Ricoh GR1s/v Filters: GR PL, Orange filter (YA-2?) and an MC-1B warming filter
90 mm Elmar collapsable with hood & caps
Canon IVsb with a W-Nikkor 2.8 f/3.5
and a Leitz 28-90 adapter to use the W-Nikkor on my M bodies.

I think I spend too much money on this sometimes.

I just purchased two Takumar lenses. A 28/3.5 and a 135/3.5. This will be my first foray into the world of uncoated screwmount lenses.

Does anyone on this thread have any of the Takumar's or these two lenses in particular? I plan on getting an adapter and use them digitally for now and hopefully in the future purchase a Spotmatic.

i got a spotmatic and the super takumar 55/2, so i can only speak for this lens, but the lens is well built, good haptics and nice performane (atlest in my opinion).
your lenses schould not differ in built quality

ot:
sigma dp2 with voigtländer finder and custom grip
i have high hopes in this camera
struggled a long time, but the deal was just too great to hesitate longer

A Fuji GA645zi off eBay. Nice camera. Haven't loaded it yet. Should be a bit easier to carry on trips than my GW690III (at the cost of a tiny negative ).

In March a bought a second D700 body for my back up camera. This replaced my D300 so now I am completely full-frame.

- Nikkor 55-200 telephoto lens for my D5000. Got the non VR version only because it was a steal at $60 for a good condition used sample. Got it mostly just "to have" and the price was right. Not a bad lens for a consumer-grade tele. 2 ED elements, 9 blade ap, and reasonably fast AF except in lousy lighting conditions. Don't really mind not having VR, consider this an outdoor lens where I'll be shooting at 1/300 min.

I have to confess that I am naturally a camera addict, and this forum is definitely not helping with the addiction... I have a new list everyday of equipment to look at ..

In the past month, I can link most of my purchases back to the forums or classifieds here..

Minolta Himatic S
Rollei 35T (Black, Singapore)
Yashicamat 124G
Fuji GW690II
Yashica Electro 35 GSN
Agfa Super Silette Automatic
Konica Autoreflex T4, 28/3.5 (7 element), 40/1.8, 50/1.7, 85/1.8, 135/3.2
Contax G2, 21/2.8, 28/2.8, 35/2, 45/2, 90/2.8
Olympus OM-1n, OM-2, OM-4T, 24/2.8, 28/2, 35/2, 50/1.2, 85/2
Nikon F3, FM3a, 28/2 AI, 35/1.4 AIS, 50/1.2 AI, 85/1.4 AIS, 105/2.5 AIS

Still interested in either an M6 or ZI, 35/1.2 & 50/1.5, and a couple Summicrons..
Also due to a couple new threads I may have to look at an XA and the Yashica T's..

Ancient iPad 1; yes nearly a year old... Not specifically photo equipment but will find some function that way. At half-new-price I couldn't resist, but do have to wait for the previous owner's new iPad 2 to arrive before I actually get my mitts on it.

Gekopaca, that sounds interesting, and I hope those lenses work out well for you. I've got a full set of them and more; maybe I should pick up an adapter so my wife can use them on her G2...

Got tired of waiting for the X100 and got myself a Powershot G12.
Amazing little shooter - best out of camera JPGs I have ever seen.

While I was picking up my CLA'd OM 4 yesterday, I was chatting to the fellow and he mentioned that he had a dead Pentax LX that he was keeping for parts.

He was happy to sell me the standard viewfinder, and I was happy to take it off his hands for the princely sum of $30!!! The paint has a couple of small scuff marks but optically it's perfect. These normally seem to sell for anywhere between $150 and $250, so I think I've had a win.

So I've got a spare in case my other one meets it's end or if I don't want to use the high-eyepoint finder

Since I am taking daily trips to the local Japan Post Office branch nearly every day to ship packages, I decided to buy a bicycle. Of course, this couldn't be just any bicycle, I had to get an original Japan Post Office delivery bicycle, complete with the bright orange paint and all the decals. I can carry all of my packages on the front and rear racks, which is convenient being that I don't have a car.

Another plus is that I can park the bike anywhere, and the bike wardens don't ticket it or impound it. Not a bad deal for about $100.

Crown Graphic, 135/4.5 Optar. Now what do I do??? Guess I need to buy some film and some holders. eBay seller says this one was restored by David Richert. Let's see.

I bought a Leicaflex SL that someone managed to jam up. So I un-jammed it. It's no fun anymore now that it works again.
