In recent years (amazingly), I've been quite specific about what I want in terms of gear, and tend not to waste my time on stuff I'm not keen on buying (though there have been exceptions, such as that wild and chunky electronic-shutter Leica M prototype with a starting bid from somewhere north of US$23,000; I just had to see how that one ended, and wound up sharing the drama with fellow RFf'ers). The things I normally look for these days are:
- Konica Impresa 50 35mm film
- Oddball RF lens hoods (for my Konica M-Hex 50 f/2 and Auto S3; both found)
In these cases, I actually go the extra half-mile and create custom searches with e-mail alerts. In fact, I have practically everything I need (I got the ultrawide I wanted, delivered in my hands yesterday, via the 'Bay). More about in another thread, as soon as I finish this.
