    It is also my understanding that Petri's are difficult to repair and that parts are few and far between. Fortunately, I don't make my living with this so if/when it dies I'll just keep it for the fond memories. All my little rangefinder really needs is a good CLA to remove ancient lubricant; I was going to send it off this past winter but for some reason never got around to it.

    2x Contax 139Q, one used from time to time, the other being kept as a backup
    1x Contax S2, used almost every day (a recent acquisition)
    3x Contax RTS II (of which one is currently disassembled and awaiting assembly), all used more or less regularly
    1x Contax RX (currently disassembled due to a small flash-related problem), to be used intensively in the future
    2x Yashica FX-D, never used (hopefully to be used by my daughter when she grows up slightly)
    1x Yashica FX-3, rarely used
    1x Practica Nova, never used and never to be used
    1x Zenith EM, never used and never to be used
    1x Zenith E, never used and never to be used
    1x Minolta Hi-Matic F, never used, at least at the moment
    1x Praktica BX20, never used but will be shortly
    2x Pentax 645, one is used regularly, the other is kept as a backup
    1x Pentax K-x, used every day

    I could probably do with one Contax RTS II, the S2 and one Pentax 645, but I feel that I need redundancy in case anything goes wrong that I can't fix. The K-x is a very nice thing to have, but digital hasn't enthused me. I take it as a necessity nowadays, like a computer or mobile phone.

    If I ever get my hands on a 110 cartridge, I think I'll definitely use the Pocket Instamatic 300. Apparently it has a 3 element Kodak Anastigmat, which is pretty good for a camera of it's class.
    I also might see if I can pick up a Petri Bayonet-M42 adaptor, seeing as M42s are going cheap at the moment, and Petris are a lot harder to find.
