My missing canon has arrived, so before i continue with nikon, behold... the last slr canon in my collection. The 1989 EOS RT it is the first AF capable camera with fixed pellicule mirror.It comes with all (dis)advantages of such a set up and i've added it to the collection just for that.

The 1994 F50 was the first nikon that wasn't able to (fully) use MF nikkors,aimed at beginner slr users it did have a helpfull advanced/simple mode switch (idiot mode ). Still the F50 will probably only remain a footnote in the nikon history.

The y2K F80 could have been just another 35mmslr AF camera in the row, if not it served as a basis for a lot of early pro-sumer digital slr's.
The D100, D70(s), fujifilm S1 and s2 DX and the kodak dcs 14 (n) full frame bodies all had the F80 as a frame on wich they were build.
(my well worn)Kodak DCS 14n the first full frame digital slr here with sigma AF 50mm 1:1.4 ( i would have liked it a lot more should kodak have used the F5 as a basis like they did in their previous models)
