    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.

    I bought another classic screwmount SLR, the Yashica Penta J, with the extraordinarily well built Auto Yashinon 50/2 lens.

    The XA is one of the great pocket cameras!

    I know it is not "old" but I got a good deal on a Canon EOS 1N. Seems to focus faster than my EOS 3 but it could be just me not noticing before. For me it is great as the battery pack works on both which works well for my large hands. Also the speed doesn't matter much as I use manual (M-42) lenses to a large extent.
