    We used to have a brilliant camera repair man in Sheffield but he is retired now. Where did you get your F1 serviced please?

    I picked up an Olympus OM 2n with 50mm 1.4 lens for 7.99 us, yesterday at a Salvation Army store. It looks rough but it meters right on and everything else works. J

    Was looking through the local CL and spotted a low priced ad titled Minolta accessories and curiously looked to find a low res shot of what looked like filters and such but buried in it look like possibly an XK finder - or perhaps I was wishing it was. So I arranged to pick up the box of stuff and was pleasantly surprised to see it was an XK Waist Level finder and a High Magnification finder - both with caps. Both look unused outside and inside! It's a great compliment to the AE and AE-S finders I already have.



    Adding new finders makes it a new old camera to me . . .

    Thanks Ben for as you know with these types of cameras, sometimes the accessories cost even more than the bodies!

    I used to sell these cameras Les when I worked at a professional dealers when they were current, and I know what fine cameras they are, but they unfortunately never really captured their market share of the pro. market that Nikon had the strangle hold on at the time.

    Nice score. Only two more finders to get. The P finder, so you can have an eyelevel XK, and the match-needle M finder.

    Fujica ST701 with SMC Takumar f1.2 55mm,
    Takumar f3.5 105mm,
    Vivitar f3.5 200mm,
    Fujica ST705 with Fujinon f1.8 55mm

    I bought the Fujica ST705 yesterday for $7.50. It had a smashed lens, won't focus or anything, but I bought it as the shutter works nicely. I've had the ST701 for 6 months or so and it came with the Fujinon 55 and the Vivitar 200mm. I paid $12.50 for the set. The Takumar 55 was $7.50, and I bought the Takumar 105 last week for $9.95. All purchased from local thrift shops. I like the ST705 as it takes modern batteries, meters well, and has a lens lock so you don't over tighten your M42 lenses (newer M42 lenses anyway.)

    And a couple of weeks ago I bought a Canon AE-1 for $20. It had the famous AE-1 shutter squeak which I quickly serviced. This is the first Canon SLR that I've ever owned. Nice camera and as most people know, quite historical as the first camera with CPU control. The shutter works fine. Plan to shoot a test roll whenever it stops snowing around here.

    It also came with the original manuals and a POS Dejur 135 lens with a badly bent mount. I took the Dejur apart to use the elements for effects with my digital cameras.
