    Nothing wrong with only having a 50mm lens Morten... I have a Praktica with six lenses and an OM 10 with only one. I like to use the OM10 because it encourages me to think more carefully about each shot.

    My last Olympus outfit before I switched to Nikon was the OM1 and OM2n
    a 28mm f/2,8; 50mm f/1,8; 135mm f/3,5 and a 300mm f/4,5. One body and the first three lenses made a very light and compact traveloutfit. The only thing missing on the OM1 was a true multiexposure button.
    Use it and consider one lens only a challenge.

    I know. But I have a 50 mm for my Canon EOS as well and the meter in the Canon is SO precise. So I rarely take it out...I may put it up for sale on APUG soon....

    I have (2) F4s, (2) FM2N, and an F3T. I love them all for their qualities and durability. I will say that there is no best camera since there is only a best camera for a particular situation. For all around greatest 35mm though you can't beat the FM2N. It is built to take a beating, is mechanically very sound, and with the older fantastic Nikon optics, is an unbeatable combination. The only feature it has is me. I decide what it should do. If I make a good picture, it's because of what I saw and did, same for when I make a bad picture. The camera is only a tool in the process with zero participation of its own.
    In trickier situations the F4 or F3 might have a few needed extras to produce the right elements you are looking for.
    I have only had one Leica, the IIIf. It was a work of art but a very inconvenient camera for my lack of rangefinder knowledge.
    I also own Hasselblad equipment and no matter what other cameras can do, the Hasselblad never disappoints.
    For digital - of course - I use Canon.

    If I was to comment on the F3 for quality, it is an awesome camera to use and to hold. The flash features are not its strong point but with the right gear, flash is not an issue. It is a great available light camera though and packed with features for adjusting exposure. I'll never sell mine.

    I had an early model F3. It was a nightmare - I replaced the circuit board 3 times in the first 10 or so years. It hasn't worked for the last 6 years, so it has now become a paperweight.

    After reading Roteague's reply I've decided to sell my F3.
    Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
