I just got it. F5. I shot Canon since 1995, started with an AE-1. I kept with Canon till 2010. Then made the switch. We got a few 2DX's and a D5000. I loved them all,,,but...

When I went to school, I went to the Hallmark Institute of photography in 1996. There was this guy there who had an F5. I couldn't believe that thing,,,SO FAST! And it just looked so PRO. I was drooling over it but couldn't justify it, so I let it go. I spent years with Mamaya and Hassie, but that was for weddings, not for me.

When Digital caught on, I was shooting Canon, like I said. A few things went down hill, I won't get into it here, but I had just had enough. WHY WAS I REPLACING CAMERAS EVERY FEW YEARS? My 645 lasted 10 years and I never had to replace it. I decided I'd had enough. I sold all my digital equipment except the one's I needed for weddings and bought the camera I always wanted. My "New to Me" F5. I'm bring film back baby! And I got my "Dream Camera" for $400. Ha! Now for some new prime lenses...
