Just last week:

1. 10 rolls of Portra 400.
2. 5 rolls of Tmax P3200.
3. 5 rolls of Tri X.

And from the fine folks at Precision Camera:

4. A black Leica M9P (took advantage of their offer to RFF members).

Cheers,

Antonio

Just an example of how harmful "window shopping" could be.
Went out for a walk, and ended up coming home with a Noct-Nikkor 58mm f1.2.
Spent the whole evening trying it out. It's a beaut!

Just received 10x rolls of Kodak Tri-X from Freestyle's Tri-X promotion.

Also hit the purchase button on a beautiful EX Nikon F w/ FTN finder from KEH, including:

-35/2.8 Nippon Kogaku
-50/2 Nippon Kogaku
-105/2.5 Nippon Kogaku

All lenses with their original early front and rear caps and hoods.

Can't wait! I sold my Nikon F about three years ago and have regretted it ever since.

I've gone a bit crazy lately. Last weekend it was a Zuiko 200mm f/4. Today a Canon FD 135mm f/2. I don't even have a body for it. Weird GAS...

Two small Softies from Tom A in red for Leica M6 and X100 plus a Lensmate thumb grip (more importantly, a compensation dial protector!) for my X100. Oh, and there's a Billingham bag on the way from B&H...TW

You're right on the Nikon F.
I've tried other challenger SLRs around the same era, Canon F1 (even though it's really a 70s camera) being one of them, but somehow the difference is just there. I enjoyed shooting the F much more than everything else. I'd say its on par with Leica's M2/M3 in terms of sheer enjoyment.

Did you get the Snapshot Skopar or the Color Skopar? In either case, excellent optics!

I got the Color Skopar. Is it essentially the same lens with different mounts? I'm really excited to use it.

Just bought an old Serenar 35 3.5 for less than $150 on that one auction site. I've been longing for a 35 since I bought my Bessas, and for the price I couldn't help but buy my serenar 50 1.8 a matching friend. Can't wait!

35mm Nokton f1.2 ver. 2.

I shot with it all weekend. Looks to be great for low light, but I don't think my 35mm Summicron ASPH will get dusty as my walk around lens for most purposes.

An OM-3 from maitani .... now the wait!

This is the second item that's popped up in the classifieds in just over a month where I've seen the ad and instantly said "I'll take it!" without hesitation. The other was my RD-1s.

Thumbs up Chamonix 45N-2

(Sorry for the large images ... it was a big purchase! ... and taken from my BlackBerry, so not the best quality.)

Wow. Just wow, Earl.

What does that thing look like folded/collapsed? The base looks super tech!

This deserves a thread of its own.

Oh. my.

I've been lusting for one of their 8x10s. Actually, I've been lusting for all 8x10s that aren't monorails.

I love black paint stuff and I always found the frame counter of the M2 somehow sexy ;-) What better, to get one in BP then!

Tri-X and Ilford chemicals, and a second 35mm negative holder for the Epson V700 scanner, so I can cut out the tabs and use full 6-frame ANR glass inserts from Better Scanning. (The inserts will be my next purchase.)

Nah, it's 3 lbs + lens board/lens. The bottom/black bits are carbon fibre, the wood is Canadian maple, the silver bits are aircraft grade aluminum. The focusing mechanism (nob at rear) uses stainless steel ball bearings.elb

Frank -- I'm planning on a trip to drop off stuff for Jan and you on Sunday (pending logistics) and can bring this with. I also received a Velbon CF tripod today, and should get an Acratech GP head "real soon now". I be stylin'!

Ken: If I could physically manage an 8x10, I would be sorely tempted. I'm really interested in Pt/Pd contact prints, but 8x10 is beyond my limits. I got the Chamonix 45N-2 because coupled with a much lighter tripod, I could continue to shoot LF as I age and my physical abilities may be increasingly restrictive. I am contemplating digitally enlarged negatives from 4x5 originals, so that I can print more than small contact prints.

Lol, me too!!

Mine is dark Teak and grey, with the reflex hood for when I am not climbing mountains with it.

I also picked up a 90mm 6.8 Grandagon, 135mm 5.6 Apo-Sironar and a 180mm 5.6 Apo Symmar.

I still can't believe this camera with the 135mm and a film holder weighs less than my D800 with a 17-35 on it.

The Chamonix is THE field camera to get in 2012!

Yeah, that CF lens board does look nice, I might have to get one for my main lens, the 135. That will leave me a spare board in Copal-0, not a bad thing I guess...

I can carry a minimal kit (I have the Fuji 150 and 90), 4 holders and a meter in a Domke 802, and my tripod kit at a very light weight. However I did order a Patagonia Refugio as my "hiking" carry, I'm thinking it will allow me to carry just enough to be fully functional and productive, yet not overloaded.

I got the maple purely because it's so beautiful, even though teak has better dimensional stability. I plan to keep the wood well protected (regular refinishing) so as to avoid any issues. And well, I'm Canadian ... so maple just seemed so right.

Right now I'm looking for a short "telephoto" for LF/4x5 portraits. I'd love the Fuji 240A, but it's just too spendy.

I think the teak is darker than the maple, is it not?

I am looking to add a 300mm 5.6 Fuji and a 65mm 4.5 Grandagon at some point...

and now for something completely different (with apologies to Monty Python)

- a Panny 20/1.7 for my lensless G2 (I got the body with a bonus genuine battery at a killer price so I thought "why not?") I would have preferred the 25/1.4 but B&H sold out in less than 24h and I don't want to wait another 6 months for them to become available again at RRP (as opposed to the gougers on ebay, or even worse, buying one locally for $800...)

- B+W 46-52mm step-up ring for the above so I can use my existing filters and spare lens caps

- a Lexar Professional 1000x 32GB CF card for the 5DIII. From the tests I've read these things are like a supercharger for your camera if you have the right body (the camera, not me! )

- yet another Leica 14312 strap (I just love these things - this one will go on the G2)

BTW has anyone here seem/held or bought a Chamonix Saber? That thing looks like the business...
