My latest purchases are a lovely Rollei 35 (Tessar/Singapore) and an Olympus Trip 35.
Both shoot well and I am really digging the Rollei 35, it's cute and fun.

Zeiss Ikon Nettar 518/16 from the local charity shop. I've run a roll of Portra through it... no light leaks and everything working fine. I'm very pleased!

I only ran two rolls of film through it because the vf was just just such a pain for my eyes, and I never got on as well with the scale focus as I had hoped (my plan had been to use it for landscapes where I'd just leave it at infinity). But, my goodness, those two rolls were so sharp. It may be a simple lens, but what a lens. I hope it takes many fine pictures for you, and starts even more interesting conversations.

Not a camera, but a part, to complete it, my metered prism for my Pentacon Six TL 6X6 film camera with that groovy vintage German, zebra striped Zeiss lens, oh yeah baby!

How old does it have to be to be "new-old" if bought used, can it have been made last year?

Heck, I'd say yeah sure why not, but, I think analog would assume the vintage years, and the old new, being, just that! Hey, are you not from that other place too? Don't you recall me, mr. Rebel aka a.rodriguezpix falesly accused of hooliganism xD

Holy 8X10 camera man! Its cool, I was a small enity there, and by hooliganism, I meant I spoke in my own defense, when a few bored folks, with tht almighty high feedback, decided to rant and rave, and eventually reported me to mr Fred himself. after a few warnings, and my inability to accept the accused malice, mr miranda decided to take action, and permanently fix me. xD ahh, if only mr. imagemaster palyed fair xD
