That is exactly the impression I got so go out there and take photographs . . . :smile:
I shoot almost every day Les that's what I looked forward to all my working life and now I'm retired I can indulge my passion. :smile:

I made my decision Les many years ago that I'm more interested in photography that accumulating photographic equipment, I have never owned an original F1 or a F1n although they are fine cameras, but I do have three New type F1's which are everything I require in a 35mm camera, end of story.

Well, don't forget your EF. As I've said before, I could be happy with an EF as my one and only camera. Fact is, until you mentioned it once about five months ago, I wasn't even aware that camera existed. The EF gets very little exposure (heh) on the web. For example, it's not mentioned at all on the excellent MIR site. A shame that such a good and capable camera isn't more well known.


I try to use and enjoy every one of my little photographic mechanisms. Maybe it is because I'm an engineer that I just want to experience all their differences and what it's like to use them.

Yes I do have an EF too Theo and a T90, but my primary cameras are three New F1's.

The Canon EF is also hard to do a relevant search on since it mostly brings back current Canon EF lenses!

I too have been an immersion exploration and have developed a real appreciation for these magnificent machines!

You guys are making me feel less guilty about my little collection of 8 🙂

You are also making me feel even less guilty I own in total only 6 cameras, five 35 mm S.L.Rs, and one compact camera.
I have owned them all for over thirty years.

But how many lenses?

All of them have lenses! Well, except my Zero 2000.

Actually, most of them are fixed lens cameras, but I do have wide, normal and tele lenses for my Retina IIIc, Zeiss Contina, Zeiss Contaflex, Kalimar Six Sixty, Kiev 4AM, Contax IIa, Argus C3, Pentax SV, and Pentax ZX5n. So maybe 20-30

I'm glad I don't have a lot of cameras, or a lot of anything for that matter, because I have always felt that the more stuff you own the more " hostages to fate" you have, and I have always preferred to travel light.
