    You guys are great! I'm starting to feel fracking normal here. I only have about 20 cameras. My latest are Konica T3. My oldest are Nikon F's and a Linhof 5x7.

    Less than 10. I might add one more, but I'd rather invest in darkroom gear and if anything for cameras, lenses and upkeep.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I have less than ten, They are mostly Canon FD the oldest one is a FTbn that was made in 1974, that has never failed and I just had serviced for the first time, I wonder how many of todays consumer grade cameras will be still going in thirty five years.

    What I like the best about old cameras is the ingeniousness of handling certain "issues" which are nowadays controlled by mere buttons, which makes you no longer really think about it. The simple solutions to problems or obstacles always make me truly respect the old camera builders and designers.

    And what I also love is that when I start working with my almost 100 year old 8x10 camera and hook it up to my Elinchrom Flash from 2008......it works! C'est Magique (not really magic but magical it is)!

    Yes.
    What i like most about (most) old cameras is
    a) that they are mechanical.
    b) that they concentrate on photography, offering control over the only three technical parameters there are in photography: shutterspeed, aperture and focus. Anything else (creativity, that's all there is more) is left to us.

    I wonder how many of today's consumer grade cameras will be still going in ten years, let alone 35.
