Therefore, Im not too worried about how my camera will deliver 6 frames per second, or interface with multiple Speedlights or studio strobes. I want a small light camera that is quick and intuitive to use, subtle in terms of presence and sound, fast to.
If you can afford an R8 or R9, you can afford a R6.2. Which one you choose comes down to which lenses you pick. Leicaflex SL2 friends insist I include this camera for its legendary viewfinder.
Theres nothing like a Canon vs Nikon discussion to get photographers going. Those with cameras from either brand love to defend their purchase. and.
Canon AE-1. Program its not quite as beautiful to my eyes as an A-1, but similar or better in many ways. Simple yet sophisticated, it shoots in program, shuttered priority and metered manual modes.
Look for one with a clean finder, unoxidised mirror and smooth shutter. Leica R9 this is essentially an R8 with minor revisions and both are a complete departure from the Minolta-related earlier models. This camera feels and operates like an ultimate camera.
I find it big, heavy and noisy; I could still use it if it offered a waist-level finder, but the viewfinder is fixed. It has a poor reputation for reliability at 1/2000s and on some versions the mirror is incompatible with rear-projecting lenses.
I do own and enjoy more modern auto-focusing and motor driven bodies, such as a Canon EOS1V and Nikon F100. They are efficient. However, theyre big and bulky, they draw attention and their specialist purpose borders on the domain of a DSLR.

Nikon took all that was good about the famous Nikon FE and FM series and combined it into one camera. I prefer the meter needle to a digital readout of the F3 and FA as well.
I also own an OM-2N. Pentax K1000 cheaper than an LX or MX, and consequently more popular, this SLR has a cult following. Personally, I would describe this big heavy lump as agricultural and leave it to its fans, who will no doubt pillory me.
FE/FM/FA/FM3A finder magnification and coverage isnt quite as good as the F3, but not by much. Olympus OM-3T this is an incredible mechanical camera with a fantastic finder and metering system. Its rarity value exceeds its practical value, but youll be the envy of users.
