    I've got rid off everything recently I've accumulated that I don't use regularly again , the last time I did it was over 20 years ago, I've unloaded a Canon A1 with powerwinder A, an FTbn, a Gossen Profisix (Lunapro) and Weston Euromaster meters and a Vivitar 19mm f3.8, 3 canon FD 50mm f1.8 lenses and
    I find it strangely liberating to divest myself of stuff I don't use.

    A Pentax LX in Bargain condition from KEH. The camera does show a little brassing, especially on the self-timer boss, but only a few minor scratches and no dents. Its obviously used, but not abused. (Just like me!) I blew a little dust out of the viewfinder, installed a new battery and was ready to go! The camera included the strap lugs, and cost about $170. When a winder came up at a good price I bought that, also. I just couldn't resist it...Bwahahahaha! This now makes three LX machines in my stable, two with winders. Is there a 12 point program?

    Two new to me bodies from Adorama arrived today. Black Nikon FM in the original box with paperwork and another Nikon F2, black this time...... and again with a bad meter. I'm 0 and 4 on F2's. This is the 4th F2 that has been delivered with a bad meter. I kept one of the other bodies and sent the finder to Sover Wong for rebuild. This black one is in really nice shape for the price so I'll keep it too and send the finder to Sover.

    Yes - with a "sensor" size of 6 cm x 9 cm (approximately) (assuming you are referring to the Fuji).

    Canon AE-1 came with 3 lenses and a Tele Converter. Like new condition. I just had to replace the gummy light seals. I got it from a Elderly lady who's eyes are getting bad and she could no longer focus it.

    Picked up a "barn fresh" Miranda F at the flea market a few weeks ago, just got around to replacing the light seals and bumper today. Its dirty, dented, missing almost all the tiny little screw in thumb stubs for things like the prism lock, apeture prevue, and one more I can't remember which one. Apeture blades were sluggish and some grime inside the lense, so I disassembled it and cleaned it out. CLA throughout the body and this thing is woking like a champ now! Not too bad for $10 and a Tuesday afternoon. And yes, I am going to leave it all dirty on the outside.

    Didn't think I'd do this, since I've been turned off by the meter readout, but, I have another F3HP. They're so cheap these days, that I can get one, and, if it sits on the shelf, no biggie.

    Hah!

    I found one in a dumpster a few years ago. It was painted in a camouflage pattern with acrylics, had a Soligor 350/ 5.6 lens, and was mounted on one of those shoulder stock thingys.
    Ammonia removed the paint, the stock went back into the same dumpster, and as a bonus, the lens is a T-mount so I can use it on the Pentax H1a I picked up a few months ago. The Soligor lens is surprisingly good.
