I hated my Canon A-1. The damn thing had a calculator stuck in the VF!

When I was still an undergraduate biology student, I took an ecology field course to study fresh water fish in Trinidad. I took along my Pentax ME with a 17-40something Tokina zoom lens. Other cameras that I remember that were brought by other participants were a Leica IIIa, a Konica FS-1, and a Minolta XK. I remember being impressed by the motor drive in the FS-1 and in the sheer mass of the XK. On an afternoon off, a group of us drove to an ocean beach, where some locals "befriended" us and the the Minolta XK got stolen. Our bus driver explained this was a common scheme.

Since then I have acquired a Konica FS-1 and very recently a Minolta XK. Coincidence? I think not. Cameras which we had brief exposure to in our past, often end up in our future.

I wanted to attach a pic of the XK but I have already done so in another post, and the forum software won't let me attach it ever again!

Two things you can do:

(1) Modify the image slightly. Make it 1 px smaller and the forum software won't recognize it. Bit of wastage, though.

(2) You can reuse the image you attached to the other post. Open the other post, then open the image attachment. Copy the image's URL into the clipboard. Then write a new post here, use the image icon and paste the attachment URL. The image will show in the post here (inline, not as an attachment).

Concerning the Rolleiflex SL-35. Go to Captain Jacks Rolleiflex Sl-35/Voigtlander website. He is selling off much of his collection. Their all in either Mint, Mint-, or Exc+++ condition. He has cameras, lenses, and accessories available.

Happy Hunting!!

I have a Canon A1 myself, much like the black AE 1 that starts this thread. W/ a 50 1.4 lens it is the most beautiful SLR I have ever owned, to my eyes. I also sold mine years ago and bought another one recently. Just the sound of the shutter is pleasing to my ears. Of all the cameras I've owned, ithis is the one that consistently gets good remarks from strangers on the street. I wish Canon had figured a way to make an auto focus camera just like the A1, but w/ the FD lenses it wouldn't be possible. My other SLR love is a crusty old Nikon 8008s. It's viewfinder is bigger and brighter than the A1, and it has a much, much faster top shutter speed. It's metering is perfect . But I just love that A1, and it takes fine pics. With the 1.4 lens I can shoot in really low light. Great camera. Sorry, no pictures as the Digital P&S is having it's batteries charged. Everyone knows what these things look like I suppose.

My M42-mount Voigtländer Bessaflex. Doesn't get a lot of use 'cos I'm not really a big SLR fan, but it's a really nice camera and a great match to the 35mm Zeiss Flektogon (best M42 lens of the 20th century?)

Isn't the OM1 cool? I like the above shot. Good job.

and i also had for a year a olympus OM1 with 50mm f/1.8 lens with I shoot also in a
cave with a Tmax 3200 and only the light of our head-lamps.
then i bought an eos 5 to use the same lenses as my 10d.
it's not the same thing..

also because with little euros i have a nice kit, in expansion in future.

i think that if the OM1n takes my heart.. the eos5 will only be good to be sold.

i love om system and zuikos.

I realize these are crummy pictures, but it's 11:30 at night and my 10 month old daughter wakes up crying when I put her down, so I'm working with one hand. Still, they serve the purpose: here's my A-1! I would really say that this is my "main" camera as I just bought the Fujica Auto-M a few weeks ago. I'm also trying to get from my brother an old Fujica SLR that I've wanted for years; part of the reason I bought the Auto-M.

I have already shown an 'Evil SLR' on this thread, but I couldn't resist after cjm said on another thread said that the MX was SO small. Look at the one on the right, it weighs a little more than the Canon Mark II d-whatever, and is just a little bigger.

Here's two "buddies", my all-time favorite SLR and my current "workhorse"
The Chinon CM-3 is my M42 camera and although it doesn't have the sleek size and lines of the OM-1, it's a very robust, reliable, and fun to use.

I recently acquired a Fujica ST705 from another RFF member, which I have paired with a Pentax Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 50mm 1.4 lens. This camera, which is about the same size as a Leica M RF camera, makes a nice, inexpensive walkaround kit.
