    I have a Canon AE-1 I bought years ago to replace my Olympus OM1 that was stolen. While the Canon will never replace the sentimental value of the OM1, I have dove head first into the Canon family of products. Used the AE-1 for many years, then when film was falling out I bought a 30D and an adapter for the old FD lenses. Now that I'm going back to film, I decided to buy a few more bodies and lenses to expand my collection. As of right now I have a F-1, EF, A-1, AT-1, AE-1, AE-1 Program, T70 and recently bought a Rebel G II. I havent run film through a few of these but they pass the function checks and are pretty clean for some of them being 30+ years old. I intend to use the A-1 and Rebel as my new go to cameras and bought the rest so I can do a full F and A series collection. So as I find ebay auctions or yardsales I'll keep picking up these old relics and maybe start my own museum someday. ;)

    The two SLRs I find most interesting are the Exactas and the Topcon RE Super.
