Was a very big 50 user until I bought a 35 last year, 35 is now my workhorse, 50 plays second fiddle. Would enjoy a fast 28.

Depends on the lenses, but if I had no 35mm SLR system. I'd be inclined to shoot with a Nikon MF. Go for a EOS 3, 7xx? or a 1n? I'd keep the 1V.

I don't like any 400s, but if I had to choose, then it would be Kodak Gold 400, as I've had good results. Didn't like Fuji Superia 400, but I did like Fuji Superia 800. Weird, I know.

I prefer something like a Zeiss Ikon over a Bessa, body-wise, for the accuracy and nice viewfinder. If this other camera costs less than half, let's say under $4,000? Then hello, M-Mount!
