Chicago Photoshow yesterday

It was not well attended as I expected. I did find a nice 50 1.4 G for Nikon.

I found a really nice Panasonic G1, 14/55 lens, plus an extra battery for $445.

Also a Rollie TLR 2.8 Xenotar for $1050. Exact model unknown, dealer thought it was an E. Original focus screen clean and clear, but dim as I would expect.
Meter on the focus knob with a crack in the plastic.

Dealer phone numbers on request. I have no personel relationship with them. Just post what I saw.

The guy with the Rolleis was Bill Moritz. He had a fairly clean 2.8E2, a beat up 2.8F and a nice 2.8GX. These were the only TLRs worth mentioning in the whole show IMO.

I talked with Greg Metzcar for a while since he had a well brassed BP M2 w/matching Leicavit around his neck loaded with film. I believe a Nikkor 28 or 35 was mounted. Greg had a Canon 50/1.5, 35/1.8 on his table and just sold a 25/3.5 minutes before I arrived (damn!). IIRC, he had a BP M4 too - in fact I think there were two at the show. I almost bought a decently priced Nikon LTM 105/3.5 but ended up passing.

Two more interesting items to note:
Graflex combat graphic and a boxed Kodak Chevron at the same table. The Graflex finder was filtered dark RED (?)

I left with only a Weston clip-on dial thermometer

You must have somehow missed the Gowlandflex 4x5 TLR! Suprising, since it's the size of a car battery..

One of our own members (sp9107) had, as he usually does, a table of very nice Nikon RF gear, including a beautiful S-36 motor.

I picked up a nice black Rollei 35 S, a nearly-perfect Olympus Pen EE-S for my girlfriend, and a few other odds & ends. Wound up passing on a $75 Canon P..

No Igor Reznik this year, which was a drag. I'd gotten used to seeing his smiling face right when i walk in..

It was not Bill Moritz, I know him. In fact I spent 15 minutes conversing with his wife. Lovely lady by the way. The TLR was at other end of room, inside ring of tables on the corner.

Thanks for the correction Ronald.
Apparently I recognize cameras better than people
Hopefully my misrecollection hasn't inconvenienced anyone.
