    Got all those but the last two. And my fav? One not on the list: Summicron DR. Love my Summarit 1.5 though! I got a really really early version, at least according to DAG who did a CLA on it for me a few years back.

    Rich, I'm looking forward to seeing what this Summarit does. Test roll from the Summitar is getting souped tomorrow, and then will shoot a direct A/B test for them all once the Summarit shows up.

    Really have to get my SLR gear trimmed down now.

    That will be a fun comparison. I never tried directly comparing my Summarit and Summitar. My Summitar I got really cheap due to some edge separation but it still makes really nice photos. Such fun with all these 50's, eh?

    My college just received a large donation of old camera equipment, including quite a few 35mm SLRs. I was asked to look through it all and come up with a value for the donor's tax records. Going through the cameras, I found mostly Nikkormats, one thoroughly trashed Nikon F, a couple FMs, and basically the lenses you would expect to see (nothing exotic, mostly 50mm).

    And in the bottom of the last box: a 64xxxxx Nikon F with the original (square eyepiece) eye-level prism and a 5cm f/2 Nikkor-S (!) lens, possibly the original lens that came with the camera. It's a little brassy, and in need of a good cleaning, but it seems fully functional. Pretty much made my day.

    My latest purchase was a Nikon FE with and a Nikkor Ai 50/1.4 lens. Needs a clean but for 2000 yen (about 20 USD) I'm not complaining!

    Retina IIIs

    I've been looking for one of these at a reasonable price ever since I started shooting with a Retina S, about 15 years ago. I bought one at a show but the shutter died very soon afterwards–it had been slow and erratic when I picked it up and finally stopped working and I put it away. Its f1.9 Xenon kept pushing me to find another body, though, and today, in my local consignment shop, I found one sitting in a plastic bag among various late 70's slr's and bits of junk more for decoration than picture taking. It is in very nice condition, has the 2.8 Xenar, a working meter and just the bottom of the leather case. The shutter snaps clean and, to my ear, pretty close to accurate all the way to 1 sec. Inside was a half-finished roll of Kodachrome 64 and I paid the princely sum of $32.94 for the whole shebang.

    Now out to try it, original lens and the 1.9.

    I hjave bought two cameras from Ebay this week.

    1) Taron Eyemax rangefinder(No, I never heard of them either).
    2)_ Voigtlander Perkeo medium format folder.

    The Perkeo is sold as defective but I have a good record of cleaning and lubricating old cameras and having them work fine so I am optimistic.
