It's a lovely camera - I've still got mine but sadly haven't used it for ages......

...another Sony R1 owner. I gave it a run out a few months ago and was immediately shocked by the modest early-generation LCD. Having said that, I always liked the ability to use the LCD as a flush-fitting WLF. The lens is great.

I've still got my old 300D, although it never gets used. I replaced that with a 40D & 5D mkI. The 40D has been passed on to my daughter (and replaced with a pair of 7Ds - one bought this year, one bought last year), but the 5D mkI is still in regular active service (at least until I can afford to replace it with a 5D mkIII). I love the 5D to bits, but the low light performance just isn't as good as newer bodies (& as I shoot weddings in dark & dismal venues, that makes a big difference to me). Optically & mechanically it's still a wonderful camera & no doubt I'll keep hold of it for a good long time after it has been replaced. Just for the record, my 5D dates back to 2006 & my 300D to 2004...

My d300 is almost 5 years old and still gives great service. I have though been investing in premium glass for when I change up to a FF.

My old D7 hung about unused as a spare for a couple of years until I sold it to a friend.

Still have my old Nikon D70 though I don't use it now, my son has my old D70s and my D90 is backup for the D7000 I use currently. I'm still amazed at the pics I got out of the D70 when I look back at them, the old 18-70 kit lens was a cracking bit of glass for a cheap lens, its only weakness was a lack of VR.
My pocket camera is a Lumix LX5 I got S/H and I think it's fantastic for the money.

Not really sure how old my d3000 is, was 2nd hand when i bought it a little over 2 yrs since. how ever assuming the previous owner bought it when it first came out, it would still only be about 4yrs old.
I use a Nikon D50 bought in 2006 and a D90 bought in 2010. I hope they continue to work for a long time.

Mine is my trusty D3 bought in 2008 . to date one of the first ever images taken has made more than the camera cost new.
For all I love the D800 and D3s i own,The D3 would be the one I would choose.
And my son has just sold my D70 and my wifes uncle still has my D200.
But back to the OP Then Its D3
Maybe I have got through more of the manual than I have the others and am starting to realize out of the box it was better than me.

Every time I get another camera I say that I'll sell my 400D. Hasn't happened and I still enjoy using this lovely simple camera.

Somebody recently told me that I should make sure I gave out the exif info on my images and one reason given was that it showed people that a good photo could be taken with an old camera..........it's a D300... Wink

I gave him a virtual pat on the head.

I've had my D200 just over 5 years - I bought it used so I don't know how old it is. I still really enjoy using it and have been happy with the results.

My "new" D300 arrives tomorrow with just over 2,000 clicks on it - I have no idea how old it is - I guess it must be at least 4 years old (based on when the D300s came out).

Currently using a Fuji S5600 - from 2005/6. It's convenient, reliable and, well, I'm broke! Except for the odd one or two scanned in from old prints all photos in my pf are taken with it.

Snap, same here. I use it mainly for landscape and urban night photography. Although taking excellent images it has it's limitations, and a camera from 2005 isn't going to last for ever. I haven't used my Mamiya C220 or Toyo 45a for a number of years now though. I'm currently looking at buying a new camera, and not being tied to any particular system, my choice changes from day to day, it's a nightmare.
