    For me it is my Nikonos V with the 15mm lens, I think that it is because I don't get to shoot this camera and lens that often because it is an underwater only setup, but when I do I can see why people say that this was the best underwater camera and lens combination ever. I also have to admit that the 35mm land and underwater lens makes nice photos on land when I am willing to spend the time to focus it. I have gotten some really great day at the beach photos with this camera and those lenses.

    Steve.
    I always forget that the Reflex's are a numbered series, I checked the one I have it is a IV. Am I right in assuming the lenses are interchangable over the entire line?

    I think so. And with a bit of modification, the Bessamatic lenses can be made to fit too. They share a lens mount but have tabs to prevent interchanging them. A bit of filing makes them work.

    My trusty little Olympus 35RC. Small enough to stick in a coat pocket, yet the little Zuikio lens is always up to razor sharp shots. Best of all I paid nothing for it.

    When I first got my Oly XA, I loved its good qualities-- sharpness, pocketability, toughness. Now I love its bad qualities-- the weird flares when you point it near the sun, the falloff at the corners, even the light leaks on the first couple shots on a roll. I may be irrational but I'm happy!

    for me it would have to be an agfa surshot.
    the body is kind of cardboardy, and when i wind the roll it feels like
    the camera is going to break / implode/rip ..
    but it is a lot of fun to use.
    i am a fan of low technology / lo-fi
    and box cameras like this surshot fit the bill !

    For me it's two camera:

    Kodak Retina IIa - a co-worker had heard that I liked old cameras and just gave it to me one day. I let the camera sit in a drawer for over a year before I even bothered running a roll of film through it. Oh my! That was a dumb mistake. The rendering in black and white of this lens is really nice and the camera is just fun to use. It reminds me of a pocket watch every time I open it.

    Yashica Electro G - My wife found this little guy at a thrift store and bought it for $3and brought it home. Everything on it works perfectly and it even had a working battery in it. Over the years its become my go to camera when I'm lazy and I want something that is relatively point and shoot. The F/1.7 lens is surprisingly good!

    That's an easy one - my Pentax ME Super. This was my first camera, which my parents bought for me while I was in high school taking my first photography course. I took that course just to avoid another study hall (ADHD hell!) - little did I know how much of an impact that course would have on my life! I especially love the smc PENTAX-M 1:1.7 50mm lens I have on it. It is wonderful!
