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!)
28/2.8
35/2
55/1.2
200/2.8

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)

Haha, nice (ruby.monkey).

I also just bought 3x rolls of '98 Agfachrome 200, 2x rolls of Rollei ATP 32, 1x of Agfacolor Ultra 50 and a couple more obscure rolls I left in my office.

I bought a Rolleicord V for $125, local craigslist sale (god bless all the starving college students).

Olympus XA a few days ago. I had nearly forgotten how nice little camera it is.

Mint Konica Auto S3 and a close-up attachment. Nice little camera. I have running first roll of film through it. If I like it I will try to locate a X-20 flash for it too.

I surprised myself by selling a lot of my (actually, all of my) redundant gear and buying a Pentax K-5 and 31mm Limited. Selling my previous 31mm was stupid--it's the best lens of any kind I have ever used, both ergonomically and IQ-wise. But the Pentax sensors at the time didn't impress me. The K-5 has brought me back on board.

probably my last new film camera...

a Chamonix 045N-2 + and some older used lenses (240Tele-Xenar, 150Sironar-N, 90/8SuperAngulon)...

this displaces a bunch of 35mm and a Minolta Autocord that I wasn't using much.

Not exactly splashed out, but just got another Lowepro Terraclime 100 shoulder bag. Using one as my daily manbag / P&S bag and will use the new one for my minimal kit. Got a Billingham for days when I need to carry more stuff.
Gonna sell my Domke F-5xb and F-803 and Eastpak Manhattan as they don't suit me and never get any use.

I'm envious about the Canon F-1. I thought very hard about buying it -- a serious childhood wish fulfillment situation.

I surprisingly haven't bought anything (equipment-wise) in a (little) while. My last photo purchase was a pile of 120 and 135 Rollei Retro 80s. Oh wait, and I received an old Minolta SRT-100 with 50/1.4 and 135/2.8 from a colleague, but haven't paid for it yet (he won't send me his PayPal payment address) so I don't consider it a "purchase" :). And I'm shopping for a VC Nokton 35/1.2.

Back in August I bought a Mamiya 6 and made a vow to myself that I wouldn't buy anything until 2011.
Well, it seems 2011 came a bit earlier than expected..... Happy New Year everyone :)
A Sony Nex 3 and a Pentax 67 (talk about different ends of the size and weight spectrum) will be delivered this week.
