Well, I've only been photographing seriously for a few months and I'm already addicted to collecting old cameras. First up, the Canon EF camera: Pick up at a yard sale. First film camera I acquired. Still has fresh batteries inside of it. Comes with a f/1.8 lens. Out of all the film SLRs this is the most advanced one I own, having features such as mirror lock up, battery test LED, multiple exposure button, speeds up to 30 seconds, and not having to click the shutter to advance to the first frame on the film. Also weighs the most, what is this solid iron?? Sears Auto 500, AKA Mamiya/Sekor 528TL: Very simple SLR. The lens is a f/2.8 48mm lens that cannot be changed. Pictures are decent. This one has a winding problem, causing some frames to overlap. Bulb also works randomly; it either stays open or fires at 1/15. Ricoh Singlex TLS Got this one in an ebay auction listed as broken, yet the only thing broken on this camera is the missing rewinding lever. I've shot three rolls with this camera and so far it has produced the sharpest images of the bunch (or I'm getting better since the last time I've used my EF, which has been a while ) Sears TLS 500 MX AKA Ricoh SLX-500: Bought this off ebay and it seems like it hasn't been used since 1980! (came with the receipt and everything) Also came with a 28mm lens in addition to its 50mm. Glass is flawless on both lenses. Haven't shot with this camera yet but I can tell it'll produce some great shots.
