My first camera was an Ikonta that my father gave to me in 1968, than I bought a canon AE-1 in1975 that I kept with the different lenses till 1997. Than I got a Contax 167 mt and recently replaced by an Aria in 2004. I also use a Canon eos 30v with mainly the zoom 70-200 f:4. Sometimes I use a olympus camedia 8080 but feel more and more enthusiastic using my Aria ( or the recently bought RX the BEST SLR ever ), for portrait 85 mm 1,4 and 135 mm 2,8 and lately my new Contax IIa with the famous 50mm 1,5. Since august 2005 I bought some cameras on e bay: Contessa, Vitessa n and Ambi silette are really fun cameras to use. I am surprised by Exakta varex IIa quality, the fifties are really golden era for camera ! My main purpose in taking picture is to show the beauty that exists around us if we want to look.... I have bought an Iskra II , a Moskva 5 and some Ikoflex and a rolleiflex 3.5 E xenotar. After buying a lumix lx3 and and K20D I know stick to the Fuji S2 and S3 Pro. I have bought A big Graflex camera but I have to learn how to use it !! Which camera do I take outside in 2007? 1. Contax AX with : 50 mm and 85 mm. (60%) 2. Leica M5 or contax II with 50mm 1,5 (20%) 3. Rolleiflex (10%) 4. Canon Eos 30v (5%) 5. Konica hexar AF (5%) Which camera do I take outside in 2009 ? 1. Contax AX (15 %) 2. Fuji S2 Pro (35 %) 3. Leica V-lux 1 (15%) 4. Voigtlander Vitessa (10 %) 5. U4r Contax (25 %)
