Hello, I'm not sure if you're old enough to know, but perhaps you might know anyway.

What were the top two professional's choice 35mm SLR cameras of the 1970's ?

What were the top two professional's choice 35mm SLR cameras of the 1980's ?

Stuart--

I'm not quite old enough to know this, but I would guess the answers would be a Nikon F3HP for the late 70's and an F4 for the 80's.  The Nikons were used mostly by photojournalists/sports shooters.  The top camera for wedding/portrait photographers would have been a Hassleblad medium format.  The Nikon FM2n was very popular starting in the 70's, and many still use it today because it is tough enough for mountain climbers etc.  You might check a Nikon history website.
