I have a EOS 50e, USMes.
I also shoot with camera like FED-5B, a russian rangefiner.
Another I have is a Ricoh KR-5 Super II which is K-mount too.

Currently hunting for a Fujica. Also like to have a Pentax KX or MX and ultimately will buy a LX...

Why Fujica? it uses Silicon cell meter instead of common CdS, uses Alkaline battery and not mercury, open aperture metering plus ability to do stop down metering. Want to get more M42 lens like the CJZes, Pentacons, Jupiter-9, Mir-1B. Pentacon/CJZ sometime is selling as cheap as like $20USD on ebay.

My favourate -> FED.
Fast work -> EOS
Carry everywhere -> Ricoh and later Fujica.

Dun mind other brand like Chinon or Yashica but many uses CdS cell and mercury battery. Later Chinon, Yashica like laster Ricoh (even Nikon FM10/Olympus OM2000) are made by Cosina.

So many cameras, so little marnee.

Nv seen a CS-5, will check it out.

;)
