The Canon line of SLR's were my choice in the late 60's and on, but my favorite 35mm SLR for the "feel" was the Pentax Spotmatic. Small, rounded corners that fit my hands perfectly. Those were the days my friend..............

Yes I do miss my Leicas and the precision mechanics, like a gun.

It's true that shooting with film makes you pause and think if really want to shoot this or that scene. But I find that shooting "what the heck, it doesn't cost anything so why not?" pictures deliver surprisingly good results.
