    My latest is a Minolta XE-5 with MC Rokkor PF 1.7 50mm in very good shape for $6. The mirror was stuck in the up position since the batteries were dead. New batteries and it works like new.

    Newest old camera is a Praktica MTL 5B. Bought it at a car boot this morning for £15.00. Price included a 2x converter and a Leningrad light meter and a useless flashgun which is already in the bin).

    In keeping with my user name;
    Another Olympus Pen VF camera. This early production one was not made by Olympus but by a subcontracter, Sanko Shoji. From Oct/1959 to May/1960 production of the original Pen viewfinder design was carried out by the subcontractor with final inspection and shipping to distributors by Olympus. In June 1960 Olympus took over production (and never could quite keep up with demand).

    I've been looking for one of these for quite a bit.

    The original Pen featured a 28mm 4 element 3 group f3.5 lens stopping down to f22, 28mm on 18X24mm half frame format has about the same angle of view as a 40mm lens on a 24X36mm full frame format. The whole lens rotates out to a close focus of just under 2 feet. The viewfinder has a projected bright frame, .5 magnification and extra markings for less than 3 feet. The shutter is a 2 blade Copal leaf w/X sync and speeds do 1/25~1/200 and B.

    After cleaning the viewfinder and refoaming the back I've got my first roll, Ilford Pan F, in the camera and should have it finished shortly. I am a card carrying 'half frame nut' and just bring these cameras everywhere.

    Picked up a late Nikon F4e yesterday, in really nice condition. It's a little more complex than my F...

    I just ordered a Zeiss Contessa 35 from KEH. This is the first series with a 2.8 Tessar and Compur Rapid X synch shutter. It does have a built in light meter, which if it works would be nice, but I have a fine old Norwood Director which would continue the vintage theme.

    My latest are a Nikon FE2 and a Kodak Retina IIIc. I've owned both of these cameras before and stupidly sold both, but happily now have 'new' examples of each.

    The retina is a cool camera. I recently bought one for my son. I just scored a camera, of a sort. It's an odd handmade 35mm adapter for a 9 x 12 plate camera. It's pretty nicely made of brass, wood and machined aluminum. A turret with a ground glass and a clever film body. It was set up on an Ica sheet film holder which wouldn't fit my voightlander so I refitted it to a spare holder i had. Something very impractical but fun.
