What Film Bodies Do We All Have

I am sure that some place in the mix there is already a post on what camera bodies we all have. If there is please link me up. Till then I figured i would like to see how many of us go over the top or just plain like to collect and shoot our film bodies.
H2, S1a, SV

Various spotmatic's. SL,II, IIa, sp500, sp1000 ((most are not working but i do have in some cases several of each. My IIa was rebuilt as well as my SL))

K1000, KX (black and silver), KM, K2(black and silver), K2 dmd, ((all sent to Eric H and rebuilt.))

MX (2 of them with one winder mx), ME, ME Super(3 of them all either as new or rebuilt), MG, Mv (( both mx and all 3 me supers also rebuilt by Eric H))

Super Program (with 3.5 Motor Drive)

SF1-n, SF10



Ist (film camera w/ Grip)

I also own an ist-d, K100d super, K20, Sold my K7 for funds to get the K5 in the next month i hope.
I guess i have the "bug".... I do make a point to shoot ALL of them time to time. I have to justify owning all of them for use not just to collect Though to each his own. I can not hate anyone who wants to collect such mini works of art.

On top of those i own a Zeiss Contaflex set with the 35mm,85mm,110mm,50mm f2.8 and the 1:1 50mm macro.
Minolta set with XG-m i think it is and 2 x-700 with power grip 2, motor drive (3.5), Muli function back, 360px flash with Color filter and ND set. (The Rokkor Files - X-Series Accessories) Pretty much this.
Olympus OM1, OM2n, Bellows Macro set up with 50mm,80mm,135mm T8 T10 and T28 macro flashes..... Fun Fun. I use all these on my Pentax gear fyi.

I would love to hear what people are using, collecting and even looking to pick up!

I'm using an old SP500 plus SPII and a Ricoh super. Just something about those old cameras that keeps drawing me back.

4 Asahiflexes and then just about every MF model and a few SF ones. Within the MF ones also a few variations like black bodies or updated versions and a few "specials. Tooooooooo Many!!!!!!!!

I just gave two Honeywell SPII's and an ME Super in fair condition to someone who cleans and rehabs them for students so in terms of Pentax I am down to my pristine Asahi SPII (the much beloved Queenie) my original SP and a P3, though the later 2 are actually listed for sale/trade elsewhere. I also have a Yashica FRI that is in nice shape other than the film advance counter being bad, which is typical of this model.

I love Queenie, never would part with that SPII, and I like Frankie the FRI a lot too. Those two are my keeper film SLR's. Anything else tends to be negotiable. I've had a few film SLR's come and go, but those two, mine.

The SPII is in my mind a keeper also. though for what ever reason I think i have a new found fetish for the SV S1a and bodies of those makes. No meter but just Swiss watch quality.

In Canon FD: an F-1n, an A-1, and AE-1P, an FTbn, some FTs, I think my sister has an FTb and a TL. Also a Canonet GIII....

In Pentax, an MZ-5, a Super A, an ME Super, and darnit, Sightseer's still here (Sorry! I was very distracted recently!)

Also, though, a Mamiya 6451000s, a Yashicamat 124, of course my Kodak Signet 35, and, well, here's a Konica, and actually there's kind of a lot of machines around here capable of exposing film, as well as some out there that are theoretically still my property as these things go. You asked?
