What have you just BOUGHT?

What was (were) your most recent purchase(s); why and when?

Been on a big spree lately, I don't know why. In the last two weeks I've hit yes to the following, all from users on RFF:

Canon F-1 (today - should arrive in 7-8 days, thanks christopher t!)
28/2.8
35/2
55/1.2
200/2.8

Olympus Stylus Epic (andredossantos)
Kodak Retina IIa

Nikon FG
Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5
Series E 50mm f/1.8

The F-1 kit was too good to pass up; I haven't ever used or even liked Canon before but also feel brand-loyalty to be a little silly if you've never tried what else is out there.

The Retina IIa I've been hunting for a while, but got a Voigtlander Vito B and sort of forgot about it. The Stylus I got cos I couldn't find a Yashica T4 anywhere and wanted a nice little AF point & shoot 35mm.

The FG I got cos I still have a bunch of old NIkkors lying around and have regretted selling both my FM2 and F2A (to finance a Mamiya 6 years ago)

Haha, nice (ruby.monkey).

I also just bought 3x rolls of '98 Agfachrome 200, 2x rolls of Rollei ATP 32, 1x of Agfacolor Ultra 50 and a couple more obscure rolls I left in my office.

Mint Konica Auto S3 and a close-up attachment. Nice little camera. I have running first roll of film through it. If I like it I will try to locate a X-20 flash for it too.

I surprised myself by selling a lot of my (actually, all of my) redundant gear and buying a Pentax K-5 and 31mm Limited. Selling my previous 31mm was stupid--it's the best lens of any kind I have ever used, both ergonomically and IQ-wise. But the Pentax sensors at the time didn't impress me. The K-5 has brought me back on board.

probably my last new film camera...

a Chamonix 045N-2 + and some older used lenses (240Tele-Xenar, 150Sironar-N, 90/8SuperAngulon)...

this displaces a bunch of 35mm and a Minolta Autocord that I wasn't using much.

Not exactly splashed out, but just got another Lowepro Terraclime 100 shoulder bag. Using one as my daily manbag / P&S bag and will use the new one for my minimal kit. Got a Billingham for days when I need to carry more stuff.
Gonna sell my Domke F-5xb and F-803 and Eastpak Manhattan as they don't suit me and never get any use.

I'm envious about the Canon F-1. I thought very hard about buying it -- a serious childhood wish fulfillment situation.

I surprisingly haven't bought anything (equipment-wise) in a (little) while. My last photo purchase was a pile of 120 and 135 Rollei Retro 80s. Oh wait, and I received an old Minolta SRT-100 with 50/1.4 and 135/2.8 from a colleague, but haven't paid for it yet (he won't send me his PayPal payment address) so I don't consider it a "purchase" . And I'm shopping for a VC Nokton 35/1.2.

Back in August I bought a Mamiya 6 and made a vow to myself that I wouldn't buy anything until 2011.
Well, it seems 2011 came a bit earlier than expected..... Happy New Year everyone
A Sony Nex 3 and a Pentax 67 (talk about different ends of the size and weight spectrum) will be delivered this week.

Well, the wife and I bought iPhones. Now I know what a dropped call is.

On the plus side, the game Angry Birds is filling in the time I should be working.

Near mint Olympus OM-4 with Zuiko 50/1.4. A nice occasion to check all what they say about Zuiko lenses. We'll see.
Another Ricoh GX200 from a friend of mine.

Seventy rolls of RR100, 20 rolls Portra (35mm and 120), Kentmere paper, Kodak RA4 paper, assorted chemicals, more spare enlarger bulbs - and a Parallel laser alignment tool for checking the enlargers every now and then. Now I don't mind if we have rainy evenings all Winter.

In September, I got my M5, which was almost immediately shipped to Sherry. In October, my Nokton 35mm f1.4. I wanted to spring for another M5 but had a serious conversation with Our Lady of the Checkbook, patron saint of bank accounts and future estates, and she advised to wait on that one.

Last week I bought a 21mm 3.4 Super Angulon lens from a seller on Craigslist who was asking $800. I ended up buying it, the hood and Leica finder for $750.
Last night I developed my first roll, which was shot entirely using this lens. Film was Legacy Pro 400 (Fuji Neopan 400). So far, I've only seen the negatives, but I was really impressed by the sharpness of this lens.

I'm still watching for a TEWE 28-135. I'd setting for a 35-? but have yet to see either in person.

I'm picking up 4 bulk rolls of Pan F 50 tonight. I doubt it was stored well, but hey, its iso 50... and cheap. Worth a roll of the dice.

Nikon D7000. Been waiting for it for a while... gave away my D50, so as to inspire necessity. It's good to have one dslr around. Then I bought a Nikon 28/2... I guess just to prove how good the 28 cron really is

No RF stuff for a while–I've been super happy with my line-up since I got a cv 15.

So just the nikon, plus plenty of E-6 from my Rollei.

Do these even exist? There was a (inferior) Paxette Polyfocus finder that is often claimed to be 28-135 in literature, but that may be a misreading carried on from author to author. Mine at least turned out to be 35-135 - on deeper consideration, anything wider would have been a bit surprising given that the initial Paxette wide was 38mm (maybe early finders matched that, starting at 38mm and that figure was misread as 28mm later on) and that there never was a lens wider than 35mm made for it.

Finished off my collection of Nikon SLR's by buying yet another F3, and several black Nikkormats. I need to focus now on light seal replacements as well as picture-taking.

I really enjoyed searching eBay and Craiglist for good buys. I'll miss this.
