    First time I have read this thread so decided to go through all 30 pages. I got to P27 until I found a qualified criticism of the F5 but as far as I can see no mention of any disappontment with the P645N or the F6.

    So we have at least two good cameras(F6 and P645N) and one thats OK for slides(F5) but underexposes colour neg and presumably on that basis B&W but presumably there's an easy workaround for the F5.

    Oh and another one that hasn't disappointed is the F100 which seems to be echoed in sentiments expressed in the F100 v F5 thread.

    So some positives in the Nikon and Pentax range at least

    Good logic. Based on that my 1951 Kodak Brownie Hawkeye must be a tremendous camera since it has no registered disappointments either - nor my 1964 Kodak Instamatic 104 !

    Ditto....

    Every camera has it's own issues but none I would consider having been a disappointment unless it simply didn't work.

    Minolta X-700. Bought and pitched 2(one NOS) within 18 months recently after they crapped out. Baked-in problem with bum electronics that doomed many of what was once Minolta's manual focus flagship to premature deaths. Yeah, they can be fixed but ask, as the soldering iron heats up, why the Nikon FE or F3(both born around the same time)are still shooting away today?

    True but there might just be a few more users of F100s, P645N and F6s on APUG than the cameras you have.

    Might as well add all 4x5s and 8x10s to the list. No one seems to have been disappointed with those either

    With me it has to be the Pentax ME. Honestly it's disappointment born out of frustration. It just felt a little too small and what really got to me was loading film. Never got the hang ofthe ' magic fingers' slots,it was a fight to load it every time for me.And I will admit the only reason I never wanted an LX was the same d&*@# fingers.

    In the case of the F6, not too many more users I suspect.

    First generation auto focus SLRs must have been the biggest anticlimax in photo history.

    Anything Russian. Geez, why did they even bother??? I've had countless brand new ones break in my hands. And the sound of those cameras! *SpRiNg!!*

    8x10 Deardorff. I had a nice one. It was beautiful to look at and I liked some things about it but in actual use, it simply never lived up to its overblown reputation.
