Before I begin, as a long time lurker I'd just like to say how much I enjoy reading the stories people have posted about their cameras and the images they take with them. I know there's a lot of expertise to be found here and hope people won't mind taking the time to give an opinion. First, a little background on the cameras in question. I had an elderly relative who recently died and his estate was coming up to auction. He was a great story teller and I have fond memories of visiting him as a child. I wanted something to remember him by so with the family we took some vacation time and went down. I knew he had an interest in photography and thought it might be nice if I could get his camera. I was a little surprised to find that he'd owned (and kept) several. I lost out on the Nikon F401 which I think is the one I remembered, but I did manage to pick up an old Rolleiflex and a Super Ikonta.
