    I agree that this is like choosing your favorite child, but of all my cameras, the Nikon F100 is my favorite. I can use it with MF lenses, the metering is awesome, and it's very reliable, it can bracket, do up to 9 hour exposures with an accessory cable release, and the controls are wonderfully ergonomic. Runners up are the Leica M3 and Nikkormat FT3, but they just aren't as fast or feature-rich.

    The M3 has always been my favorite camera. It's beautiful to look at and hold, and has/does everything I want.
    Those who know, shoot film

    Nikon F5. And lately I've been using a 75-150mm f3.5 series E manual focus in aperture priority with slide film. The results are very sharp.

    Nikon F100. With the Nikkor AF-D lens, the auto focus drive is amazingly additive!

    Sample of what this F100 + Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D can do :



    And sample of F100 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D can do :

    they are quite highly prized by Canon FD enthusiasts who call them the "Black Beauty", and although I have several FD bodys this is the smoothest of them all.
    I have one too. Great camera. Built like a tank. Shutter Priority

    I just had mine serviced for the first time recently, it cost about as much as the camera is worth, but I don't care, I enjoy using it so much, It's as smooth as silk now,

    My Canon AE1 Program. It feels comfortable, like an extension of myself. Using it is like putting on an old pair of shoes. It just fits perfectly and does exactly what I want. It has the characteristic squeal associated with Canon A series cameras, but the action of the shutter is smooth. As a "point & shoot" camera I like my Pentax A3. It is about as "idiot proof" as one can get - impossible to take a bad photo with it, but not as flexible or as comfortable to use as te AE1p.

    Trevor ,the dreaded sqeal is the mirror braking mechanism that needs some attention befor it ceases up (many people think mistakenly that It's the shutter that makes this noise ), my A1 had this problem ,until I had it serviced recently.

    Thanks for the advice, Ben. I would hate to let the camera suffer any damge as a result of such a simple problem. I'll get it serviced.
