c. 1975 - Kodak Pocket Instamatic 20

1978 - Yashica ME1 (35mm rangefinder)

1979 - Yashica FX-3 + ML 50mm f/2 + Tamron Adaptall-2 80-210mm f/3.8-4 (model 103A).
Entry-level SLRs in those days were much of a muchness. I recall the most popular entry-level bodies in that period being the Pentax K1000 or, for the really cash-strapped, the Praktica MTL3 or Zenit. I chose the Yashica mainly for its potential to use Zeiss glass (I was a precocious 13-year old). It also sported a vertical metal shutter, and three viewfinder LED lights - very space age compared to the usual exposure needle. It was also a very pretty camera. I think it was about £100 new.

1981 - Contax 139 Quartz + autowinder + Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f/1.7 + Zeiss Distagon 28mm f/2.8.
My parents funded this upgrade when I started studying photography at college. Although not a 'proper' German Contax, the 139 was beautifully built. It had TTL flash metering which was pretty advanced back then. I bought the winder myself, not because it was useful but because to a 15-year old boy it had massive pose value! This kit served me right through until my first DSLR. I sold everything except the Zeiss 50mm in 2004.

2004 - EOS 350D

2010 - EOS 5D MkII

2012 - EOS 7D
