Recently I bought a lot of fim on ebay. I put in some silly low bids on some large lots and actually won. I know have three shoe boxes full of cheap fim. I have been using this film to give my rangefinder collection a run through.

I found the Canon shots to be especially nice.
Nice glass on that one.

Same impression to me, the moods are well captured with de GIII.
Great lens, at least equal to the Contax T on these pictures.
What kind of film did you use ? I guess Superia 400.

There would have been some Fed 1 photos but the lab hadn't developed them. They said the film was torn. I pulled out the whole long Leica cut leader and then asked them to develop it. Although I like the siz of camera with a 3.5 lens but it is too inconvenient.

Hello, I have a Contax T that is working, but the back door / camera back has problems: one of the silver rails that presses the film pressure plate down is missing, and the door lock is broken.

If someone has a dead Contax T with a good back door assembly, I would like to buy it. Black or silver model is fine, and I don't care about cosmetics, as long as it is mechanically fine.

THANKS!
