    I know that there should be no battery issues with the TL Super, it uses alkaline or silver 1.5 volt batteries. That lens is excellent.

    Thanks, I've heard the screwmount Yashica lenses can be very good. The instructions state that it is the first camera to use the then-new S76 cell. It also has a hotshoe, pretty snazzy for 1966.

    A few months ago I bought a Pentax H1a for very little. I thought it would be nice to have a screwmount body so I could play with all the lenses available, it seems to have become a nucleus for a new accumulation of gear!

    Just when I decided that I already had enough, A Nikon FE2 arrived in the post courtesy of a 'gear giveaway' thread on Photo.Net.

    It has a slightly bent shutter blade which I was told needed to be straightened but I'm going to try it as it is first as it appears to work and doesn't let in any light (except when it should).

    My sister recently gave me her Canon AE-1 Program, a camera that she rarely ever used. It, along with the 50/1.8, only needed a light dusting and some film.

    Well, I'm blessed with a wonderful wife who knew I wanted a Nikon F5 or F6... at least that's what I thought she knew! On our anniversary she gifted me with a nice F5 from Adorama. I shot a roll and a half in it - whence I noticed the AF wasn't working properly. Any lens wider than 50mm wouldn't focus to infinity! So I informed my wife, sadly, that the camera must go back. She seemed sadder than I was, but disappeared for a few minutes, then came back and presented me with an F6! She thought I wanted BOTH cameras and purchased both, one for our anniversary, one for my birthday. So I am now the very happy owner of a super nice F6.

    For those of you, on the fence, about whether to grab one of these "last great film cameras" I can only say this thing is amazing. Get one, new or used.

    I love my wife!
