    I bought a Praktica IV in 1963 In San francisco. It was stamped "USSR Occupied Germany" on the top. They were freely available then. Very roughly made.

    No camera collection could ever be considered complete without a fully working example of all the possible Sinar permutations ever produced (including an individual set up for each lens from the ranges of Schneider, Rodenstock and Nikkor).

    Then, once that's complete, you should do the same with Linhof...

    collectible cameras

    Nikon made a camera, I think in the 70's, called a 35ti which supposedly had a lens that was spectacular, even better than the 28ti and cheaper. Don't know what kind of batteries it took though. For a starter on a collection, you might consider the Argus C 3 which was ahead of it's time.

    The 35Ti is a rangefinder. I almost bought one, they are a great camera.

    If the idea is to collect and not shoot, or only shoot once in awhile, don't waste your money. I see huge collections being sold off every year for less then the expense in collecting the items when the person dies, or upon insolvency for whatever reason to pay bills and eat. If you want to shoot analog and buy into a lineup that may increase in value, or at least maintain value, then that would probably be mint condition mechanical Leica M's, and probably Nikon rangefinders, but rangefinders are a whole different beast then a SLR for a photographer and not everybody takes to them. Truthfully, in collecting in photography, great lenses maintain their values better then bodies most of the time.
    Personally, instead of collecting cameras, collect memories of traveling to photograph. Get a camera that suits you and a couple of lenses and spend the rest of your money using it to photograph places you've always wanted to go to. It's not what you can put on a shelf and admire, it's the experiences of life that are more valuable.

    Im not a fan of leicas or rollies, as they were mostly the toys of the rich, not artists.
    Leica and Rollei made their formats acceptable so that Nikon and Hassleblad could succeed. The cost of my Leica M4 and five lenses comes to a very few dollars a month when spread out over 40+ years of service. That's no rich boy's toy, but a much better investment for a photographer than today's DSLR.
