I inherited from my father a Film SLR, don't remenber the brand
1990 Minolta 5000 (Film)
1998 Olympus µ2 (Awesome tiny film camera, got 2))
2003 Minolta Dynax 7 (I loved it) :)
2005 Canon Ixus 50 (Canon story start)
2009 Canon G9
2010 Canon G10
2011 Canon 600D/ T3i
2013 Canon...
I am still wondering if I should go for 7DII or 6D! 5DIII is ideal but a bit expensive for my use :-\

So reading through this thread (again) I am the only idiot who went from 110 film to 35mm digital! Wow! So I am a singularity! I wonder if that is good or un-good...

Its probably safe to say you hold the record for the most extreme upgrade   ;)

Absolutely! Given that the camera was a Russian camera probably manufactured in the late 50's or early 60's (see profile pic) I guess moving from that to an AE1 was an upgrade!

...and I think I'm one of the only ones who never (really) owned a small format digital! I only kept the 1VHS for about 2 weeks shooting Acros (which I shoot all the time in MF and LF) and didn't like the outcome. I just figured that since I already had all the EF mount lenses, why not?
