My Pentax MX, with lenses added over the years. Purchased new when my older daughter was born, still chugging along when she got married. Now taking pictures of the grandkids, one of whom will eventually inherit the system.

After years of wanting one, I finally got myself a Leicaflex SL.
The bodies are usually easy to find, but the lenses are harder to find and usually way too expensive for my budget
IMO, the Leicaflex SL might be one of the best looking 35mm SLRs ever made...

Nice! I have a R7 and 35 Elmarit III but would love to have a Leicaflex SL too.

My favorite camera. I've burned a lot of film through them. Great viewfinders and the shutter is so well damped. Shot the picture below hand held, wide open, at 1/8 or 1/15. So little vibration compared to other mechanical SLRs.

I have six or seven variations of the Edixa Reflex from the first 1955 model (not the Komet though) to the last, post-reorg TTL model. Very underrated cameras (and forgotten, they beat Pentax to the right hand advance lever, and in fact were only the second camera, after the Leica M3 to use one) - but definitely a case of a very primitive camera being sold with some of the best West German glass available.

I don’t know about that “primitive” part, they were using auto-diaphragm lenses as early as 1955. The Komet and the 1955 Edixa Reflex (as shown) differed in name only, I think, although the Komet may not have had the auto-aperture lever. I recently acquired a prism finder for this one, and it is kind of amazing. This camera was designed by Heinz Waaske, who went on to greater fame as the designer of the Rollei 35, and it is (in my opinion) the most beautiful 35mm SLR camera ever made. And yes, they were offered with some remarkable lenses.

Primitive in that development basically stopped after the adoption of the instant return mirror. They did very clumsily incorporate TTL metering, but that was the last "big" thing the Edixas got, and because they continued on with the lift-and-set shutter it could never be incorporated into the camera in a satisfactory way.

Pan,

I was surely lucky putting this kit together.

The EOS1 has a charm its own.

A really nice camera to shoot!

Thanks, Paul! After I developed the film, I had to slap my head: the rubber lens hood vignettes the 28!.

My first Contax was the 139Q. I loved it and especially the dedicated flash stystem. I was very sad when it died. I got some Yashia to replace it.

One day I got a deal on a 167MT out of Canada. I really like that camera! All the time I have lusted for Contax lenses, but never been able to afford one other than two 50mm f/1..4 lenses at $20 apiece. I envy you your 28mm there. Do you have others?

Not a big deal as I have a good stable of Fujinon lenses and an ST901 if I need them. But still, Contax glass is so good too.

My other Contax lens is Planar 50/1.7. I originally tried to get the Planar 50/1.4 but the price was high at that time. So I comprised to get 50/1.7. It's said the IQ of 50/1.7 is better than 50/1.4. Never try 50/1.4 and hopefully it is.
