Entered Canon RF with a good deal on a VT
I just thought I would share this with you all. I am a Leica/Konica user mostly, but I have always admired the Canon line. My local store had a good deal on a Canon VT kit. I went in a couple of times and debated myself: "Should I tell RF forum, or just buy it myself?" Well, sorry, I bought it. It is a Canon VT in great shape (speeds accurate, finder bright, everything in good working order (at least it appears to be...I will test tonight). It came with the leather everyready case in perfect shape (no rot or anything) and both a 35/1.8 and 100mm/3.5 in awesome condition with its case. The 100 does not look like it has been used at all, and the 35 has a view cleaning marks, but is really very clean. It also came with the funky bulb style flash, and the case for the flash. The whole kit was on consignment for 500 dollars. Seeing as I have seen the 100mm lens alone go for 250 in worse condition than the one that I got, I figured it was a great deal. Even if I decide I don't like it, I can surely sell it, probably at a profit. I am looking forward to joining the dark side...
In any case, here are some pics:
