Well, the 35 mm camera I find most fascinating is Rolleiflex 2002/3003. A daring unorthodox design with fanatical attention to detail and execution. Unfortunately it's not only expensive, but pretty rare as well so, I gather, trying to complement a kit from scratch today will prove both haemorrhaging and an exercise of frustration.
2002? I only know of the SL2000 and the 3000 series cameras.
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.
