    My wife has instructed me to write it was her, but at the time when were married in the mid 1960s a marriage licence cost the same as a dog licence, I think I made The right choice in this case, she was much quicker to house train.

    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.
