I want to say I like the idea of this forum. I also appreciate that it crosses all brands/mounts/etc. I love all film cameras, and appreciate that there is a place to easily discuss many different kinds of "modern" film cameras. I think we should take nominations for the Hall of Fame in modern film cameras. Feel free to nominate your favourites ... or give a nod to the "almost greats". To start things off, I nominate: Nikon F100 - it's really as big a camera as I want to carry in 35mm. Stunningly well built. A feeling of speed and precision that has to be experienced to be appreciated. And featuring the most modern of Nikon's film camera interfaces (you digital shooters will be right at home.) Pentax MZ-S - Pentax's final film flagship. It is tiny, quirky, and a joy to shoot with. The truly unique digital control interface (with big dials rotating around displays on the top, and the use of traditional aperture ring lenses) does a great job of "getting out of the way." If aperture rings were more ubiquitous, continuing this interface would help Pentax's image of offering a unique product. Other Pentax specialties are present here as well -- small body size, huge viewfinder, good build quality. The MZ-S is to the F100 as a Porsche is to a top-of-the-line Corvette - small, nimble, quirky and not really as fast.
