    Olympus 35RC, 35RD and 35SP
    Contax IIIa (dead)
    Ricoh 500, 500G
    Yashica GS, GSN
    Konica S2
    Walz Envoy 35, M35
    Minolta A
    Canter Beauty
    Taron 19
    7 Canonet 17 GIIIs (which will hopefully make 5 working cameras)
    ...and about a dozen other less interesting cameras for $100

    For me, the Olympus cameras were the big find. I'd been looking for the RD and RC... the SP was a nice bonus. most of the other cameras I'll probably clean up, shoot a roll or two to see what they can do and sell (hopefully mostly friends). I've heard good things about the Walz Envoy but don't know if I can deal with the coupled aperture/shutter speed.

    Hopefully that will cover the cost of a CLA for the RD and SP. I can't bring myself to work on those cameras.

    Would have to be either my 50mm lens for my RB67 for $110, which works perfectly, or my Koni-Omega rapid in almost new condition for $150.

    I got a nice LPL C7700 out of the classifieds here for £50 and I'm very happy with it.

    But my best deal; a Contax II in a trade for ten Marlboro Lights.

    Good heavens, are you serious??

    I picked up a Contax RX for $150. A friend told me to buy it ASAP (I didn't know much about Contax at the time.) Nice camera, works perfectly.
    Picked up a "junk" RTS for $25. The LEDs won't light up above 1/15, but everything else works perfectly.

    Well, the Beseler Dichroic 67 I found at the dump was the cheapest, but I consider the 16 1/2" Dagor I got for $50 the best deal.

    I recently received a DeVere 54 enlarger from someone on another forum. I paid £30 towards the £43 it actually cost to post it and gave thye other person som Mamiya TLR bits and pieces I had in a drawer. And I have also just received a Schneider Componon 150mm lens for it from an APUG member for just the postage cost.

    Here are my little treasures. At an fleamarket I picked up a minox 35 gt for € 3,00. The guy wanted 5 for but I asket if three was ok. Bakc home it seems to be working perfectly. I have got a roll in it now.
    Also I picket up a dusty Polaroid sx-10 for €10,-. Seems to be ok but don't have a film for it yet.

    I am very pleased.

    My Rollei 2.8C, purchased mint in box in 1980. $400 with case, a couple of filters, closeup lens and lens shade. It has never failed and the shutter speeds are still spot-on. It went into the shop once when one of the exterior knobs became loose and I didn't have proper tools to fix it. Sharp lens, reliable, great image quality. At $13.33/year over 30 years, it's the best buy I ever made.
