    I was given a Nikon F4, after using an EOS-1.
    It was like going back 20 years compared to the Canon, the AF was slow, all those buttons and dials and to cap it off it never "hung" correctly on my shoulder.

    Best thing I did was drop it....

    The Miranda Sensorex was highly rated by Consumer Reports.

    However, I was very disappointed when this highly rated camera broke three times within the first two years of its three-year warranty. The third time it broke was when I was hundreds of feet in the air covering the maiden voyage of a new aircraft that the local university had just acquired. Thank goodness a backup twin-lens reflex camera that I carried allowed me to complete my assignment.

    It had to be the Pentax 645. The images were fine. Easy to hold. Great images. Whoever thought that a bunch of buttons could replace dials really didn't understand how cameras are used. I just couldn't deal with the interface. The Hasselblad that replaced it is so simple and elegant by comparison (and a lot more expensive, bigger, etc).

    Same here on the Pentax 645. I tried it when it first came out. I didn't like the buttons, didn't like the viewfinder with the intrusion for meter info on one side, didn't like the meter readout. About 7 years ago I got an ME Super dirt cheap, liked its tiny size and clear finder and have gotten used to the button thing and warmed to it somewhat. I'm now used to changing speeds only with my eye to the finder when using it. So maybe I'd be okay with it now, though if I were to get a 645 Pentax I think I'd get the 645N.
    I still don't like all the commotion with a full time winder though. I like my manual winding Bronica. The crank and Speed Grip are both about as fast as the winder.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Another camera I was disappointed in was the original Nikon FM. As a glasses wearer I found the viewfinder squinty, hard to see compared to, say, the OM-1 or even the Nikkormat. It felt great in the hand though, with typical Nikon smoothness and solidity.
    My biggest disappointment with Nikon products was not with cameras, but with lenses, specifically autofocus ones. The first time I picked up a plasticky feeling lens with a loose, wobbly barrel and manual focusing that was sticky and without feel, I was distressed to see the name "Nikkor" on it. It seemed like a betrayal of the Nikkor heritage.
