    I know I'm going to catch he-double hockey sticks for this, but, let's see here...

    After the chrome F FTn, scored another late F, this time a black one with MD plate, a lens, bunch of filters, etc, for $88.66, plus ship (sold the chrome F to Ralph). Then, came four F2 bodies (three black bodies, one chrome - two of the black bodies got rehomed, along with the chrome body, the third black body is my backup F2 and was the second most expensive of the three, at $102.50, plus shipping - sold my F5 to cover it and a second MD-2/MB-1 drive combo), a Nikomat FT2 I owned earlier in 2013, a black Nikomat FTn that promptly had to be replaced after it was dropped at the post office and suffered damage as I was walking out the door with the box in my hands (so make that two black FTn's), a couple black Nikkormat FT2's, one of which became parts, and the other has become what the Nikomat FTn should've been in 1967-74 (same as an FTn, but using PX76 batteries), and a couple FM2n's. Once I've paid Sean, I will let the less-nice FM2n go, even though it doesn't have a notched film gate where the shutter is.

    So, yes, I continued to buy bodies. Am I remorseful about it? Nope. Do I care that I went against what I said earlier? Nah. It's NAS. I got it.

    Here's my new/old Edinex 35mm. It loads from the bottom like a Leica. Click image for larger version.

    Minolta Hi-Matic F, enjoying very much so far on the first roll.
    All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.

    I have a new Canon F-1 with the AE Prism waiting for me at the post office.

    My very first 35mm camera, bought new in the mid 70's. I loved it and have purchased 3 or 4 more over the years, all of which had the same problem. The black wire in the battery compartment gets corroded. They used acid flux. Sometimes it can be soldered back together at the battery contact, sometimes it's the other end, requiring a complete disassembly.

    I just came into a Nue-View 4x5 "Frankenstein" camera fitted with a large Darlot Petzval lens, a packard shutter and an odd, home-made back that rotates, allowing either a 2x3 ground glass or a roll-film holder for the same format to be centered. Fortunately, in the suitcase that housed the thing, I found the regular back as well and a lens labeled "Kodak Anastigmat, Taylor, Taylor and Hobson" in a Compound dial-set shutter. New one on me.

    Altogether an odd beast. Taking some trial shots this weekend.

    A local second hand shop had acquired this baby from a deceased professional, along with the 20-35 2.8 and 80-200 2.8. Bought the 20-35 last month and the F5 with the 80-200 today after some thinking. It weighs the same as my F4s and included two NI-MH batteries and a charger but they are out of useful life. The F5 is battered but still in perfectly good order, a perfect companion to the F4 in every way; one can take all the old Nikkors and matrix meter with them and the other is a beast with AF and custom program codes.
