Went to a Jewelry/Pawn closing and estate sale. Picked up a Chinon Bellami for $10. Has a small crack on external viewfinder, and mild wear. But, it had good batteries in it, and everything seems to be working. With user manual, but, no flash.

Lacking rangefinder, the Bellami is more like a Minox 35 GL, rather than Olympus XA.

I must say, the wind-lever-operated barn door mechanism seems a likely cause of eventual failure.

Succumbed and bought a 50mm Summitar f2 with early aperture settings for my III.

Now just need to wait for delivery as the shop has a week off!
Film amateur with a few rangefinders - Leica III, M2/M3, Werra 3 and Zeiss Super Ikonta 534/16 medium format.

Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Hasselblad 500cm, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

Oh boy, it's been a good month. Bought one of Stephen's new CV21 f3.5 lenses, and yet another M9, replacing the one with the bad sensor that I sold. I thought I could do without one but I seem to have been wrong......

I have been following the thread on Takumar lenses with great enthusiasm.

I already had two Spotmatics (a II and an F), an H1a, and four Takumar lenses, but inspired by the thread I bought the following:

1. An 85mm 1.9 Super Takumar, with original lens caps and lens hood (my favorite focal length, already arrived) and

2. A 105mm 2.8 Super Multi-Coated Takumar, with original lens caps, lens hood, and hard leather case (on its way).

Now, I just need a CLA for the Spotmatic II (passed down from my father) and I'll have a Pentax kit to vie with my Minoltas and TLRs.

Still shooting film: Medium Format with assorted TLRs; 35mm with manual-focus Minolta SLRs and a Canonet.

One LTM-M4/3 adapter and one M-M4/3 adapter. Can't have too many of them.
