    I do only have one, and it's an FM-10. In high school, I decided I wanted to learn photography. So I got a job solely to buy a camera (an FM-10). I used to get so angry, but I didn't want a crutch. Now I have a very close attachment to it. So it's more of a sentimental attachment than anything.

    I already have six, so ......... Any one of them would do,

    F x 3, Nikkormat FTN x 2, F3.

    Probably an F, no batteries required. Second choice the F3, purely for the TTL flash metering for macro work.

    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    I own and F2A and FE. Like them a lot.

    I have a Nikkormat FT3, which is also excellent.

    I have a Nikon EL2 -- eats batteries. Large, very heavy. Given the choice, I would pick the FE over the EL2, even thought their extremely similar in features.

    F2 over the F only because of the 1/2000th extra stop advantage but I like the feel of the original F a bit better.

    I only have FM2n and F3 and prefer FM2n to F3 and F3 to FM2n, depending on the moon phase, which leg I got up on in the morning and if I liked my morning coffee or not.
    But if I had to choose just one, it would have to be both.

    I loved my plain prism F but sold it (doh!) and the F2 is okay but nicer to look at than to use. On balance I prefer my Nikkormats.
