    So, my first 35mm SLR was a new chrome body SRT-101 I bought when I was 15. I worked all summer to save the $200 to buy it.. $20 more for black in 1973, but I they were sold out the day I went to buy one so I got a chrome one.

    I graduated to a Minolta XE-7 as a second body in 1977 which are only black (finally I got one!). A year later, decided I needed to go Nikon. My first Nikon, a black F2A and a black FM, and sold the Minoltas off. The leap to Nikon from there up till last year when these came back to me.

    After 40 years, I finally have now, what I originally intended to have then. I have both a black SRT-101 and SRT-201 now.

    I picked up over time, the 35mm F2.8, 50mm F1.7 and 100mm F2.5 Rokkor-X's to go along with it, which I only dreamed of having in my camera bag. It is like an old friend has come back into my life. I always liked using the SRT-101, a very simple camera to use.

    It takes me back to a simpler time and I like using it as much now as my other old friend, a black Apollo Nikon FTN and a Nikomat FTN, which I have settled with for my long term Nikon 35mm film setup.

    Just received from the UK a Canonflex RM with 50mm F/1.8 - 50 years old, but in virtually new condition and fully working, though I still have to check the seals.

    $190, plus shipping. It's usually $55 for the return shipping. He recommends using a USPS Medium Flat-rate box to send the camera, since it's actually the cheapest way of doing it. Also, consider sending two cameras. He has a bit of a backlog right now, so doing two cameras might be beneficial. Re: the F2AS, I wholeheartedly recommend having him upgrade it to the heavy-duty ring resistor. One of my DP-12's has already been done. My other DP-12 will be done in a few weeks. Sending some items he had delivered to my house over to him and will put the DP-12 in the box with his items to be shipped over.

    My newest old camera is not 35mm. It is a Voigtlander Vitoret 110 - and I have found a source of 110 cartridges for it - one is loaded at the moment and I am half way through the 24 exposures.

    Not a camera, but a Pentax Lightmeter V at the flea market for 10 dollars. New batteries and it fired right up, and very accurate. KEH has a bargain one for 199.00 usd. J, yea

    Got a Minolta SRT 101 for 5.00 usd plus tax today. Very good condition and the light meter works. I'm really trying to cut down on GAS.
