A quiet cheap (for what it is) Rolleiflex 3.5 F, almost perfectly working, except the flash selector, which is blocked with a wooden wedge (by some former owner). It's not a problem, as I'm generally not interested in using flash.

Having gotten tired of the crummy recover on the Leica 1A I’ve had for years..... decided to recover. The camera sits stripped, and on its way from cameraleather a new covering in coarse grain sealskin. Hopefully have a bit of body to it I never bonded with the A because of its skinny feel with like glove thin leather. Oh the Waiting....

Traded in my largely unused Fuji XT30 for a brand new XH1 with grip. The latter is being offered at knockdown prices and sits beautifully in my hands. The former was just a bit small and I constantly fouled buttons. The presence of IS of up to 5 stops is a huge bonus for use with adapted glass and also with non IS lenses.

As I wanted a good colour option now I won't develop colour, this will now be my colour camera.

Plaubel Peco Profia Eye Candy by Nokton48, on Flickr

I just picked up another Peco Profia Front Standard for $29 on Ebay. The Peco Profia Sliding 4x5/9x12 back I bought recently for $50. There are many many versions of the Peco Profias, depending on vintage, so do your due diligence with these. The Peco Profia Pan/Tilt Head is a good idea, really I consider it to be part of the camera design. Worth getting for a good price.

That's a 300mm Sinar Norma auto aperture Symmar on the left, and a 120mm Schneider Angulon Compur on the right. I'm also interested in the Komura LF shuttered lenses as they were marketed for the Peco Profia in the 70s. Highly regarded lenses different from anything I have ever owned.

Kanto remanufactured black paint 35mm Summicron-M v1 8 element M3

I know people will say I should have waited for the Chinese knockoff, as it would yield the same results for a fraction of the cost, and I won’t argue that, but......this just too hard to resist. Glass is literally perfect. I have owned a lot of lenses in my time, new ones, old ones, expensive ones, cheap ones, and had “refurbs” and “CLA’s” done by a lot of people, but the focusing and aperture ring action on this thing is smoother than anything I have ever encountered in my life. No significant degradation of the vf/rf image either.
It won’t “make me a better photographer”. Maybe someday that fact will matter to me, but I doubt it.

I just bought a Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 macro lens with a plain Nikon F mount. It doesn't do any kind of electronic or mechanical communication with the camera, it just focuses light. One thing that has always bothered me about wide angle lenses is that they don't focus close enough - I have screw in close up lenses and extension tubes, but they never seem to be in my pocket when I'm shooting. With this lens I can focus as close as I want, all the way down to 1:1. That's about half an inch from the front element though, so you need to be VERY creative to get light to your subject. Half life size (1:2) though is about 5 inches away, so you can get real close without any specialized lighting equipment.

Here's a toy admiring the Christmas tree it's under, shot with this lens a couple inches from Thomas's face:

Voigtländer VM 5,6/12.
Head Bartender, aka Stave Gandy @ CameraQuest is having a closeout on the recently-discontinued CV 12 v. III for $449, half of its original list price.
Just picked up one. I am not aware of a wider RF-coupled lens in existence.

From 1928, a QRS Kamra. This early catalin (brown swirled Bakelite) Camera taker 35mm film, advancing it from one special cassette to another. 40 exposures, in a 24x32 format. The lens is a fixed aperature and focus Graf f 7.7 Anastigmatic. Probably made by Wollensak it appears to be a triplet. The camera itself is Huge, roughly the size of a brick! Still tinkering with it to work out a bug in the shutter but overall looks like I can get it operational.

I bought a Fujifilm XF10 camera yesterday.

I got the black one, the champagne gold with brown skin was a bit much for me to handle.

The way I justified this unnecessary purchase was:
a) It was on sale!
b) I bought it for my wife to use.
c) It fits in my pocket!
d) It’ll be a good back-up camera in case my other 8 digital cameras and 4 film cameras all break.

A-D are total lies! I bought it because I wanted it! And, it is true that it fits in my pocket.

All the best,
Mike

Just ordered a Canon 5DS for work/less personal work. I am really excited to pickup a macro lens and do some film scanning with it. I can't image Portra 400 or Tri-x in 35mm actually has 50MP worth of detail but we shall see!

Carl Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 Sonnar ZA, plus a Sony LA-EA4 adapter.

After three years of ownership my A7ii finally gets an autofocus lens with which to play.

The 105/2.5 is indeed a legendary lens.

Is your lens indexed correctly with the head (via the aperture ring twist-twist ritual)? The head's indicator in the photo shows a setting closer to f/1.2 than f/2.8

If a couple of weeks ago counts as “just,” I just bought another crazy 7Artisans M-mount lens, the 75mm f/1.25. Results so far in my limited shooting are ambiguous... need to find a patient model who will sit in front of it while I experiment with cameras and settings.

I did just post a somewhat discursive video about it: https://youtu.be/7VM_eZwBApg

Near perfect condition FM with the best zoom lens Nikon ever made - the 43-86.
Actually this is the second, improved version (you can tell because the text is on the outside of the lens ring) which is meant to be decent.
Found this at a Goodwill.

No, man, you can't do that. You gotta build that auto reflex muscle memory. 12 times an hour, 24 times a day, 365 days a year - for a decade. Like an elite soldier, performance follows practice. Don't skip the twist ritual - not doing it has gotten photographers killed.
