My latest purchase was a Hoya R72 filter to use on my M8, for some infrared fun.

A few weeks ago, I went to Newtonville Camera for a filter, and walked out with a Zeiss 2,8/21 Biogon, and a 25/28mm Zeiss viewfinder, also for the M8. I still don't know how that happened. But I'm not complaining.

And a while before that, the Haoda Macro Reversing ring for Canon, which has turned the stock 18-55mm Canon lens into something dramatic and fun.

For my bro, the cleanest Bronica ETRSi I have ever seen (with a 150/3.5)

A sigma 120-400 in Nikon mount

The new Nikon D7000 DSLR... Well, as soon as Henrys gets a shipment.

My Vito B is one of my favourite walking around cameras. It fits in the palm of my hand so nice! I have a IIc, and although its gorgeous to look at, I really don't use it much.

As for recent buying, I have discovered how wonderful Canon P's are. Acquired two of them over the past few months. I think they are definitely destined to be my main users. Actually, after buying the P's, I may evolve into a net seller rather than a buyer. They are so nice it makes me wonder why I use anything else.

I need to stop...
I just bought a 75mm f/1.8 from an RFF member
before that,
I bought a V2 Summilux
before that,
I bought a Leica M9.

I think I can't come up with any excuses to get any more gear now.
Until next spring when my next grant comes in & I want a pro video camera...

I just bought:

1. Milwaukee cordless screwdriver

2. Ridgid reciprocating saw

3. Bathroom exhaust fan

4. Bathroom heat lamp

5. One sheet of 3/4" Birch plywood

6. One sheet of 1/2" Birch Plywood

7. One bottle of Titebond 3 glue

8. Two wall sconces

9. A dimmer and cover plate

10. A towel warmer

11. two grab bars

12. Dryer vent flex hose and coupling clamps

13. Out to Loew's with my wife tonight, and she bought a bathroom faucet.

14. One quart of Baer white primer.

15. Some select pine for the cabinet.

Not much photography this month--we are having our bathroom gutted and redone, and I got to build an in-wall cabinet with shelves. But, nobody said we could report only camera gear!

Picking up tomorrow at lunch a Yashica FR-II with 50mm ML 1.9 I found on Craigslist to mate up with the Contax 137 MD I got on the classifieds here from Greyscale. Pending pickup is a Yashica 50mm ML 1.4 also found on Craigslist if the guy ever tells me when to meeti him to pick it up. Lately I seem to be overrun with good Yashica stuff to buy. This will go together with a mint Electro 35 GS I literally picked out of a pawn shop dumpster and sent to Mark Hama for a fix up (spotless lens and now works great!), and my 124 Mat-G which is enroute to Mark fo a full tuneup. This assemblage should use up everything but enough $ to get an order off to Freestyle for B&W fodder and chemicals for the bunch.

A Gordy wrist strap arrived last week. About 6 weeks ago a MS Optical 35/3.5 Perar. Only other purchase this year has been a Panasonic GF1, my first dabble with digital.

The last big purchases have been a big box of paper, a couple of hundred feet of Tri-X (dressed as Arista Premium), an original Olympus Mju in mint condition for $10, a couple of Hasselblad filters, and the big prize - a Pentax DA15/4 lens, which came about because 1. I've really liked the pics in the 21 Super Angulon thread and this is the closest I can come to that FoV, and 2. the rise in the Aussie dollar against the greenback (to $1.01!) coincided with a drop in B&H's price and a relative making a trip from the US to Oz. That lot should keep me going until the X-100 arrives!

ChrisN, congrats on the new Pentax 4/15mm DA, as you've seen it's a very fine performer!

I just had a flurry of activity in the RFF Classifieds, swapping a Nikon S3-2000 + CV28SC + $$$ for an M9, arranging a couple of filters from Cindy, and a 2.8/35mm C-Biogon ZM from Sug. Now I need to be "done" for a while!

Did I read that right? You swapped a perfectly gorgeous Nikon S3 2000 for a Leica M9?

Wow! Some of these transactions are pretty impressive. My only purchase was last night - a couple of Mjus, one a zoom 115 and the other a zoom 130, for $20 as well as an A16 flash for my XA for $24.

Chris, please post your impressions in the SLR forum. That'll be my next lens, I think.

Lunch. And then for photo gear I bought a Domke F-5XA Shoulder and Belt Bag, Small (I am still searching for the perfect bag) this isn't it but it's small and light weight, carries 6 or 8 rolls of film and a couple of lenses and still has room for another small item. If you pack just right it will hold a RF body w/o lens, a couple of lenses and a few rolls of film. - jim

True! While the Nikon is indeed gorgeous and incredibly well made with great glass, I found it awkward to use.

I've had a run of very good luck recently. I bought a IIIf off of Craigslist just this week. In the last few weeks, I've stumbled across this stuff for @ $180 total:

50mm Elmar with caps, filter and hood
50mm Canon LTM
90mm Elmar with caps & 2 filters
Summarit hood
IROOA hood
1 ABLON
Canon 100mm viewfinder
Leica finder
2 M body adapters
2 LTM body caps
A Nippon Kogaku case

Here it is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/23653900@N02/5170934746/

Leica Elmarit-M 90mm f2.8, mainly because I sold this lens twice for some dumb reason, and always regretted it. On top of that, they are hard to find used these days, since they are such great little 90s, I just couldn't resist it when I saw one fresh on the shelves at my local shop.
