1) Rollei 3.5 E, most of the time
2) Hassi 5xx, with tripod: prefer the Rollei for walking around
3) M6TTL with MS-MAG 1.15: allows me to shoot with both eyes open and pairs very well with the 40 Cron
4) M9 - more a love and hate relationship: I am on my 3rd sensor but we crossed the Alps on foot togerher, hiked through Spain from south to north and east to west and it survived bushtrips through southern Africa without ever failing me. Normally carry M9 (with 50 Sonnar) and the Rollei 3.5
5) Horseman VH-R: actually I am looking for a reliable technician - any suggestion would be very welcome

Totally off topic but which routes did you do through Spain?

The order changes depending on the weather, phase of the moon and how long it was since my last "ack scanning!" fit. Also, I "only" have four:

- Ricoh GR
- Leica M7
- Canon 5D mk III
- Minolta XDs

Aside from the GR (which is amazing for its size), in reality I do not get enthusiastic about the cameras so much as for the lenses, which drive which bodies I use:

- Canon 50mm f1.2L (rendering + fast AF)
- Zeiss 1,5/50 (rendering) and 1,4/35 (sharpness)
- Minolta 50mm 1.4 (rendering) and 24 f2.8 (sharpness)
- GR lens & sensor (black and white conversions...)

From the ones I owned (and still own!), random order:

Nikon FM2 (n or t), small, light, easy to use.
Bessa R
Rolleiflex 3,5 (inherited by my father)
Polaroid SX 70 (it's so special for special projects...)
Leica X1 (small,light, excellent IQ) a little bit fragile but always working...

I limiting to 5 I had to select between the Leica M7 and the Bessa R but I decided for this one because in the long time giving less problem with RF adjustment !
The Rolleiflex should share the position worth the recently acquisition of the Zeiss Super Ikonta but you know, being my father's camera...

PS: if I should consider also the camera I never owned I should replace the two first position with a Nikon DF and a Leica M-D...

1) Leica M6 (or any other later leica film-body)
2) Mamiya 7
3) Pentax 67
4) Mamiya TLR 220/330
5) Bessa R2

Besides the Personal film-fun cameras the Canon medium FF-DSLRs 5D/5DII/6D are unsurpassed in digital usefulness.

unsorted list of cameras I have the pleasure of saying are my favorite:
  • Leica M6 or 2
  • Nikon FE / FM2n
  • Mamiya 7ii
  • D700 / D70s
  • Reserved spot

The leicas are for their emotional experience both shooting and the images themselves. The nikons were a wonderful introduction and still connect with me today. The 7ii system is a magic blend of image quality and RF portability. The digital nikons are well good digital cameras.

The reserved slot might be filled with something larger than 120, but I haven't had the chance yet. Naturally if I had the MP I would prefer that over the M6, and if I had the FM3a I would prefer that over the FMs or if I had a DF I might prefer that over the 700.

Interesting question. I think if I was hard pressed to choose it would have to be:

Zeiss Ikon Tenax II;
Leica M4 with Amedeo Contax adapter;
Rolleiflex 3.5F;
Zorki 1/Fed 1/Leica II or any other Barnack screw mount camera;
Plaubel Veriwide 100;

There is also Pentax H2/3/S/SV, Contax IIa, Kiev 2/3/Contax II, Olympus Pen FT, Kiev 5, Nikon S2, Canon VI-T and other ones that were gunning for top 5 spots, but I had to choose.

The best ones I own and use a lot:

Bessa R4M
Hasselblad 2003FCW
Bessa T
Nikon FE2
Konica Hexar AF

What every one of them can do, can't be done by any other one in the list...

Cheers,
Juan

Mamiya 6
Pentax Spotmatic
Konica Hexar
Nikon F2
Leica M4

But the past is the past so that means the top of the list is the camera I will use next. Could be one of the following: Nikon F2, Kodak Retina IIa, Mamiya 6, Leica M4, Nikon F3, Nikonos V, Nagaoka Seisakusho 4x5. In all reality, it'll be the Mamiya 6 next, so that camera is my favorite. I can't wait to make the 4x5 my main shooter though.

  1. Leica M type 240
  2. Konica Hexar RF
  3. Canon EOS 300D (a while ago, but it was a big deal at the time)
  4. Canon EOS 7DmkII (the up-to-the-minute version of the above, with bells on)
  5. Leica M3
Special mentions to my OM-4Ti and FM3a which I dearly love but were excluded through excessive honesty. Oh, and my various Canon DSLRs which fit between 3 and 4 above, and which probably got more actual use than 3 and 4 above. Especially my 30D, though I like my 5D more.

My Top 5 Favorite Cameras, ever...

With the imposed limitation of just 5 examples this list became impossible for me to produce without the use of an additional list of "Honorable Mention":

1) Nikon F2SB;
2) Nikon SP;
3) M6 "Classic";
4) IIIc "Stepper";
5) M2;

...so this is the "Gang of 5" in no particular order of preference, followed now by a list of "Honorable Mention" :

Canon F1/F1n;
Canon EF "Black Beauty";
Canon FTb-n;
Voigtlander R2S;
Nikon "F" w/F2 features (a.k.a., The Apollo);
Leicaflex SL2;
Pentax ES/ESII;
