    Thanks a lot, guys! It's here! I've just developed the first roll of film and it's drying at the moment. But I can already see that it's working just fine. Sadly, my choice of subjects was fairly limited, so I chose a Santa Claus made of chocolate. As this was a special moment for all of us, it was a Lindt one, of course.

    What a joy to focus that thing, the lens is so smooth and the viewfinder big and bright. When it arrived, the camera was kind of sticky and dirty, but when I wiped it down, it was simply beautiful underneath. The lens is fine too with just a few marks on the barrel. The backs are the newer type (not that I would mind the old type), and I was amazed how easy they were to load. A dream. And I love the noises the camera makes.

    A lens hood came with it, but no lens caps - I'll dig for some at the local camera store on Monday. A decent tripod plate is on its way, too. I need a new strap, the old one is definitely yucky. And sure, I'm already looking for a 80mm.

    What an excellent choice this was. And my husband claims he's happy for the two of us. There IS something reassuring about it.

    Wow; that was fast!

    Did it come pre-loaded with film?

    Did you get a pic of the delivery man on his way down the steps?

    It sort of came pre-loaded, there was an old film still in it. I wonder what to do with that... And I was far too shaky to the a pic of the postman. For a moment I thought he might drive by our house. That was an awful moment.

    Dear Antje,

    Enjoy! "We pass this way but once!"

    ...and that's the rationalisation I'm using to justify the Rollei 35 Sonnar I've just bought to go with my Tessar.

    GAS? What do you mean, GAS?! :rolleyes:

    Good going Antje.

    I moved from Mamiya TLR to Hasselblad ten years ago. I bought a 500Cm new in the 70's, loved it, hated selling it, needed the money. Going back was like seeing an old friend. Now I have a fairly complete system, it's so much fun to pay with all the bits and pieces

    Everytime I pick it up I have the pleasure of feeling I am using a truly precision instrument. That means a lot.
