    First of all, I live in Germany. That means, trades can become very costly if you want to trade some small things only and live in the USA or Japan. If you are in Europe this problem is almost neglectable. The more you want to trade the smaller is the problem with shipping costs and customs fees :smile:

    Here is what I have:

    35mm SLR systems:

    - Canon EF L 17-35, boxed, with caps
    - For EOS: Novoflex BALCAN-AF bellows - the only bellows for EOS cameras that has an electronic aperture transmission and automatic diaphragma, signs of use are hard to find
    - Four Leica R4 bodies, one of them seems to be dead, one is still in its plastic container and looks very well
    - Leica R 2/50
    - Leica R 3,5-4,5/28-70; focusing ring is a bit stiff if the lens is set between 50 and 70mm

    - Olympus OM1 /w 1.8/50 and 3,5/135
    - Olympus OM 3.5/50 Macro and a 25mm ring

    - Tamron SP adaptall 8/500 mirror lens, the better "BBAR" version with a Nikon mount ring

    - Canon FD 2/35
    - Caon FD 2,8/200 with a stuck aperture

    Rangefinders:

    - Leica M3 double stroke with Elmar 3.5/50, fully working, lens in great state, plus a defective Leicameter as a gift
    - Yashica 35CC and 35 GX (the two rare beauties)
    - Olympus 35RD, stuck shutter (all of them have this problem, repair is easy, but I didn't do it yet)
    - Canon VT deluxe, 1958 version with cloth shutter, fully working, but a lot of signs of use
    - Canon 2/35 M39, the "japanese Summicron", CLA'd, no scratches or fungus, but a lot of signs of use on the barrel
    - Canon 2/100 M39, CLA'd, a stellar lens, very few and light signs of use only, with hood
    - Canon 3,5/135 M39, CLA'd with hood, few and light signs of use only

    Half format and 110 film cameras:

    - Olympus Pen EED, fully working

    - Three Olympus Pen FT bodies with five lenses
    20, 25, 38, 100, 50-90 - the ones underlined were CLA'd some months ago, one FT body was overhauled. Light meters in all cameras work, all shutters work.

    - Two big Pentax Auto 110 sets with 28 Kodak films:
    2 camera bodies
    1 winder
    2 original strobes
    1 original leather bag
    1 original gift box
    2 18mm
    2 24mm
    1 50mm
    1 70mm
    1 20-40 with caps and rubber hood
    1 rubber hood
    1 wrist strap
    1 close-up lens S31
    1 close-up lens S16
    1 skylight filter
    All caps except 1 rear lens cap
    2 camera manuals
    1 winder manual
    1 strobe manual
    1 lenses manual
    Everything works - I used it.

    Medium format:

    - Paramender, screens und sports finder masks for Mamiya 220/330

    - Mamiya Six (the one from the 50s), CLA'd
    - Yashica Mat 124 G, CLA'd, with the original black leather case.


    Large format

    - Linhof Color w Symmar 150mm/270mm, six film holders, dark cloth, loupe

    Accessories

    - Gossen Mastersix lightmeter
    - Gossen Profi-Spot, the big spot metering attachment for the professional Gossen lightmeters
    - Metz 32CT3 with the big grip and bracket G15
    - Berlebach Report ahswood tripod with head

    Odds and ends

    - Zeiss Jena Tessar 2,8/50, screwmount, but I don't know for which camera system

    ---

    WANTED:

    - Nikon lenses non-AI, AI or AIs, or even AF lenses
    - Nikon F and F2 bodies, Photomics, accessories
    - Nikon FM3a body
    - Leica M lenses, M5, M6, M7, MP bodies
    - A big Nova print processor
    - Canon EF primes and 'L' lenses
    - Rolleiflex medium format cameras (post-war only)
    - Rollei/Voigtländer QBM mount lenses
    - Gitzo carbon tripods
    - 'anything Hassy'
    - Contarex lenses

    OR

    - anything else you think I might like, not necessarily photo equipment :wink:

    PS: I am not interested in P&S cameras, AF cameras, lenses or cameras with fungus, significant defects, cleaning marks or scratches on lenses, and computer games.

    The Tamron SP 500/8: I'm a little confused by the "BBAR" description, as both the early and late ones had BBAR coating. Do you mean that the one you have have is the later BB version, the one without the tripod collar, rather than the original B version?

    Thanks for that... it's the earlier version with the tripod collar in fact, comes with filters and case.

    That's the version I have. I prefer it for the tripod collar. The later BB version was changed optically to provide better close-focus performance (from what I understand), but I don't worry about it. It focuses to 1:3 but there are generally better options for getting that magnification.

    There is some more:

    - Minolta XG2 & MD Rokkor 1.4/50
    - Tokina Close Focusing Zoom 3,5/35-105 for Contax/Yashica
    - Nikon F4 & MB-21 & MF-23 back - a great camera, but too complicated for me
    - Nikkor AF 2,8/35-70 - too 'AF' for me ;-)

    BTW, the Canon FD 2/35mm is the second "Thorium" chrome nose version, serial # 13329.

    I do not seek Nikon bodies and zooms any more.

    Here are some images of the Mamiya Six... guess how I found out that there's a film inside:

    6846706757_1389935b23_b.jpg

    6846708599_56d4007c02_b.jpg

    6846709571_57be14680b_b.jpg

    6846710487_31fac3a4bd_b.jpg

    The camera was CLA'd by Will van Manen. Some leather was replaced by a shoemaker. I used this camera, it's fully working.

    BTW, it's a Mamiya Six version IV, built between 1947 and 1953.

    Wound it on and looked through the window in the back?... or the other method!

    I like the look of the Mamiya but I don't think I have anything worth trading.
