What is the Oldest Piece of Camera Gear that you still Use Today?

What is the oldest piece of camera gear that you still use today?

Every time we update our popular digital cameras and photography gear page we get a fascinating look at what dPS readers are currently buying in terms of gear – but I always wonder what about that gear that people have had for a while but are still using?

I think back to my trusty old 50mm f/1.8 lens that was the first lens that I bought for my first Canon DSLR.

While I’ve actually updated this lens (I now have the f/1.4 also) I still actually use the older f/1.8 lens semi-regularly, mainly because it’s so light and cheap – I don’t mind taking a bit of a beating when I’m out and about (not that I intentionally bang it around).

What about you – do you have a camera, lens, bag or accessory that you’ve had for ages that you just keep using? It might not be a kodak brownie – but it might make an interesting discussion share yours below.
