No problem: just get an adapter set, load some 35 mm film and you're covered

My latest is this COSINA CT-1 with 50mm f2 Cosinon lens and the bloke also gave me a 135mm f2.8 Vivitar lens -- I have tested both and they both useable at full aperture

An 'Old Dog still learning New Tricks !
I already had enough 35mm cameras.
But a trip to our local thrift store nets me a Ricoh GR1 and a GR1v. ( odd little cameras )
Then a friend comes by last night and gives me an immaculate Pentax Spotmatic
and near perfect Nikon FM2n.
Black F2 with DP1. My chrome / DP1 was my first proud camera when I was about 15 in 1975, accompanied me as a sailor and sat characteristically unused with the advent of a new family, my P&S era and the digital era. Our 15-year-old daughter's request that I teach her film was the catalyst for my recent gear acquisition syndrome, including a brand new (to me) bathroom darkroom that I hadn't had since my parents volunteered their second bathroom for darkroom service through most of high school.
Bought her a Nikkormat FT2 as her student camera but noticed how dim the finder is compared with an F2 's while testing some polypan. The black F2, her new student camera, had just been CLA'd and I picked it up on the bay for 105. A work of art the F2 is.
My GAS included everything from Argus AF and C4 to Instamatics and a PermaCube electronic flash I soldered net NiCads into. I shot a roll of old Tri-X the other day in the Yashica MAT-124 my granddad gave me when I was a kid. I even have a SpeedGraphic with a bad shutter that I bought for a photo prop that is destined to be repaired and put into service using xray film. I understand that a Minox C might even appear under the tree. So much to play with and so little free time.

Konica C35 AF.
My mother is a bit of an hoarder, though not good enough to get on TV. I'd left specific instructions with her and my Aunt (who is enough of an hoarder for TV) to stop bringing me camera equipment unless it was owned by a family member.
Well, today my mom went to a rummage sale and brought me some stuff for $300. An still shrink-wrapped Montgomery Ward slide tray, a tiny metal Kodak canister with empty reel, probably 16mm, a Kodak Instamatic 134 with a bad shutter, an Ansco Ready Flash (620 film), and the Konica C35 AF rangefinder.
The Konica seems to work, so I might as well take it for a spin. It's not much smaller than my SLR, but might be fun.

I bought a box of "コンパクトカメラ" (compact cameras), and the box arroved in the mail today. Inside were a Canon 7Sz, three Olympus Pen S cameras, and a Pen W. A lucky day...
I bought a couple of black Canons at an estate sale for $80.

Beside the two cameras and lenses in the pictures above, I also got 67mm Vivitar orange and red filters, Hoya +1, +2, and +3 closeup filters, also in 67mm (new), a Tamron aspherical 28~200mm 1:3.8-5.6 zoom (with a 72mm close-up filter), a Vivitar 500mm f8 mirror lens, 2 rolls of FujicolorSuper HGII 20 (36 exp), 1 roll of Ilford HP5 Plus 400, and one roll of Plus X in a re-loadable cassette, various end caps and body cap, spare batteries for both cameras, and the tan canvas bag itself is quite nice.
Both cameras are in excellent mechanical condition, and cosmetically, the F-1 is perfect, while the A-1 only shows tiny specks of brassing from the strap lugs. I think that I done good on this purchase.

Have fun with it, and feel like Andy Warhol (an early-adopter of plastic fantastic AF technology) when you do. Like all Konicas of the time, it has a superb Hexanon lens, and will surprise you with the quality of images that it can produce.
