Don't see this often!

For any who might want to drool over their keyboard, these do exist. They are real. But you seldom hear of them, much less see them for sale. a lens with f/0.95. Actually, I seem to remember a Leica with a f/0.90.

Anyway, try http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...811154508&rd=1

You might want to get a wash cloth first.

Beautiful camera. Not often you see this camera without wrinkles in the shutters. Very nice.

And yes - drool indeed !
My favorite RF cameras right now:
Leica III (F), Leica M3 and Contax IIIa

Zeiss made some 50 mm f/0.7 lenses for NASA - I wonder if anyone would mount one of those to a Fed 2?

I like mine; and even have the fitted case for it. But usually I keep the Nikkor or Canon F1.4 on the cameras. I have the RF version for the Canon 7 and the TV version for an Infrared Camera at work. At work, we used a 1/10,000th Watt laser hooked up to a single mode fiber like a flashlight.

Wide Open and close-up; F0.95.
