    Just re bought a Nikkormat, this time after years an FT2, still using my original (bought new) Weston Euromaster

    If you have a Nikkormat, you'll never be short of something to bang nails in with! I say that as the owner (to say user would be pushing it, sadly) of an ELW.

    I was just referring to the weight and solidity of the thing - not far off a kilo, if I remember correctly, certainly markedly heavier than my (allegedly built from old T-34s) Zenit. I have the ELW, and F3, and my day-to-day camera is a D200 with a selection of old AI lenses so I have no axe to grind against Nikons, bar maybe the weight. I'd use the ELW more if I had fewer cameras to choose from... over 80!

    I have Nikon film SLRs and a few others, a small collection I suppose. The cameras I liked were my Contax G1s, I knew the time had come to part with them though about ten years ago.

    I'm still lusting after a FM3a, not that I would use it much. Always preferred a smaller/lighter camera.

    That's why I'm lusting after one and not just buying one. ;)

    6 years ago I passed on a FM2n in a charity shop because I thought it too pricey at £35 and bought a mint Canon TLb at a much more reasonable £16 instead...

    Made some nice pictures as well...

    Can't quite read it, but that looks like Microphen? I think I still have three boxes which I must try - Rodinal (because it keeps forever) is fine for 120, but makes 35mm so grainy...

    A false economy when you tried to fit your Ais lenses though? ;)

    That's why all my manual focus lenses are Tamron Adaptall...

    ...the Konica lens cap is just to create confusion! ;)
