Default T-Settings on 35mm Cameras.

Besides a B setting, were there any 35mm Cameras with a T setting produced?

Series 3 Leicas have a T rather than a B setting - but you don't press the shutter button a second time to close the shutter. You turn the slow speed wheel slightly instead. I don't really like that.

You just beat me, the only 35mm cameras with T I know of the Barnack Leicas, at least the III c and the f all have T on the slow setting dial

Nikons, F4 and 6 both have them. The F3 didn't and I also think the F5 has 'T'

The Nikon F certainly has a T setting. Some of the electronic AF models also have, and possibly some Nikkormats . The F65 springs to mind as one of the AF types. On the F, I recall that you turned the speed dial to close the shutter, as on the F2. I thought the F3 had a similar arrangement, but I don’t have one to hand. The electronic ones are a ‘push open, push closed’ mechanism. I quite liked that, but would be reluctant to use the type where you turn the dial. The way to deal with that type is to use a black glove/card/cloth over the lens before you turn the dial. It’s the same with Bronica SQs. Their arrangement is pretty strange, but it works. I don’t think they do B, and they’re not 35mm.

I have owned several F3 models and cannot any recall them having a 'T' setting. But it was along while ago.

The Nikon F3 manual says "yes".

Here's the Nikon F3 manual. It seems pretty definite to me.

Ha ha, sorry Marty - you just snuck in there first but I'll leave my link on too.
