From what I have have noticed, they are both inexpensive. I have several Nikon's, but I found this F1 on o-boy and had to give it a shot. It's not like I am jumping ship from Nikon or anything, but if I see a great deal I will go for it. I have noticed that FD lenses go for a song, even in mint condition. So to put together a decent Canon kit with FD primes, I don't see how you could lose. Besides, what's "one" more camera. Heck, maybe in the next couple of of years I might try a digital. Thank's for the input guys.
Thank's DocFrankenstein. The F1 is just going to be a car camera, or just for fun. I can turn around and sell it easy enough also, for a profit. I really, really got a good deal on it. As far as digital in the future goes, yes it would certainly be Nikon. I have an F3, F3hp, F2 and F with an assortment of AI and AIS glass, but also have an F4 with a couple of AF lenses that I don't really use that much. If the shot of a lifetime came up, I would grab the F2, just knowing that I would not have to worry about dead batteries or a full CF card or whatever. If I would have a D1 fall into my lap, I would probably snag it, knowing that I have some glass that would work with it. Even with the F4, I don't use half the auto stuff that it has built in. I guess I am living in the dark ages ( I'm pushing 50 ), but I still like waiting for film to come back from a lab. Cheers.
