35 mm buy? - Photography

Many years ago I sold my Canon F1 and always regretted it. I now have a chance to buy one of these old heavy cameras. Would you recommend doing so? Thanks -- "Kids, just because I don't care doesn't mean I'm not listening" - Homer Simpson...

    I have a Canon F-1N/high speed motor drive and a Nikon N80 autofocus. The
    Canon has literally gone around the world, been dropped, and has had a lot
    of rolls through it. However, today's autofocus cameras have so many more
    functions built in than the F-1N could ever accomplish with accessories.
    With the N80, I can go from matrix metering to center weighted to spot by
    pushing one button and turning a dial. With the Canon, you need to slide the
    prism off, pry the focusing screen off with a small knife, put the camera in
    your lap while you do the switch-a-roo. Not exactly fast.

    Having said that, no, I'm not selling my F-1N.

    Definitely go for it! Likewise, I had an old Nikon F which I sold and have
    always regretted it! If that wasn't enough I then got rid of an old F2 and
    have been kicking myself ever since! They don't make cameras like they used
    to.

    I definitely agree with that! I'd be absolutely lost without my Nikon F5.
