Sometimes I wish Forums Bulletin Boards had like buttons. Thanks Huubl.

And boy is that Alpa nice. Shame they are stratospherically expensive.

The Canon EF was my first in 1976. An awesome machine. The range of time exposures made for fun. It can take a beating too. Thanks for these photos. You'll enjoy it I'm sure.

Thanks Akiva! I know you are quite fond of the F, I was really excited to find this one, it is a joy to shoot with. I find that I definitely prefer the plain prism to the FTN finder that I also have, I haven't tested it with batteries but it's so clean I presume the meter works. I just like the profile of the camera better with the plain prism, and the absolutely empty viewfinder is incredibly refreshing.

That R6 posted above sure is lovely looking! I would love to try an R series someday.

The Canon EF is a wonderful FD series camera. I had one myself, the electronics were fried, but all the mechanical speeds worked great and it was a sturdy and reliable camera.

Canon EF

[IMG][/IMG]

...some of my favorite fav's


[IMG][/IMG]

...one of my Canon EF's

The EF has long been a favorite of mine, it having the same hefty feel of the first Canon F-1 & F-1n. The EF was IMHO one of the first dedicated "existing light" cameras (1973-78), with the capability of 30 second automated exposures. This long exposure capability blew the socks off my previous long auto-exposure favorites, the Pentax ES & ESII.
The Pentax ES & ESII are another pair of cameras from the early 70's (ES 1971-73, ESII 1973-75) distinguished by having automated exposures out to 8 seconds. They also have surprisingly bright & un-cluttered viewfinders compared to the competition of their day, housed in a relatively compact & light weight camera body.
Now the Nikon F & F2 are another story...

I seem to have awoken a latent admiration for the EF. Happy to have done so. It is a wonderful handling camera, the one caveat I have found is the rather clumsy DoF preview when in AE mode. Oh, and the winder is so smooth (and strong) it can easily rip the film from the end of the roll if not careful

Hi maitani, thanks. It is the Schneider Xenon 50mm f1.9 auto later model. In terms of sharpness it is not very far behind the famed Alpa Kern 50/1.9 AR.

D300/17-55 is a good combination - served me well for a while.
