The R2S kinda reminds me of a Citroen 2CV... it gets the job done just fine, but is a bit painful to look at

As soon as it doesn't remind you the Citroen Ami 6, which was the only car to be marketed after the road crash...

same time. Hey they were fun to drive.

Yeah, right!

Lovely camera, though. Wonder which lens you'll buy first.

Thanks guys. The seller was very careful to describe every nick and mark so when it arrived and cleaned up it was a lovely surprise. Actually more of a shooter would have been better Still it has enough marks not to be babied.

As to glass A 10.5cm is on it's way, I love that glass on the F2 and it is in the finder after all.

I did warn Chris about the Nikon virus - it is contagious. You first innocently start with a S2 and a 50 (or S3 and a 50) and suddenly you have a multitude of cameras and lenses - with no idea how it happened! Well, at least Chris is a user too - soon the Olympic will carry the brassy battle scars that a Nikon Rf craves!

Of course, not to be outdone by Chris (innocently, as I did not know about Olympic #6 at the time), I picked up a black S3 in Tokyo last week. Number is correct #6307458 - but it is a "hybride" as it has the Apollo film-advance, a Millennium rewind crank and for some obscure reason (literally and figuratively) a S4 finder (or possibly a S3 finder with the 35 frame removed. Works fine anyway - and rangefinders were never about "perfect" framing anyway.

Hey everybody. New here and after looking at the photos, would recommend a possible calender of some of the great cameras of our time.
Just a thought.
