikon F4s, followed by my F3HP's. The FA is gone to Illinois in a trade for a Nikkor 24-120mm AF-D lens...As soon as this lens arrives (on Tuesday), it'll be living on my F4s.

    I have just dusted off my Minolta XD11 and an SR1, neither have seen action for a long time. To be honest I was/am thinking of selling my old manual focus kit, but after holding them again .... I just can't decide whether to keep or sell them

    I used to be indecisive now I'm just not sure

    My favourites were the XD11 & SR1, with minolta/rokkor lenses. But I do really live my Minolta 800si with the VC700 grip.

    Update...I received the 24-120mm lens a couple days ago, and I really cannot think of a better set than my Nikon F4s, Nikkor 24-120mm lens, and SB27 Speedlight...Perfect!
