    ^ You'll probably need to have the light seals replaced, if they haven't been done yet. Other than that, I suspect that they'll be in working condition (at least the Minoltas - the Praktica might not be 100%, being an east german camera, IIRC)...

    Looks like I just bought a black Nikon FE.

    Weird turn of fate for a long-time Pentaxian.
    Tri-X in HC-110 forever.

    Zeiss Ikon Contessa 35 (533/24). I thought I was done purchasing 35mm cameras but I couldn't resist this one. Everything works just fine except for the meter and the camera looks great, inside and out. The original camera case it came with is very nice, too. The spring-loaded clips of the ever-ready case that grab the camera eyelets (for the neck strap) is clever. The serial number is interesting but probably not significant. It's W95000.

    Olympus OM1 that was CLA-ed in 2007 by the one and only Camtex (John H).
    A little stiff here and there... but wow, John H does amazing work.

    Picked up the black version Canon FTbn. Great looking with a touch of brassing. Very sexy looking with a lens with a black hood. Bit of cleaning, light seals and mirror bumper it's good to go. The pic (not mine) doesn't due the camera justice: Probably why I got it for $20

    You may find that you like it. Lenses mount backward, but, at least the focusing ring and aperture ring turn the same way as on most Pentax lenses.

    I just picked up a Sears KSX-P. I'm pretty impressed with it. I'm used to the post-Walmart world where a store-branded product is cheap crap. This looks like Sears had some pride in their photographic offerings. Looking over the owner manual, I think the Sears was actually nicer than the Chinon CP-5 it was rebranded from. The Chinon's markings aren't as intuitive as the Sear's ("L" vs "Off" - I know which one is more obvious to me).

    I also got a Ricoh 50mm F2 lens. Plastic body, but good damping and darned near pancake depth. So far it seems like a fun little camera.

    The 50mm f2.0 that came with my Sears body is probably a Ricoh lens as well. Might even be the same lens. The mechanical parts are in like-new shape. Everything moves and functions as it should. Just need to wait for some film to return to check everything else. I'm quite impressed the the feel of this camera and the quality as well. Every bit as nice as any of my Nikon EMs.

    The mailman was my best friend yesterday! This camera was saved from the trash, litterally! Nothing wrong with it! A friend of mine is a personal chef for a very wealthy family, he spotted this along with a Leitz/Braun 340 VarioZoom flash in the trash waiting for the housemen to take out. Everything works so far! Just need to run a roll through it to test it out.




    I also got a Yashica-Mat 124G from a fellow member here, but that's for a different subforum.
