    Lesser known than the otherwise serviceable Cooke Hobson lenses, but quite nice, I hear.

    I'll give you $10 for it.

    Just yesterday at a flea market;

    A Gossen Luna Pro. Checked it out with a couple of #675 zinc air batteres and readings were right on, less than 1/3 stop difference compared to my digital SLR and a Gossen Pilot.

    Total price, $15

    Sorry, traded it for a nice Sekonic meter.

    Why am I not finding opportunities like this? It is not for lack of looking.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Just picked an Olympus Stylus 120 with two rolls of Fuji Superia 400 film for the outrageous sum of one dollar. They wanted two bucks, but I held firm at one, and got it. The battery was dead in it, and I thought I would have to buy a new one, but found a spare in the case with it. Running a test roll through it now. Flash works, seems to fire correctly and advance the film as it should, we'll see.

    Nikkormat, Nikkor 50mm f/2, Tamron 28mm f/2.5 Adaptall 2 that focuses to 10" and stops down to f/32, and a monster Vivitar Series 1 135mm f/2.3. The camera's meter is shaky, but usable. There is a touch of fungus in a few of the more accessible lens elements. All for $12.98 in a Land's End case.

    My "finds" come few and far between. And besides $15 for the older Luna Pro is not a steal, OK but not great. My last find was more than 2 years ago when I found a "jammed" Canon QL17 GIII also for $15. Really clean externally I found they had it set on 'auto' with no battery installed and naturally the shutter would not release. I took a chance that the meter was ok and when I walked the few blocks home tried it out with a #675 hearing aid battery and the meter functioned correctly. Of course I had already checked the manual control and found it within nominal limits.

    So keep searching, go early after opening, check often and you'll have a better chance of a good find.
