Yesterday my buddy in Ukraine emailed me that yes he did get his $ but the gear wont ship until Tuesday or Wednesday. Dang!
Oh well, I do have the turret finder I bought from him sitting on top of my Zorki so I can pretend I am using either of the lenses that are on their way to me.
Two more lenses after this deal and I will have a complete kit and no need to buy anything more
Actually I feel a need to get a functional
J-8 LTM lens as the one that I got with the Zorki was taken apart and reassembled badly before I got it and doesn't focus where the RF does.
So the kit is shaping up nicely. Right now it is: Zorki 3m and FED2 bodies with two 50mm lenses-Industar 26m and Industar 50 colapsable. Yellow filter for both lenses and an orange for the I-26. Soon(OK, not soon enough but on the way. Really.) I will have Jupiter 12 and 9 lenses.
I am just about ready to start rebuilding the Zorki 3m I got from Sockeyed and if that goes well I will have it instead of the FED in the bag.
There really is a plan. And it is slowly coming together!
Of course I don't own a 35mm SLR so I might
have to start thinking about that lack and what I should do about it.
Those 167 MT-s are looking pretty good but the lenses are pricey!
Sigh.. at least I'm not spending my $ on beer and hookers any more
