A couple of weeks ago, a nearly mint Fujica Half. A cool little half frame 35mm first released n 1963; not sure how long the production run was. And, over the weekend, a black Nikon FTN with a pre-Ai 105mm 2.5. And an EX++ Petri Color 35, another cool little 35mm similar in size to a Rollei 35 but, as Stephen Gandy says, everything the Rollei 35 should have been.

Not a body, but I did pick up a 24/2.8 AI Nikkor and a MB-20. Got rid of the F5 and one of my AI'd 50/2 Nikkor-H lenses to make it possible.

Olympus Stylus Epic. $2 at the thrift store. Bottom of battery door is broken and battery door won't stay shut. A little piece of clear tape and problem solved. New battery and loaded up a roll of fuji200. Works great! Man, this thing is SMALL!

Was a good used camera day for me yesterday. Picked up a Canon T90 and later in the day a Pentax ME Super. Both in great shape and not a lot of $$$ spent, just a lot of time. Film is waiting to be developed, in the morning.

Just picked up a 645n with the 75mm and 120mm A lenses this July. It will be a good lightweight compliment to my MF arsenal.

My latest GAS cramp - a Canon T90
I thought I'd finally gotten over my longing for a Canon T90 after buying one at eBay some years ago that had a defective display, which the seller claimed came back to life after I returned it to him, and later getting one that worked fine, but I made the mistake of putting away without removing the batteries [I know better, but did I do better? NoooooOOOOOoo]. It worked for a roll and a half after I cleaned up the leakage residue and battery contacts last summer, but then quit for good. I sold it off last summer as a parts/repair lot, followed by the 300TL Speedlite I used with it, figuring that the EF and AT-1 bodies I have should be enough.
My GAS has been fairly well controlled the last few months, but when I saw the eBay auction for a T90 described as working and having a small bit of oil on a shutter blade, I couldn't resist [I have a light touch with 91% alcohol on a cotton swab]. I matched the seller's opening bid, and had no competition for it.
Delivered yesterday [Thursday, July 31], this T90's cosmetics are EX+, close to mint, and the while the mark on the shutter blade is from wear, not oil, the shutter and electronics are all working as they should. I ran a 24-shot roll of C-41 through it, shooting a few frames with a handy EZ420 Speedlite in place of the departed 300TL, and all seemed OK from loading to rewind. Since York Photo has been giving ten day turnaround of late, it'll be a while before I'll know if all is well.
