Have you al­ways used Nikons?

No. In the 1980s I had an Olym­pus, but I moved over to Nikon when it be­came ob­vi­ous that aut­o­fo­cus was the next big thing, be­cause Olym­pus’s at­tempts at aut­o­fo­cus then were hope­less. The Nikon F-801 came along and I tried it. By mod­ern stan­dards the AF wasn’t great, but the but­ton and dial han­dling was su­perb. That said, it was the viewfinder that swung it for me – it was ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic and one of the best I’ve ever used. You can trace the lin­eage of the F-801 through all the Nikons I’ve owned, so I can pick up a new Nikon and use it with­out read­ing the in­struc­tions.
