1a) Leica M6 TTL .58x
1b) Voigtlander R2A
2) Fuji x100
3) Hasselblad 500C
4) Olympus OM2N

Pretty tempted to put the Bessa R2A on top.. I just bought the M6 .58x. I enjoy shooting it more, but the R2A is much more practical. It's smaller, lighter, has a better meter, better tripod placement, and is WAY easier to load.

That said, the the shutter and film advance isn't as nice, and it's not a Leica.

I've owned quite a few camera bodies over the years but not so many different types. Presumably my favourite cameras are the ones that I now currently own (on the basis that if other models were my favourites I'd buy those back in preference to what I have). Therefore, my favourite cameras are what I have:

1. Leica M-A
2. Nikon D810

1. Rolleiflex 2.8
2. Leica M-A
3. Olympus XA
4. Rollei 35
5. SWC/M

#1 and #2 could easily be different variants of the same family of cameras.
#3 could be the XA4, I went with the aperture priority model to differentiate against the fiddly but wonderful scale focus Rollei 35. Some of my favourite prints are just grab shots from this camera (with the Tessar lens.)

All the chosen cameras, for me, have their appeal at least partly rooted in their simplicity of use and limited number of options on offer. Even the M-A is really about just sticking a 35mm or 50mm on there, 400 speed film and best guess everything.

#5 is the only Hasselblad I'll ever enjoy using.

I've never ever even held a Nikon. I really should look into that someday

UPDATE! A couple of years on and I've decided I prefer the Olympus OM2n to the Nikon FM2, so it now goes:
  • Leica M6TTL .58
  • Zeiss Ikon ZM
  • Olympus OM2n
  • Nikon D700
  • Olympus XA

...I don't have the Ricoh or the Konica anymore, the Ricoh was excellent but I may be viewing the Konica Pop through rose tinted glasses.

1) Canon A1

The rest are all secondary. There were the pre-A1 cameras, Leica, Yashica Mamiya and Minolta. A Hassey I used around the same time-frame. Then the smattering of digital Nikons and Fujis follow the A1. None compete with the at-oneness I had with the A1. Everything else had/has it's quirks and foibles.

Also reading through the thread I can kind of guess your age by the cameras you favored.

Kodak Brownie - The only one I ever mastered the use of.
GAF branded Chinon SLR - First serious camera.
Canon 5D - Challenged me to bring my skills to it's level, never did quite but it helped.
Leica M9 - Well, it's a Leica
Fuji X-E3 - For me, it's everything it needs to be.
