Not really liking the shutter release. The rubber boot for water resistance dulls the break point and needs more effort, so much so I much prefer the release on my F2. I'm hoping I get used to it.

Pentax K-5 with 28/2.8, 35/2.8, 50/2, 100/2.8. 135/2.5. I am a relapsed Pentaxian. Those M-series lenses are all well under $100 apiece on ebay. Too good to pass up.

They are a lot of fun and offer very interesting photographic possibilities. On FM there is a drone photography thread with some amazing pictures. Drone shot panoramics can be incredible.

Came across 2 Leica CL 50 Jahre, both in their boxes, unfilled out warranty cards, all the accessories included. Both look like brand new and never used. Inserted battery with the CRIS adapter and both fired up and meter correctly. Time to shoot some film.

Picked up a NICE 35mm f2 this weekend via Craigslist.

Came attached to a Silver FM2 with a dented prism, anyone shopping for a working FM2 which needs work?

The weekend flea markets yielded two cameras from 1952;
An Agfa Record III with 105mm f/4.5 Solinar (that needed a relube)
An Ultra-FEX (which still had an unused roll of kodacolor in it)

A mechanically sound Voigtlander Nokton 50mm 1.5, with great glass, and a paint work with an even cooler patina

Minolta W.Rokkor-X 17mm 1:4 in very nice clean condition inside and out.
Does anyone have experience with this lens?

Looking at zwicko's haul, and xlmike's Nokton, I'm almost a little reluctant to say I picked up a Konica Auto S2 yesterday. How do you follow those?

The S2 is still a little grimy, but I cleaned the glass, loaded a battery, and checked the meter, and they check out. The aperture adjusts, so I loaded some film, and I'll give it a try. I'll post a picture after I get the exterior cleaned up.

A Think Tank Switch - Just the size for my daily essentials + X-T2 with 18 to 135 mm zoom attached, batteries, etc.

No justification, it was on sale, and I wanted an alternative to the Eddy Bauer canvas bag I've used as my daily carry for perhaps 30 years.

I just got back from the Yodobashi Camera store (Yokohama) with a brand new Sigma Sd Quattro "H" camera body. It's still in the box, battery needs charging, all the setting up needs to be set up, I need this camera like I need a hole in the head, and... I'm as happy as can be!

I'll be out tomorrow seeing what's what about it.

Just bought this nice little Minolta for $20, it's in pretty good condition apart from two hairline cracks on the grip. Other than those cracks everything works just as it should, i really like this camera. Can't wait to put some film through it. I almost bought the baby beercan, but i wanna see how this one performs first.

Tokina 3.5/17 (as a wide angle for my Nikons and my Sony A7II)

Rodenstock 1:1.3 56mm lens, already adapted to Fuji and Sony mirrorless. Fun lens. Call it "Dreamotar".

Picked up a $210 Nikkor 8.5cm ltm. I've been curious about the lens for a long time and couldn't pass up a chance to try it at this price.

The images of it don't show the serial number but its an f/16 which sounds like its from one of the slightly earlier batches.
