    Nikon F/F6. Either fully mechanical hewn chunk of brass that can stop a bullet, or fine tuned, refined, tank of an SLR.

    Of course the mirror box - film back is highly vulnerable, but I am not sure up to what caliber & distance can be stopped by any of these bodies. Maybe the folks at Mythbusters can test this . . .

    Nikon F100. Absolutely reliable, great to hold and a dial for everything. It is just a fabulous tool.

    My favorite 35mm camera will always be the Contax 139. I have so many cherished memories and photographs to prove it using that camera.

    Brass? Nowhere near. Aluminium alloy. I doubt either would stop a .22 short.

    I kinda like my Olympus OM-2n more than my Canon 1n - on the other hand, I do seem to take most of my film pictures worth printing with a Olympus Mju-2...

    Pentax K1000, It's a Spotmatic with a K-mount, But I usually have a Canon EOS body along with my "modern" kit.

    I have two M42 Argus/Cosina STL's in one kit, decent little cameras, especially when you can get them for $5-$10.

    I still want a black Nikon FM or FM2, even though I have no Nikon gear or glass. Just a beater FM and a 50mm.

    My favorite 35mm camera is my Konica Autoreflex T3. I bought it on the cheap from eBay a couple of years ago, and it works with all the lenses I bought in the 80s and 90s for my Konica TC-X. I've just sent it off to the famous Greg Weber for a battery conversion. He looked it over and recommended some other maintenance that's going to cost more than I'd originally planned. But I enjoy that old tank of a camera immensely, so it's worth the added cost to get it thoroughly updated and serviced. Can't wait to get it back and start shooting again!

    Rollei 35

    I have a few of these. One of them is always loaded and ready to go with HIE. A tiny little camera with a great lens and a plasure to use.

    I might have replied to this thread in the past... a search does not turn up the appropriate post, so perhaps I did not.
