Cool. I just bought a F4e from someone on Nikonians. It's been on my wishlist for years. Can't wait till it gets here. I've never seen one in person, but it looks like it's so big I can shoot with it and scare people :)

Well I have only owned the F, F2, F3, Nikkormat FTN, and I still have a N70.... so can't really choose from any others, but the F3 was the best of them... and the F not far behind.

The Nikon SP.


Nikkor-SC 5cm F1.5. And maybe 100 or so other Nikkor lenses. Maybe 60 of those are on Nikon cameras right now.

I've tried a lot of them, though not the F5 or F6, and the N90s is still top dog. Fast, deadly accurate exposure and very sure handed. It's flash AE is better than any other camera I've ever used. We're going to he new house today and I'm tempted to take it with the 28-300 and polish off the roll of Tri-X that's in it now.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
