Hi, I'm not sure this is the forum for this so if not, please redirect me. I'm just getting back into photography after a 25 year hiatus. I once had a Minolta SRT-202 that I used and loved for 15 years, but it was stolen. I had young kids at the time so I just got point and click cameras to replace it, but I have never been really happy with the experience. I want to get an SLR film camera again, a good used 35mm SLR, totally manual, and NOT battery dependant, like the SRT-202 I had. I'm thinking of a Minolta SRT, a Nikon F*, a Canon A1, Pentax or Olympus. To my total dismay I discovered that minolta is out of the camera business so I'm concerned about getting an srt serviced if I need it. I also want to use the camera for astronomical photography (another hobby). I know it's very subjective and I'm sure I'll get a variety of opinions, but here goes... What is the best, solid, dependable 35mm SLR manual film camera out there? I want a solid durable camera that I can get parts and service for as well as a selection of reasonably priced lenses, T-ring adaper for a telescope, etc. Is there another source of expert advice I should refer to (website or book)? I'm looking forward to your advice, opinions, and comments.
