Just curious: asssuming you have listed them in chronological order of ownership, may I ask what turned you from the F2 Photomic to Canon?

I had the same camera alongside an F and the only thing better (to me) about the F2 was the slightly more rounded edges which made long shoots more comfortable.

Sort of reminds me of the Johnny Cash song about Cadillacs: A little bit at a time...

I got a Lubitel 2 (cheap Russian twin lens reflex) when I was 12. This was a great camera to help me learn the basics of photography. No electronics.

Progressed to an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic-F years later. Bought a couple of lenses and excercised my creativity. Gradually spent less and less time on photography (other things to do...)

Then bought the Canon EOS 10 + tele-zoom to take on my first safari.

The move to digital came about 5 years ago with the Canon 10D. The options and control that digital offered enthused me again and I started to occasionally produce images that I think are good.

Upgraded to the Canon 5D about two years ago. Also bought the Canon iPF5000 to produce some good prints.
