    I was sent a very clean Fm2n in black with an almost as clean 50mm f/1.4 just recently. I've not had one this clean before so it's kind of neat to think that I'm going to be the one to brass it up

    Just got a brand new Fuji Klasse W from japan exposures. Beautiful little thing, already tested and working great.
    One problem though, never got the lens shade or battery. They say the shade doesn't come with the camera and costs about $50 extra. Sounds like BS, there's even room for it in the box.
    May have to start a new thread to vent my disappointment.
    Great camera though.
    Cheers, Wojtek.

    I just picked up a pair of OM-10s with manaul adapters. Both came with the usual 50mm F1.8, but the seller also included a 135mm F3.5, a 28mm F2.8, teleconverter, and the Oly 65-200mm F4. My main film camera is an OM40 and I've been wanting a second OM body; so I've been looking for a good OM-2SP or OM-4. Now I think that can wait, there's really nothing wrong with the OM-10 and a manual adapter.

    I have a Vivatar Series 1 70-210mm F3.5, and I expected the Oly zoom to be similar in size. Nope, it is (comparatively) tiny. The built in hood on the zoom and the 135 are nice touches.

    I'm very happy with my $40 spent

    You should be-sounds like a real bargain!

    I'm building up a very small Nikon camera collection right now (my philosophy is to have one camera of each brand along with a decent 50mm lens) and have recently acquired an FA and an old FM. The latter being in good condition - considering the age - only the viewfinder is quite dirty, but what the heck!
    The FA is working fine so far, after I had lots of trouble with its two predecessors which both failed me.

    No no. Not going down that path again John haha! I'm not looking to rebuild my Nikon kit as my 1V gets the most use. But since This was more or less given to me I'm going to use it. I have no intention to add more lenses or anything, just a 50mm and lots of black and white film will be suitable enough for me.

    Since I last posted in this thread, I expanded my Beseler Topcon family to include the three levels of product which they sold during the mid-60's.



    As a young teen, the Beseler Auto 100 was what I had available to shoot with, at $159. Desire was strong for the almost affordable Beseler Topcon D-1 (just out of reach for our middle class family at $269), but it was outright lust for the unattainable Beseler Topcon Super D ($420 with f/1.4), the world's first SLR with TTL metering on the mass market (as the Topcon RE Super). In today's dollars, the Super D was $5300 (using the price of gas as the comparative number). It took me 47 years to finally own all three!

    And my son-in-law provided me with this Fotron for my recent birthday
