Aah Kent, yes - when I was heading out, to find the greatest AF nikon film body, to use modern glass on, I was wanting a F6 but also was haunted by the aura of the greatest, revolutionary film Panzer of them all, the F5.

The F6 went for triple the price used and the F5 simply paired much nicer with a D3 in a two camera kit at that time (also taking standard AA cells, being a big plus).

I still keep the F5, although barely shooting it recently.

Today I continue, to have the M8.2 + M9 + 35 Lux ASPH + 5cm 1.4 Nikkor with me.
I will leave on a trip this weekend, will take:

M8.2
M9
35 Lux ASPH
Noctilux f1
Canon 100/2 LTM
Sekonic 308S

my remaining TriX + half a brick of Neopan400 (didn't recognize running out of TX)

I will pick up a M3 SS on my destination +
75 Lux
35 Lux pre ASPH

This will be like Xmas + birthday ^10, shooting the holiday on such beautiful new stuff ;-)

The funny thing is, that how many people described the F5 as a heavy boat anchor, but in fact it is more sleek and feels less heavy than a D3!

It is about the difference in feel between the film M and a M8/9 - the digitals are chubby.
When I am back from a trip, I'll take the F5 out more often (don't lug those SLRs around anymore, when traveling).

You're right about that, the D3 is a brute. My D300 with grip/battery pack is a load as well. I actually almost always shoot my F6 with no grip, pretty light and nimble (relatively speaking). A slightly modernized version of the F4 would be a neat camera, very cool design.

The grand champion for weight is probably my Contax N1 with grip and lens. It's a load and physically very large.

I bought a $35 Contax 167M-something or other to go with the $350 Zeiss Planar lens I'd bought. Been having fun with it. Haven't had time to develop any of the film yet..... But it's actually a swift little camera that reminds me of the F100 but w/o autofocus of course.

PS - for the record, usually I carry the M2 or the IIIf. I mean, this is the rangefinder forum.

I keep an M3+Nikkor 8.5cm and a F5+50mm1.4d in my bag with me at all times, I must confess the F5 gets used far more than the M3. I also keep an RB67 in my trunk all the time, but I've been too lazy to use it lately.

Using the Bessa R ; only today I'm trying on the Jupiter 9. Having had the Jupiter 3 on for so long it's taking some getting used to and having the Braun viewfinder, a Universal-Sucher, on top makes the whole outfit handle much differently. That J-9 sure feels BIG!

Canon P Rangefinder w/50mm f1.8

Brand new (to me). Two rolls TriX through it Wednesday, really beautiful handling of light thanks to the lens, camera is as old as I am and in perfect shape.

I'm also carrying an Olympus E-PL2 with 20mm f1.7 and EVF on it...
