OT: Oly Pen EE question, and seeking more general advice.
My GAS has got weird lately. I've got my M2, and a line-up of glass I'm happy with. Maybe even one lens too many (I'm considering letting the CV 75 go since I shoot maybe half a dozen frames with it every six months). Bessa R is there for backup. MF has the Autocord and the SQ-A.
So as I'm reaching satisfaction I'm struck by weirdo GAS. I've just bought a couple of old Polaroid folding RFs (loads of fun, by the way), and looking for another one or two, when I have a sudden craving for half-frame goodness.
I handled a very clean Pen EE today, dealer asking GBP40 which seemed high at the time but a little net research leads me to conclude it's not too far off the pace after all. Comes with a 6 month warranty, as well.
My question: with it's weird fixed shutter speed, and meter only up to ASA 200, is it possible to use the "for flash" aperture settings to get some kind of shutter-priority manual operation? My guess would be yes, which would make some faster film viable by the by. Any users care to comment?
Also, I really fancy a Pen F. Ffordes have one, with lens, for GBP125. I'm having trouble pinning down a normal kind of price for these - how does that sound?
