As cheap as 35mm cameras are nowadays, why not shoot the best?
If I was still shooting Contax, my choice would naturally be an RTS lll but as much as I love matrix metering on my Nikon D300 and a Pentax 645Nll that I used to own, I would most likely shoot a Contax Aria or late model Nikon with matrix metering. Matrix metering is fast and accurate in most situations.
Today, the only 35mm I shoot is my Stereo Realist. I mostly shoot large format, digital, and a little medium format and meter with a Pentax digital spotmeter for the film cameras, but of course that's me.
If you enjoy 35mm then why not shoot the best 35mm cameras?
