    That is a hell of a deal - I'm looking at $150 outlay to get a Maxwell for my SL66.

    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!

    Hey there Mike, please post more from the Efke 25. This is a beautiful film, although I'm using more of the 100 speed at the moment. The Zeiss lenses really bring the detail through.

    Mike: I was certain your SL66 wasn't either of "my" bodies; that was a long time ago! I lived in Stratford at the time of the sale, at which time I also sold off my M3 and lenses.

    Harry owned Stan C. Reade at the time, and I seem to remember he bought some of the Rollei gear himself.

    I too preferred Stan C. Reade, Harry & Barry always gave me good deals, as I was a struggling young poor guy. Gunther (?) over at Linden was a little less warm, but I did shop there some, too.

    I learned photography from David Hallam, first through an adult ed beginner's class he taught, then I stayed with him for private tutoring for awhile.

    Cheers,

    Earl
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    I wanted to ask about Hadley Chamberlain's store. I have emailed him many times about items on his website but he never replies. Does anyone know anything about him. Is he still trading? His website lists a lot of SL66 gear that I would be interesed in buying...

    I have the exact same experience. I'm interested in his bay VI to 67mm adapter and the blank lensboards. I should just pick up the phone and call.

    Mike, let me know if you do manage to speak to him. It is a bit expensive to call from here (spain)....

    Although the list of second-hand items on his website doesn't seem to have been updated for years, the new parts (Bay VI adapter and lensboards) are still available - or at least they were earlier this year.

    Best,
    Helen

    I've also sent him at least one unanswered email.

    There seems to be more fine gradations in the MF version, while the edge sharpness seems to be about the same.
    The MF version feels somehow "delicate", more sophisticated.

    I can't wait to get my first MF slides back
    Yes, the aparent shaprness has partly more to do with smoother tonal gradient and partly with different rendering of the in-focus and out-of-focus areas with the lenses used in small and medium format (and of course further up in size too :-)... That is the reason some people go for larger [than 35mm] format even if they seldom print larger sizes...
