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!)

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)
