I use a few different cameras, but the two that I enjoy the most are my Nikomat FTN and Nikon F4
Here is the F4s - a work of art

Sure enough, i prefer the "odd" Nikons - the F, the F3 and the F5 Wink
There's also an F4 here, but it feels to heavy and a bit clumsy, especially compared to the Minolta 9000 i was using back then, around 1987.

Nikon FE with Motor drive and AiS Nikkor 2.8/24mm, bought locally in a thrift store for CHF (USD/EUR) 40.--, and a Nikon FE2, bought at a flea market for CHF 30.-- (including the nice yellow camera strap). The Nikkor 2.8/28mm was a gift from a collector from Zurich:

Canon F-1 (old) with the FD 2/28mm and FD 2/35mm lenses:
Very nice set, bought from three different (private) sources, for totally about CHF 350.--




And an EF with an early silver nose FD 3.5/135mm - both in a very nice shape.
I found the EF camera in a Zurich camera shop for CHF 40.--; the 135mm probably comes from the waste bin of a local camera shop, but i'm not completely sure about that ...

Minolta XD-11 - very uncommon here in Switzerland, especially if it's not a camera imported through ebay! This one, along with the corresponding "Rokkor-X" lenses, comes from a Swiss entrepreneur who bought it in the US when he was young: Look at the beautiful camera strap!



The XD-11 of course was sold as the XD-7 in Europe and as XD in Japan.

Two not-so-common SLRs from the early 1960s, the Konica FP and the FM (with built-in meter). These cameras have the Konica F bayonet, not the later and larger AR mount! Alpong with the 52mm f1.4 and f1.8 Hexanons mounted on the FM and FP, respectively, there's also the Konica F Hexanon 2.8/35mm (middle) and the extremely rare Konica 1.8/85mm for the (older) Konica F SLR.

The FM including the 1.4/52mm and the 1.8/85mm as well as the 2.8/35mm were found independently in a small rural area in eastern Switzerland. I'm aware of a F Hexanon 3.5/200mm sold in the same area, but i missed it. Possibly all this stuff was related in some way. and maybe there's, somwhere, a Konica F sitting quietly on a shelf, in the same area. Or maybe not: It may have proven unreliable, and replaced by the FM shown here ...
