    Nice 85/1.8 lens and a great looking F (I notice the newer style self-timer).

    Oh... and a Volvo 240 series... I'd recognize that anywhere. I wonder if they still give out high-mileage plaques.

    Thanks, yeah, it's a 7405xxx serial F.

    You can get the high mileage club badges, but they're now "Heritage Club" badges that go on the trunk or the tailgate of the car, instead of the grille. The car is a '92 245... One of three 240's we own. The other two are turbo models. A 1982 242 Turbo and a 1984.5 245 Turbo.

    Anyway, picked up a focusing screen and a body cap for the 500EL/M. Probably going to return the charger and the batteries to Camera Clinic, then pick up one of the Fotodiox CR-P2 battery adapters. That way, I don't have to use the NiCad batteries anymore.

    A waterproof anti static dust cover for my film scanner, because I don't use it often and I'm sick of dusting it.

    Just today a Nikon F3HP with an MD-4 motor drive and 35-200mm lens.

    It will be delivered tomorrow.

    And several Nikon L37C UV filters. Get 'em while you can.

    The R8 is an awesome camera, i have 2 and shoot it loads.

    The really cool R glass does get expensive, although not as bad as M.

    True. Luckily the 5 R lenses I purchased in the last 10 years is all I need in 35mm.
    German-made zooms and APO lenses are out of my reach.

    I love the R8's clever program mode. Nice viewfinder, too.

    The viewfinder is a bit more then 'nice' i would say :smile:

    Combined with the 80mm f/1.4 its one of the best combinations in 35mm!

    A rara avis among Nikon lenses. Physically beautiful. I saw one last year but did not buy it because I own its predecessor, the 28-45/4.5 AI.

    Thanks. I believe it will balance the F5 and pair well with my 50-135 f3.5 aiS.

    Simply the best viewfinder experience! I don't have the 80mm Summilux but a 90mm f/2 Summicron.

    Two more lenses for my OM2n: the 135/2.8 (with built-in extendable hood) and 85/2:

    IMAG8409-1.jpg

    My other OM lenses are 28/2, 50/1.4, and 100/2.8. I've heard the 100/2 is exceptional, but I'm unlikely to find one (I don't use eBay), so I decided to get the 100/2.8 that was available at the moment and enjoy it.

    Good choice of lenses. I do not own 100mm f/2.8 yet (presume, I may never own one ;-)) but 135mm f/2.8 is a stunner (Just an amazing lens indeed). I may also recommend 28mm f/3.5

    A 20 inch /508mm (approx) Rapid Rectilinear lens for my 12"x10" camera, it'll easily cover 15"x12" and almost 20"x16" unfortunately without a flange.

    Luckily I have a box of assorted flanges and the lens matched one perfectly, optically the lens is in excellent condition although it needed cleaning. To get an ide of size here's the camera & lens along with a Houghton Victo Quarter plate camera.
