My Rollei B35 is a VW beetle, small, but does the job. My Canon EOS 300's are Toyota Carollas, cheap and reliable, throw them out when they quit. My Spotmatic II is like a good pickup, built to do a lot of work and take a little abuse in it's stride.
My digitals are like that Chinese car, the "Cherry". They work ok, but shortly after use, you're left hungry.........
