Just a polaroid EE 100 special and a 5000 both new in box, never used. Found also a Yashica Mat EM with a film in it but that one was stored too damp.

Another vote for the 55mm on a Mamiya 645. I love my 55/2.8 N/L, it is always in my bag (well on, on the camera most of the time really).

A Canonet QL17 - old style (not a G-111). Been messing with earlier Japanese rangefinders (Taron Marquis, Fujica 35-SE, Konika Mk1, &c) but fancied something a little more advanced. Just shot a test-roll. In the end it's all about lenses.

I've just ordered the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art.

I have the 50 1.4, and after a little adjustment it's phenomenal, I'm looking forward to the 35mm to compliment it.

I'm keeping an eye on the Tamron 35 1.8 that's coming out, but for now I'm going with the Sigmas, because they're a known quantity, and the USB dock is a great addition

Fuji Klasse. Not the S or W model, but the original one with focus on the front and the 38/2.6 lens.

Wow, you going to have a lot of fun with that! Enjoy.

btw I'm currently in the process of selling not buying and this will go on for the next month I guess - have to thin out the collection....and free up some funds

next buy might be a very early EOS cam: 620 or 650 - never had a chance to try them out when they were new in the shops but in those days I was very tempted to buy one but never did (luckily then I bought a Rolleiflex 2.8C)

Following a post here about the Japanese auction sites, I bought these two.
Have been wanting a Mamiya six for a while, this one needs a bit of love but it's the automatic which akes it worthwile.

The Mamiya 35 has a f2 lens which I have not seen elsewhere and a jammed sutter which I see everywhere!
Last but not least, I bought this on the local auction website. It was advertised as "needing repair" but when it arrived, the only thing not working was the film counter.
It's the V3 model with 1/3000th shutter speed and all the internet searches said that the shutter would probably be busted beyond hope of redemption, fortunately not so.
Needs clean, but cant wait to try it out, just need to find something moving fast enough in my sleepy little hollow where I live to point it at.

Olympus OM focusing screens

Olympus OM focusing screens

Bought two OM focusing screens -- the 1-2 (microprism for standard and telephoto lenses) and 1-14 (microprism and diagonal split image screen). Been thinking about these for a while for some OM-2n bodies and pulled the trigger because the price on these was lower than I've seen before.

I have another 1-2 screen. While the Olympus specs say it is for standard and telephoto lenses, it also works well for wide angle lenses too. Unlike some of the other screens, the microprism doesn't black out until f8, as opposed to f5.6. So it is very good for use with slower lenses.

The 1-14 has the diagonal split image that is superior to the standard 1-13 which has the horizontal split image. I don't understand why all cameras with a split image don't have it oriented on a diagonal as opposed to horizontally.

35mm Summicron, version 1 with eyes, from today's sale on KEH. Excited enough to have this on my M3 that I sprang for overnight shipping.

I needed to replace my ancient khaki Billingham 445, for the days when I'm not on my bike and need a walkabout bag. Had a pleasant half-hour at Red Dot Cameras fondling all the Billinghams - while doing my damnedest to avoid glancing at their display cabinets - and came out with... a new khaki 445.

Guess I am a creature of habit after all.

Jupiter 12 and matching 35mm viewfinder which fits and works very nicely on my 1957 Canon L2. I don't need to use the separate viewfinder on the Canon because it has the rotating turret to give a built-in 35 viewfinder.

That lens is such an amazing deal. It was the only lens I used on the Nikon Df… fantastic image quality. And for so few $$! Great choice.

That's a plus 1 on that... I bought one after I got the D750 body after hearing all the excellent comments about it and finding it on sale for $190. It lives up to the reports. I've used it on both the F6 and the D750.

Has some problems but sure is cool. Maybe someday it could be cleaned up and brought up to snuff. I have a 115 to go along with it.

Leica IIIc to IIIf flash conversion with 50mm f/3.5 Elmar.
Needs a good internal clean and a new RF eye,
Body probably bounced off the pavement at some point.
A little project to keep me busy.

Something drew me to the antique store in Salem the other day, and there was a Minolta MD 24/2.8 with the hood and both caps. I'd have had to pay three times the price on eBay, plus shipping.

I also scored a six-pack of GE 50B flashbulbs for $6.

Yesterday at our local antique fair I purchased a Zeiss Ikon case that was made to hold two pro tessar lenses for the Contaflex for $8, and a Kodak Retina IIIS for $15. The Retina"s body covering is crap due to body corrosion and the meter is dead but the shutter is working at all speeds, rangefinder is clear and the strings are intact. I'm going to recover it in something other than black. Looking at my wife's purse collection now for inspiration, She's starting to get that worried look.

As a long time M9 owner and user, I am really pleased to have added a lovely, one owner, silver M2 to my bag. The serial number indicates that it dates from November 1962 (when I was born!), and I purchased it from the original owner. The camera isn't mint, but not far off, and has a few minor marks on the top plate from previous use of a Leicameter.


I previously had an M6 TTL, but didn't really get on with it (viewfinder flare was a problem for me), so I reluctantly sold it. Hopefully the M2 and I will get on better, and early indications are good. I love the well made, mechanical feel of the camera, and the solid film advance lever feels much nicer.

I agree about the M2 being lovely to use. I had an M4-P years ago, but didn't like the feel of as much as I do the M2. I haven't had any instances of "losing" the RF patch with the M2, which was sometimes a nuisance with the M4-P.

Ok, so I bought the EOS.....the 100 (couldn't find any decent 620)
Always hated these plastic cams, but now I have one, I really love it....
Buying was a bit risky since the seller couldn't guaranty that it still worked / battery was dead

But since new batteries are quite pricy and the camera could be died, I first gave it a try with a 6V transformer
Luckily the camera came to life when I raised the voltage from 4,5 to 6.
