    Lol, what were you doing in the dumpster in the first place?!

    Yeah, the soligor lens is bright and quite nice. A bonus is that they unscrew very easily so you can clean them up yourself. I've taken mine apart twice now.

    I picked this up locally for $25 (I paid $15 for the lens last summer):

    I wasn't in the dumpster, I was standing next to it preparing to insert my trash. Around here, it's prudent to look in the dumpster before tossing. It could be occupied...

    I finally did some proper film shots of my latest pre-AI bodies, all acquired since March except for the "F", which I've had for a while...... The shots were taken with my other new body, a Nikon FM, on Ilford HP5 plus.

    The F2SB I bought with a DP-1 finder. Sover Wong has finished refurbishing the original DP-3 and it should be back soon. Based on the pics of the internals he sent me it definitely needed a rebuild....... Looking forward to getting it back.

    Took delivery of an Ihagee Exakta Varex IIb today. Has a shutter problem (second curtain does not move very far) but I am hoping that dry firing the shutter a lot of times will cure this. Works on other cameras I have that have not been used for 20/30 years.

    My latest is a Kodak No. 2 box Brownie model E (Canadian Kodak) which I paid £1 for last week. It needed a good clean and some work on the shutter to get it going again.

    This reminds me of a lesson I once learned the hard way.

    Cats hate having bags of garbage land on top of them.

    Zenit E last week. Self timer lever missing and no lens but it cost me £2. Shutter slightly sticky on a few frames but the lightmeter works.

    Picked up a Pentax ME Super in good user contrition today with an M50 1.7, an A28 2.8, an AF200s flash, a couple of hippy straps, a junk tripod, and a vivitar 85-210 zoom for $50. The meter and shutter seem accurate. Pentax prime lenses are in great shape but there's a pretty good 1/4" scratch on the front element of that zoom. Doesn't seem to be worth anything anyway though. Just e mailed Jon Goodman for a seal kit.
