Man walks down the street with a camera like that, and people know he's not afraid of anything.

Nikon 80-200mm f4.5 AI. One touch. Arguably the first zoom that showed a zoom can deliver pro-level results. $1800 in its day adjusted for inflation. All metal construction, still a worthy lens today. Clean optics, KEH "BGN" -- $59, shipped. This lens still simply delivers and is a true bargain. Brick outhouses claim they're built like this lens. Not a zoom guy but wanted one for my Nikon to complete the kit. Wanted max optical quality/min cost. Chose this. Am pleased. There were three versions of this lens, the last being an f4 version. The second version of the 4.5 has a rectangular baffle on the rear element and is supposed to be the best, albeit marginally. The f4 version gets mixed review. I say, with a 40 yo lens, buy based on condition, especially optics. No haze, no fungus, etc. Bypass the gear roulette wheel that is eBay, and go with KEH (or similar) for a lens that's been professionally inspected, rated by a business that has a reputation to protect, offers good customer service and return policy.

Added a few box cameras to the family, an Agfa Synchro box that might be 120 but has squinty little viewfinder windows and a brownie E that looks new ... I have re-rolled some film onto 620 spools and sometine soon it will be in use.
Thinking about a Flexaret V11 from cupog GAS is fun

Every 5-7 years I spend 12-18 months blowing what I'm using. Leica M ---> top end Leica M ----> Leica R ----> to now just having less of any one thing and building more variety, with an emphasis on older lenses (better for B&W). Stunned at the affordability and quality of everything not beginning with the letter "L". Maybe I spent that last two decades walking down the wrong path.

My mother picked me up an EOS 3000 SLR at a thrift store for $5. Over the phone, I asked her which lens it had on it, and told her it would say something like 28-80mm or 35-70mm.

She said "38-76"

Thinking she had no idea what she was talking about because I had never heard of that lens, I told her I will see when she gives it to me.

Sure enough, she gave it to me yesterday and it had on it... a 38-76mm lens.

Mother knows best.

I bought 2 boxes of "3xLomo 110 Tiger 200" film from WEX. It was a bit of a struggle with a long story which I won't go into, but it worked out in the end. Here's a pic:

Bought two replacement rubber belts for my vintage Imacon Photo scanner. Current ones are still good but I thought it best to stock up on an extra pair now that they still can be had. Found them on eBay.

A Univex Mercury II that looks good but I don't know if it works properly (but with an accordingly nice price). And also a custom made adaptor for 104 format camera (to 120), and 500 ml of R09 "rodinal" developer.

I bought a third box of "3x Lomo 110 tiger 200" film. I got this one from an ebay seller based in Hong Kong. It arrived today - 6 days before the earliest 'expected' date,and I ordered it less than 2 weeks ago and I only paid 1.50 p+p! The box itself cost 19.60 which is a little above the list price of 16.90.

Edit: I've just checked what date I ordered it and it's less than a week before it arrived from Hong Kong, using no special delivery or anything!

I just purchased some Nikon F stuff. Two items surprised. An F with an eye level prism is like a totally different camera from one with a big, clunky meter head. Smaller, lighter, much more practical in my mind. Never liked my first go-round with Nikon stuff, but they were all metered. Second surprise was just how affordable -- as in dirt cheap. -- this stuff sells. Lenses in the 50-100 range! Cameras with the desired plain prism for 150. Great values. We'll see if they catch on this time round.

I bought a couple of Lomo 110 Tiger 200 films. Here's a pic:



I've got 11 tiger 200 films now.

I may even buy some more. I think I'm going overboard with it.

Fuji X-T2 plus battery grip. I have (most of) an X-T1, but it's time for an update; and with an X-E2s taking care of some of my compact-carry needs I can now enjoy some of the performance enhancements the battery grip brings.
