    It is too bad though that Nikon left out the film cutting knife.

    Haha, I guess not (I posted that comment while I was maybe halfway through this thread).

    I really like the look of the New F-1 though. It's sad that the EOS transition left perfectly good (L-types, even) lenses sitting in the dust. Maybe I'll pick one up at a later point, although a T-series camera probably wouldn't kill my wallet

    @OP, those pictures are great. Do you have a favorite film-developer combination?

    This is the first time I hear of this, was it a camera feature?

    My Canon FD lenses were never " left sitting in the dust" I'm still using them on my Canon FD bodys 25 years later. I don't need a Canon EOS, autofocus is automation I don't need for the type of photography I do, and is just something else to go wrong.

    It was on some cameras, for instance my Exakta VXIIa had on the bottom a small knob, which when unscrewed and pulled out cut the film - so you could expose (say) a few frames, then remove the film for processing.

    Great shots, both at the beginning of the thread and now.

    And coupled with cassette to cassette film transport also allowed one to switch film emulsions mid roll if they wanted to. Or forgo rewinding/opening a cassette if you planned on developing the film right away anyway (just cut the film and spool it off of the take up spool, instead of rewinding it into the cassette).
