    Mine are my Nikon F5's. They are built like a tank, and are about as heavy. However when the strap on one of them let go and it landed on an ice covered, paved road there was no damage.

    The metering is unbelievable. I have tried to fool it, but it always beats me. I no longer even bother to bracket, and that includes chromes.

    I have to admit however that I do miss my motor driven Nikon F's that I had as a teenager. They had a great feel about them and if I can find a couple in good shape my bank account will take a hit.

    Leica MP 0.85x camera body. It works perfectly for my 135 film needs. 120 is another matter

    Drum roll please!!

    1. Nikon FM3a - never have to worry about battery issues, it's light, it's simple, and it has a huge lens selection!
    2. Nikon F4 - a straight all business camera with a boat load of features without those pain in the backside LCD menus to dig through.

    I just purchased a like new Nikon F100. Reason: It is getting harder and harder for my aging eyes to focus quickly on people - particularly children and I thought that auto exposure and auto focus would be a great improvement over my older unmetered SLR's and rangefinders.

    I have been studying the manual and a Lantern guide for over a week and still feel that I don't have a good handle on the camera. In other words I don't believe that I am the master of the camera.

    Maybe I just need to get a simple Nikon FE for auto exposure and continue to use the manual focus.

    But still, my favorite 35mm camera to date is the Nikon F2 with the plain prism. Second place, Leica IIIf RD.
