Show me your Canon RF camera

Why is there no thread here showing Canon RF's like in the other forums?
Are they not worthy?

I was wandering the same thing.
Here's my Canon 7 that I got recently here on RFF. I really like this set up.

Here is one of my Canon P's with a black 50mm/1.2 lens that Johan in NL might recognise ;-) I'm a SLR guy these days but I still think Canon P is the greatest:

My Canon 7 which since this summer also has a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens. The 85mm f/1.9 is a bit long (and heavy) to carry every day, but I should try to use it more.

You should give that cat some extra kibble tonight for dinner for keeping that so clean while being dragged in.

This is my first post here. Please bear with me.
Can one of the one of the experts here point me to the correct thread for my lens? I need to determine if it is a original J mount.
Thanks!!

Here's a Canon and his Cousin, the Nicca 3S (Tower 43) and my original QL17. Nicca later became Yashica but was founded by Engineers from Canon.

The one thing I didn't like about the QL17, Richard, was that when it's put in Manual, the meter shuts off. So I gave mine away. If I had learned the Sunny-16 method before that, I'd probably still have it. It was a great looking camera, and produced really nice results.

Get another one Phil, they're dirt cheap on eBay right now. Plus you can always use the meter in auto then turn it to manual to compensate

What a superb camera, and thank you for a very educational set of pictures.

I can't answer whether or not the lens is one of the originals, but you have found the right place to ask about it.

Hi easiest way to determine a "J" thread camera is to try and fit a Leica m39 lens to the SK S-II body. If it doesn't fit then it is a J thread camera body. There should be no MIOJ marking on the baseplate.

Thanks for the reply. I was able to mount a 1960's era Canon 135mm easily to the body. So I think it is safe to say the body is an m39 mount. There is no marking of MIOJ on the base plate.
Another person is interest in knowing if the Nikkor has the J mount thread. It doesn't mount nearly as easy as the 135 did. I'll have to swing by the Nikon RF guys and see if they have any insight.

I plan to some day. It's just not at the top of the priority list right now, Richard.

Canon 7 at home and at work.

At home: 7 with early Novoflex (Muller) mirror box and Xenar 135/4.5 with focusing mount. Found the Novoflex mirror box on Craigslist, came with a Novoflex LTM bellows as well as the lens. Without the bellows the setup will focus to infinity.

At work: 7 with 50/1.2 and eBay hood waiting for a wedding to begin. Lot more secure than the factory hood although doesn't look as nice. Arista Premium 400 loaded up in this pict.
