    Those Yashis have a real interesting look about 'em.

    Latest acquisition was earlier this month. A nice clean F5 for $250. Traded three pre-AI Nikkors that I had lying around, plus a flash and some other small items for it. Got the cost down to $125+tax. Was able to keep all of my Nikon bodies, which is unusual for me. Usually wind up trading something away, then replacing it within a few weeks with an identical item (or the exact item that I traded away).

    With respect to the Nikkors, they all were duplicates of what I already owned. I try to get pre-AI Nikkor lenses that can accept an AI conversion ring. The 135 I traded was a little too early to have a ring available for it. The 28 was a donor lens, sourced for the AI ring that was installed on it. Same with the 50 that I traded away.

    It's been one year since my latest acquisition (F3HP). I like my F2S better, but the two cameras are functionally similar to one another, which is nice.

    Today, I lost another ebay auction for a Nikkor 15/5.6. The damn thing had fungus in it, but nonetheless, I watched in horror as the bids kept inflating the price. I'm especially heartbroken because the seller was local to me and I was able to handle the lens in person. They wouldn't let me make a cash offer, though; they showed me the door instead.

    Does anyone else lust after a 15mm? I might have to go the Voigtlander route.

    The last camera I purchased (Nov. 2012) was an Ansco Memo 35mm 1/2-frame from about 1927. I believe it's the 3rd version with the plate behind the shutter release. A friend of mine, I recently discovered, had the D-shaped film cartridges I had been searching for for several months. I couldn't believe my luck, so, I purchased 2 of them and will soon be trying out this little beauty very soon.

    A Tougodo Meisupii J. Takes non-perforated 35 mm film with backing paper. I shall try to codge up some film using ordinary 35mm stock to see how the camera goes. Clearly not a daily user!

    I see that your has the nonfocusing Cinemat lens? These are very cool cameras. Leather over wood.

    I have shot with mine but haven't processed the film.

    Just picked up a Kodak Signet 40 off ebay. It's in wonderful condition and should be a lot of fun to shoot.

    Yep, this Ansco Memo camera has an Ilex-Ansco Cinemat f6.3 lens. No focal length is listed on the lens. A U.S. Camera (April 1965) magazine article lists the focal length of the Cinemat f6.3 lens at 30mm while Brian Coe's book, "Cameras: From Daguerreotypes To Instant Pictures", lists the same lens at 40mm.

    Anyway, I received your PM, Mike. Thank you!
