    I started to look at SQs for sale... until the older S2 cameras caught my eye. After a while I found this one for sale for a good price and separately, the Nikkor 200mm lens in a camera dealer's sale (I also have the standard Nikkor 75mm which the camera came with).

    Anyway, it turned up yesterday and here it is on my father's old Linhof tripod which is of similar vintage (1960s).

    Very nice, including the Linhof head! I did did the opposite of you a couple of years ago. I had a square-format Bronica (EC-TL) and traded for a Mamiya RB system. I'm very glad to have the RB but I miss the Bronica and Nikkor lenses. I hope you enjoy the S2, Steve!

Perfect I tell you.
    Abram,

    Nice looking F. Got basically the same kit sitting on my bookshelf waiting until the weather clears (and I get over this flu bug).

    Nice bookshelf, John.

    My latest is a black Nikon FG-20 with its Series E 50mm F1.8 2nd version.

    Thanks! The FG-20 turned out to have a rough winding. just a bit noisy on the gears, so it will need a service.
    And today I couldn't resist to another Nikon EM and its Series E 50mm F1.8. Both 1st version, all black! Ufff, I like EMs!

    New to me F1n

    I just added a Canon F1n ( not New F1 ) to my collection. Nice solid clean camera that hasn't previously been used as a hammer . All it needed was seals replaced. Looked like the PO started the job but did not finish, did provide the foam kit. I had it finished up in an hour. Came with a Vivitar Series 1 35-85 F2.8 Vari Focal, also seems to be a nice lens. I shot a quick roll of B&W yesterday to make sure everything worked OK. Before shooting, I noticed an alkaline battery was installed so I replaced it with a zinc air before heading out ( the alkaline was new and seemed to put things about 2 or so stops off ). I ran though all the speeds ( even slower than I can hand hold ). After processing, all the frames were exposed the same and seemed to be the right density, so happy that it is metering well and would also seem to indicate the speeds are still all good. Today I'm out shooting some Provia 100 which should give a better idea as to exposure. I also like the reasonably tight area for meter sensitivity, gives me a better feel for what I'm actually metering on.

    It joins a, Nikon FE2, Olympus OM1, Vivitar 220, Yashica FX3, Mamiya 1000DTL, Minolta X-700, Canon EOS-3, Mamiya RZ67, Yashica 124G. The Vivitar 220 and the FX3 are probably the only ones I don't take out and shoot with. The OM1 and FE2 are probably my favorites to shoot with, with the FE2 having my favorite metering setup.

    Still on the hunt for a Nikon F3 and Olympus OM4

    Cool. I have 2 as well - but no black body. I plan to shoot mine tomorrow in fact - with a Vivitar Series One 70-210.

    SRT 200, got it yesterday. My sister had it in her basement since the 80s. The battery for the light meter still works!

    I've just finished working on an SR T MC that I paid £10 for. No experience of using Minoltas, though a friend had an SR T 100b in the 70s and I always thought it felt a bit more refined than my Pentax. A web search reveals that the MC was made specifically for sale through J.C.Penney and K-Mart, so presumably US only. Mine is black as I gather they all are.
